My Biography & One Sheet
Dave’s interest in music began at the age of 4 years old. Artists such as The Beatles, Peter Paul & Mary and Elvis Presley were a very large part of Dave’s musical influences. His first live performance in front of an audience was the 5th grade talent show where he sang “Do You Want to Know A Secret” by The Beatles. This is when Dave realized he enjoyed singing in front of a live audience.
He then went on to perform in the musical play, “Joseph and His Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”. Being that was successful, he starting singing for different professional theater productions such as “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum” & “Anything Goes” as well as many more. Being high in demand regionally, Dave performed at many corporate events held by some very prominent companies.
Radio stations such as WAQY Rock 102.1 brought him in to perform live on the air. Radio on-air personalities, Bax & Obrian, enjoyed his entertainment and interviewed Dave giving him rave reviews. Dave was then picked up by the Doo-Wop Society to be the support act for the international band “Shades Of Blue” who was the opening band for “The Beatles” in the USA.
That performance grabbed the attention of the Mayor of Chicopee, MA. He then invited Dave to perform at The Huke Lau Theater and the turnout was a tremendous success. That led Dave to performing for many different City Municipal events. The then, Massachusetts Governor, Charlie Baker reached out to Dave to perform at The Chelsea Soldiers Home. Dave is currently performing live with bookings around the country. So Go Ahead and Contact Him for a performance of your very own!
