Dave Eatman / Bio

Just a little about myself - for starters, I am currently a guitar and bass instructor at The Landau Guitar Co. and Howren Music. I've been playing guitar for twenty six years and bass guitar for about seven years. Twenty one of those years have been spent performing with bands ranging from R&B, rock, jazz and blues, to jazz-funk fusion. The most notable band that I've played with in recent years has been Bellyfull. I am currently playing with several groups, Automatic Chi, Bellyfull, Daily Soul, Shana Blake & Pivotal Soul, and Nita B. & The Swingin' Soiree. One of the things that made me want to start playing was my father, who was not a musician, but listened to jazz and blues records around the house. There were also two specific experiences that made me want to play... an older friend in the neighborhood left a copy of Jimi Hendrix's, "Are you Experienced?"at the house and after listening to it, I knew that I had to play the guitar. The second one being when my Dad took me to see Buddy Guy perform at a local club called the Double Door Inn. I was completely blown away. Over the years I have been fortunate enough to share the stage with some of my own personal favorite acts such as Garaj Mahal, The Yonrico Scott Band, Schleigho, Col. Bruce Hampton, Project Z, Oteil & The Peacemakers, The Jazz Mandolin Project, The Benevento Russo Duo, Bon Lozaga, Jimmy Vaughan, and Buddy Guy...
