Manager: That's Me - I manage to get up in the morning and then manage to occasionally pick up a guitar and play some music.

Bio: I am basically a Solo Artist not because I want to be but because it is sometimes too hard to catch up consistently with other Musicians when you work Shift Work and live in a Small Country Town. But that's life so you do what you can when you can with whoever you can, if you get my meaning.

Twitter_icon_for_status: Taylor T5 excellent guitar so playable and sounds great through a Fender Blues Junior or in acoustic settings straight into the PA.


“Ok guys and gals and sheep a change of venue a change of time and a change of day. All worked in favor for the crew, The lively Saturday evening idea at the Criterion worked a treat. An event listing on Facebook plus of course Dear Old Reverbnation.com all worked well to promote the evening. Dave ran the show provided the PA and a lot of the equipment and Musos form far and wide came to play like Mice to the Piper's Flute. Ok not quite but when they were called at least 12 responded and one almighty nightly jam ensued. The music flowed almost non-stop from 7pm to midnight many different styles and flavours. Look like the Bar has been set quite high to beat this one guys. But they'll do it all again maybe at the end of April I reckon they said. Many of the hardened front bar patrons though preferred that area to the Dining Room and it was hard for the sound to carry out to the Front Bar so I have heard that there maybe a change to a closer area for the next show. Ok Rock On guys.”

Q: SO Dave what makes you want to write songs and perform your own music ???
A: Well Dave you know yourself when some words stick in your brain you just have to write them down and sometimes they turn into a song. A situation that you see and hear unfold can turn into a song.... you just have to let it unfold.
