Set List

The great thing about Dave is he has no set list... Seriously..
This drives his band mates loco, but creates a spontaneous, fun show---If Dave needs to do more comedy oriented songs, he'll do it, if the audience wants more sensitive singer/ songwriter tunes, Dave can do that too..
His kid shows? Well let's just say that they are total interactive fun--Music, humor, hula hoops, jump ropes, limbo sticks, bubble machines, and did I mention fun?
So you can't count on what Dave sings, but you can count on having a blast....Available as solo, duo (preferred), trio, or whole band (4 additional players)
