Honey Brook area singer songwriter Dave "The Roadman" Mantz followed with his blues-infused brand of acoustic folk. Daves songs range from happy romps like "Clancy's Bar, to thoughtful odes like "Child of the Road" to songs about women and motorcycles such as "Rhonda's Ride". - Jim Price, Pa Musician Magazine, March 2011

Dave the Roadman from Honey Brook, was up next. He is a Folk/country singer and his songs really catch your attention. He sang a song called "Rocky Mtn. Roller obviously that got the sound girl's attention. She is a former Harrisburg Area Roller Derby girl so it was a very personal song for her. Dave definitely gets you laughing with his lyrics. Sometimes you can't even beleive the words that are coming out of his mouth. - Rachel Rocks, Pa Musician Magazine, March 2011


Among the musicans, who came to chat at the BNOW table was one inspiring individualin particular, Dave the Roadman who came to pick up a domestic violence sticker for his guitar. When asked how he became involved in such a worthwhile cause, a moving story ensued.
A few years ago, a woman in Dave's community experienced domestic violence at the hands of her husband and was murdered as the result of this abuse. The abuser then turned the gun on himself, which left their child and a household of belongings behind. At the subsequent yard sale, Dave bought a box of books and found a book on how to leave an abuser. As he leafed through the book , a letter from the victim fell out, which had an accound of the steps she had taken to leave her abuser and to reach out for help. She called the police several times, but they were reluctant to get involved. When he realized the tragic consequences of this victim's battle against domestic violence, Dave channeled the woman and told her story in song.

Songs about love, and life on the road. Dave has a John Prine way of telling a story. With a mix of finger style and slide guitar, each story lets the listener experience life on the road. To quote Dave "Life got a whole lot more interesting once I added the soundtrack"
