David Honigsberg


NY City Country Just because I live in New York City doesn't mean I don't know country. I'm somewhere between New Country and Ya'llternative and love performing for just about any size audience.


David Honigsberg has been playing guitar and writing songs longer than he cares to admit, but if you press him, he’ll confess all. He has performed on stages from coast to coast, including New York, Boston, Atlanta, Anaheim, and Seattle, and recently opened for Eminent Records recording artist Rosie Flores as part of WDVR-FM’s acclaimed “The Loft @ Studio D” concert series. As a founding member of the country/blues/rock band the Don’t Quit Your Day Job Players, he penned crowd favorites “Brown-Haired Woman” and “When the Magic Goes Away,” among others, and is constantly at work on new songs.

An accomplished rhythm and lead guitarist, his Clapton-inspired leads can be found on numerous songs on his current release, The Pattern, including “Move Down that Highway” and “Waiting for You.” He performs on a Sigma thin-line acoustic electric, a Takamine 12-string, a Guild solid body S300-D, and a Guild Starfire III archtop.

When not hard at work on his music, David also writes prose. His short stories have appeared in numerous anthologies, including Elric: Tales of the White Wolf, The Ultimate Silver Surfer, On Crusade: More Tales of the Knights Templar, and Bruce Coville’s UFOs. In addition he has also written a number of role-playing supplements for Atlas Games and for Hero Games, most notably Ars Magica Kabbalah.

Set List

There is no "typical" set list, as every list should be tailored to the venue. Right now I'm concentrating on tunes from the new CD, but I mix in some of my Don't Quit Your Day Job Players songs, along with selected covers from various country artists from Trace Adkins to Garth Brooks to the Austin Lounge Lizards and Big & Rich.
