"As Freo as bare feet on South Terrace ... " The Fremantle Herald.

"When it comes to good vibes, the DAVS high energy reggae funk sets the groove every time."
- Karen Gough, Propietor, Settlers Tavern, Margaret River Oct. 2009

“ Dilip n the DAVs certainly get our audiences moving and grooving. Their monthly performances at Gypsys are always a highlight for our patrons and staff.”
- UNA HEALEY - Proprietor of Gypsy Tapas House, Fremantle



“ What Dilip and the Davs bring to a room leaves many live acts for dead, they are great musos, play hot originals and tasteful cover songs, they all look the part but the most effective aspect of this live act is that they always are having fun and all this combined with their image, tunes and musicianship simply compels anyone within ear shot of the act to dance, relax and smile”
- ANDREW RYAN – Bookings & Publicity for : Mojos Bar, The Moon Cafe, Little Creatures Loft, The Castle, The Charles Hotel, the Rocket Room, Amplifer Bar



“It’s good to know there are great musicians out there who do their own thing and yet can deliver melody and musicianship with-out all the same-ness we have shoved into our ears via the main stream. Congratulations Dav’s.”

Bio

Fremantle's busiest and most dynamic original party band playing infectious grooves blending rock, funk and reggae riddims. Up-tempo & high-octane music for seriously funky dancers.

With over 600 shows all around WA,  6 recording releases since their formation in 2008, this eruption of rhythms have become well known for their captivating live performances. The Davs have been multi award winners and nominees in the West and have played at all the major original music festivals in the state over the last 7 years.

Their latest album titled Together was recently voted 6th out of 95 nominations for Reggae/Ska/Rocksteady 2013 album of the year in a worldwide poll of over 8000 voters. A track from the album was also featured on the Qantas inflight entertainment channel 

Another of the band's tracks was used in promo videos for the successful environmental campaign to Save the Kimberley.

Nominated for 3 WAMIs (Best Funk/ Best Blues & Roots/Best Drummer) in 2011; the band also won WAM Song of the year (Blues & Roots) in 2012 for a song called Driller about workers in the Goldfields.
