1. Dave Van Sise a.k.a. "DVS" has been playing guitar and in clubs since 1975 and songwriting as long as well. Award winning singer/songwriter/Rhythm guitarist/ Blues Harpist, Dave has gone from NY to Florida and decided to stay in Florida like a native. Through many years of experience and a number of Bands, Dave has now the ability to have the Band of his dreams and that is "DVS" the Band. With some great unique originals in tow, Dave has begun to become more of a Songwriter now than ever before, singing from the heart every word that he writes in song. "DVS" the Band is not going to be just your everyday sounding Band. But one that you not soon forget!

2. Scotty Scott- Our Master Bassist, lives in St. Petersburg, Fl.
Scotty has over 30 years of professional performance experience, Having played with many Bands in the Tampa Bay area and is now a part of the "DVS" equation. Scotty is not only a Master Bass player but Is a part of the Main functions of the Musical structure of the Band, giving it that Rich, Gutsy Rock sound we have. We are honored to have Scotty onboard.

3. Ken Budd- from Riverveiw, Fl., Ken is "DVS" the Band's greatest Lead guitarist to grace our stage. A family Man like the other men in the group, Ken takes and adds true depth with his lead guitar work and his vocal talents. An element that is very hard to find, Ken can take a song, and give it that ethereal touch that transcends it beyond it's original confines.

4. Boone Hawks - from St. Pete. Fl., a Master Rock and Blues Drummer since 1970 Boone has become co-band leader of "DVS" the Band, along with Dave Van Sise are close friends and a great musical trend setters for the Band.
Boone has toured through the south with Bands like Eddie Van Zant, Muddy Waters and Sawyer Brown and since becoming part of "DVS" the band has gone where no Drummer has gone before, right into a new realm of New Styled Original songs that Boone gives Originality and total Backbone too.

I have always like the Moody Blues, Stevie Ray Vaughn, ZZ Top, The Power in vocalists that range from Elvis, Tom Jones, and even The Great Caruso. I write what I feel at the time. Melodic tunes become retrospective, while My rocking tunes display either excitement or great Frustration. It can be difficult to be objective about you music. All I can say is: "My Music, is My Music!" - David Van Sise
