Dave was born in Illinois in 1953 the fourth of five children.
He grew up in a very old town of Woodale where his father worked in
construction and his mother a stay at home mom.
He became the first member of his family to continue the interest in music.
His brothers and sisters all tried playing instruments but lost interest very quickly.
Dave learned the guitar at age eight, and took an interest in singing as well.
Doing vocal impersonations was a hobby of his copying the styles of Elvis,
the Beatles, along with other rock-n-roll artists.
During his teenage years,(in and out of Rock-n-Roll bands) he spent a lot of time
in recording studios cutting 45 RPM records to sell to their fans trying to make it in
the music industry.
When he turned 18 years old, he turned from playing Rock-n-Roll to Country music.
From 1986 to 1993 Dave was invited to be a member of a well known Chicago
Country Music group called "Heartland". Playing keyboard,and guitar.
Opening acts for ...Marie Osmond, Lee Greenwood, Ronnie Milsap, Ronny McDowell,
and many others.
After the band split,he focused on being a single act.
In early 2008 Dave put together a Tribute show to Kenny Rogers.
The show is called "A Touch of Kenny & Friends". His ability to impersonate Kenny
comes so easy because his natural voice is so close to Kenny Rogers it's uncanny!
He moved to Phoenix Arizona in 2010.
In march of that same year he was cast'ed by Movie Works (a motion picture company)
to play the part of Kenny Rogers in a movie called "QUEENS OF COUNTRY" not yet rated or released.
