Here’s a little bio of David in case you’re not aware, followed by a description of Rock ‘n Doze:
David is a 3 time “Best of Westword” winner based in Denver, Colorado. He is originally from Manchester, U.K. He grew up listening to Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley, and from there his musical world opened up as he explored music that moved him over the years.
As a guitarist, he backed 2 Rock n’ Roll Hall of Famers — Bo Diddley and Del Shannon.
He has also backed Dr. John, Solomon Burke, Rufus Thomas, Sir Mack Rice (writer of Mustang Sally), Billy J. Kramer, Dave (The Crying Game ) Berry. He has opened for Los Lobos, John Mayall, Albert Collins, Koko Taylor, A.C. Reed, and many other Legends of the Blues.
David moved to Colorado in 1981 and has been playing music full time ever since. Currently, he plays 6-7 gigs a week, mainly solo, with occasional duo and band line-ups. On Monday nights, he has a steady gig at “The Pec” (El Chapultepec, Denver) but will come talk to COMBO next Monday about some of his concerns with the “Business of Music” here.
