QUOTE FROM DAVE:
It’s subjective of course. I’m a “rare bird”, so to speak, sticking to the tour life and to music, and you’re invited to join me in 2023! No fireworks, no flashing lights, no go-go dancers, no special effects. Just great songs and a promise of a heart filled performance.
Yep, I sing all those songs that first hit the airwaves in the 60’s and 70’s. And I’m still a strong believer in the magic of music. There aren’t old songs or new songs, in my mind at least, just GOOD songs. Or not?!
At 76 years of age, I’m still loving performing live concerts. I feel grateful for that, and to tell you the truth it surprises the hell out of me. I’ve been doing it for over 60 years and the love is still there. I present to you… The Endangered Species Tour 2023.
