Introduction: Often dubbed "Cat Stevens meets Adam Levine," David is a pop/rock singer/songwriter/guitarist in the Washington, DC area who has shared the stage with/opened for an eclectic mix of acts both solo and with his full band, including Maroon 5, Toby Keith, Owl City, Journey and Eric Hutchinson, to name a few. He has also been a featured act for the Washington Redskins, Washington Nationals and the Citi Open (formerly the Legg Mason Tennis Classic). With a repertoire of over 500 songs when playing solo, including acoustic top 40 from the '60s to now, as well as original material in the singer-songwriter realm, he performs with any format from solo to a 4-piece rock band. David always makes an effort to try and fit with the flow/feel wherever he's playing. Some performances, like many wedding ceremonies and cocktail hours he's played, require a more intimate, laid back type of performance, sometimes as background music. Others, like bars and clubs, tend to need something more driving, upbeat, and "up front," so people can dance. He can provide both of these, or something in between even, depending on the circumstances and what's desired.

David arrived as scheduled and was very personable and open-minded as he was playing for a 2 and a 5 year old's joint party. David was very professional and read the party for the type of music was needed at which moments. It was perfect. The parents had a great time and the kids had a blast dancing. I would highly recommend David! It was a pleasure to work with David as he was very responsive and had a great vibe from beginning to end.

David was fantastic! We hired him for a small family gathering with several teenagers. He has a great variety of songs he can play and a wonderful demeanor. Everyone enjoyed the music and loved being able to requests songs to each individual liking. You will not be disappointed if you hire him!

It was a real pleasure having David perform at my wife's 35th surprise birthday party brunch. We only talked through Thumbtack and amazingly were able to confirm everything we needed through our Thumbtack messages. David is not only talented but he's also willing to go the extra mile to ensure your event is special. The coolest part was definitely the fact that David was able to learn a few Hindi tracks (aka Bollywood) and nailed the music!!! I will definitely hire David again in the very near future. For all those reading this, you won't regret hiring this musician. In all sincerity, I'm surprised he hasn't gone viral yet 😇
