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.

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 😇

I hosted a small dinner party in celebration of my 50th birthday. With COVID, we kept the group size small (10), and hired David to provide live music (one of the things we miss most about this year). From start to finish, my experience was excellent. He was responsive and easy to work with. He has an impressive song library which aligned with my desired style (80s/90s and today, songs that we all know all the words). His voice is amazing! And when we were having too good a time to end, he was able to stay and perform for an extra hour. We will definitely work with him again.

David was incredible!!! And yes, that is three exclamation points, he earned every one of them! My husband hired David for our anniversary to play a private show on our patio since we haven’t been able to leave the house due to COVID. My husband requested he play our first dance song from our wedding (a Lauryn Hill, reggae mix with a short rap interlude), which is not David’s specialty but he learned it just for us and delivered! It was amazing! And in fact, many of our neighbors joined in the fun from the sidewalk to listen to the sweet music David played. David was punctual, communicative throughout the process, and had state of the art equipment for any event, large or small. We even extended his time by two hours since he was so good! I cannot recommend David more highly for your event! Thanks for everything, David!

David did a fantastic job performing at my wedding. His live sets were great. He also helped provide us with recorded music for the portions of our ceremony and reception where we needed and wanted it. He was on top of everything and did a great job jumping in and making it woke when things went longer than expected or didn’t follow the exact timeline we envisioned. I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Highly recommend.
