Dave is a swing / easy-listening crooner now based in Queensland's tropical Far North, and located in Cairns as of December, 2020.
After winning the inaugural 2006 Sunshine Coast Senior Superstar (so renamed because of copyright issues from its original "Sunshine Coast Idol"), Dave continues to add to his repertoire those fabulous songs as recorded by artists like Nat 'King' Cole, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Matt Monro, Perry Como, Andy Williams, Tony Bennett, and of course Frank Sinatra to name but a only a favourite few.
Unfortunately, due to having to relocate, I no longer have the honour of singing 'Live' as a featured guest artist with the 35+ piece Sunshine Coast Concert Band, a great musical group that brings musical memories to life with those great Big Band swing sounds from the 30's, 40's and 50's that were so popular in dance halls and clubs around the world - and they still are today! I encourage all to support this group by attending one of its many dances or charity concerts throughout the year, with info available on their Facebook page.
Dave has recently performed publicly at Caloundra Street Fair and during holiday times at Twilight Markets, and added swing to Tuesday "Date Night" and Thursday evenings for the dining and cocktail crowd at Lot 104 and on most Fridays and Sundays at Bavarian Beach Bar & Cafe in Mooloolaba. This has ceased due to my having to relocate to Cairns, where I'm now a regular at the https://www.facebook.com/PalmCoveMarkets and Tanks Markets in the greater Cairns area, the Atherton International Club, along with a number of Age Care residences. For other events, consult the up-to-date Gig Guide tab above. I am now open to offers to sing regularly, meaning most Friday or Saturday evenings and afternoon sessions at local restaurants and venues in the greater Cairns area, after a year of no gigs due to the pandemic of Covid-19, like virtually all in the entertainment industry. I'm fully vacinated for flue as well as both Covid 19 shots. Let's hope that 2021 and beyond is more promising!
