Piano / Keyboards
David's musical roots began when hearing early rock and roll on the radio and listening to his grandmother's Broadway record albums. After dabbling in cornet, piano, and drums, he picked up his older brother's nylon-string guitar and has been in awe of the instrument ever since.
Fingerpicking led David to his first folk-music professional gigs, followed by playing electric guitar in clubs in Gainesville, Florida. He became fascinated with jazz guitar and played in the University of Florida jazz band in his senior year.
After moving to Atlanta, he continued to play guitar in various settings, write songs, and learn to play the tenor banjo. David played guitar with the Alpharetta City Band for three years and is currently a member of the Roswell New Horizons Band, playing big-band jazz and swing tunes.
As guitarist for the T Tones, David appreciates the group's fellowship and the variety of songs, from jazz
