About Dave
When I'm not teaching, it usually means I'm...

...playing live, somewhere. My main band is Crack The Sky - an all original prog-ish band signed to Loud & Proud Records . We've released
20-some records and we play music that is often challenging and always intense. Lots of room for improv. Here's our latest video: 

In between CTS shows I play with a few other bands, including:

Several Species (Pink Floyd tribute)
Petty Coat Junction (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers tribute)
Dave DeMarco Band (epic classic rock covers)
Radio Religion (other epic classic rock covers)
Walrus Boot (original avant-garde rock w/ members of Clutch and Farquhar)
And lots of fill-ins

Prior to these bands there have been funk bands, dance bands, metal bands, country bands, other prog bands, praise & worship bands, (whew!)...all told, about 200 gigs per year since 1998, everywhere  from the enormo-dome to the corner bar. 

But wait! There's more...

I love recording almost as much as playling live so I'm thankful that I get to do session work and play on songs by other artists as well as cues for TV, film and video games. My discography runs about 50 titles deep.

So when you add up all the lessons, sessions and gigs, there are days when I have a bass in my hands for 10+ hours. Without the expert guidance I was fortunate to have, I never would have made it here. My teachers and mentors  motivated me kicked my butt into gear on the regular!
