In one line? I am a dynamic, energetic, lively, confident & witty individual, determined to fulfill his dreams. I believe that I have the best job in the world as a Soul, Motown & Reggae Tribute Singer helping people to let their hair down, enjoy themselves & have a great time. I love life and I am an optimist most of the time. I can be straight forward when I needs to be. I usually know what I want and put real effort into getting it. I regularly perform at Weddings and private functions as well as various at Hotels, Restaurants Golf clubs etc and larger venues. Known to a variety of venues as the “Party Starter”, I always endeavor to create a party atmosphere, involving the crowd, encouraging sing along, participation and interaction. My dynamically stylish stage presence never fails to excite, leaving crowds chanting for more, more, more!

Dave graced channel 4s DEAL OR NO DEAL (12th September 2011) with his larger than life personality. He earned the bankers respect and walked away with £35K.
“We both got a slice of that cake” said The Banker who asked Dave to sing us out. Just as Dave was ready to sing, the screen went black and all we could hear was The Banker’s cackle. This resulted in viewers searching frantically to hear Dave sing after the banker's antics of teasing and building up the anticipation to hear him sing.

Testimonials

'"I just had to take the opportunity to thank you for the wonderful show you put on for us on Friday night in Bristol. From beginning to end you were a true professional and I was actually surprised when my ladies weren't up dancing at the first opportunity. I then realised that you had 200 ladies captivated with that voice that flicked from Motown to Reggae to Soul and the great classics with such ease -fantastic! Thank you"

How are you? Hope all is well? Where do I begin? My husband and I would like to take this opportunity to say a massive BIG BIG thank you for our wonderful wedding evening reception. As ever you were fantastic and every one really enjoyed their selves. Every one asked were did we find you? Of course I am very happy to pass on your details and continue to praise you forever. You made our night and I can not thank you enough! Sorry about my husband he did of course get very drunk! But in a nice manner, but sadly he doesn't seem too remember the later part of the night! I of course remember the whole day and night! What a wonderful memory to hold. Thank you again very very much.
