Lead Vocals & Guitar
Dave Mack, a 20 plus year veteran, toured the US during the early 80's with Samaki & the Variation's in support of the hit single "Can't stop the Break". In the early 90's Dave also traveled extensively with the legendary "Cool Runnings" reggae band in support of their album "Don Garrgon". Cool Runnings was voted by the Hartford Advocates reader choice poll as "Best Reggae Band" 5 years in a row. In 1996 Dave formed Funk Food, and in 1997 was once again part of a group that won the Readers Choice Poll, this time for "Hartford's Best Funk Band". Fearing that people would think the band only played one kind of music, Dave shortly changed the name of the group to The Dave Mack Band.
While Dave takes pride in performing the music of many legendary artists, he is also an established songwriter and producer himself. Dave recorded, produced, and wrote the bands first album in 1999, titled 14 Grooves. 14 Grooves sold over 6,000 copies throughout CT, and in total The Dave Mack Band has sold over 12,000 CD's. The group now performs in support of his latest CD "One Man, One Guitar, Allstyles".
David is probably the most versatile and professional drummer in the state of CT. In addition to being a solid drummer, he helps take care of the production needs and management of The Dave Mack Band. As owner and proprietor of New England Music (New Park Ave, W.Hartford Ct.) much of the bands equipment and maintenance is personally taken care of by him. David is also a 20 plus year veteran and did all the bookings, management and drumming for Cool Runnings. Dave has played with The Jon Pousette Dart Band, Bates Motel, The Brian McDonald Band, Burt Teague, Jeff Pitchell and many other bands in the New England area. Dave H and Dave M are the primary forces of this band.
Dennis has been a member of the band since 2005. A graduate of the University of Hartford Hartt School of Music, his knowledge of various styles serves the versatility of the band well in all given genres. A pupil of the legendary Nat Reeves, Dennis' professionalism and playing are far beyond that of someone in his age.
Better know as Cleveland from "Chicago". Well versed in Alto, Soprano, and Tenor. He plays with the heart of Ohio and the sound of Chicago.
Scott plays sweet melodic trumpet lines without the blare or harshness that many trumpet players have. He also plays flugelhorn, and has been a regular fixture with Brass Attack and a regular host of the famous Black Eyed Sallies open mic.

Gregg has been seen with pretty much everybody in the state, Including Jamo's All stars, and list of players too long for this paragraph. A 30 plus year veteran Gregg has been affectionately called The "yoda" of The Dave Mack Universe.
Mrs. Myra Mack-
The newest member of the band is Dave's wife of 12 years. Myra has a very exciting list of songs. Although new to the music business, her vibrant style and stage personality adds flare and sexiness to the band. Myra is available upon request for mostly private functions and wedding receptions, but has been known to show up to some occasional the club dates.
"Music and musicians are the key to keeping people happy, interested, and socially interactive in the United States of America. That is my job!" -Dave Mack
