I'm an Elvis Tribute Artist living in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. I have been an award winning finalist at several festivals, including, the world's largest Elvis festival, the Collingwood Elvis Festival, Penticton Elvis Festival, and the Lake George Elvis Festival. I have also performed at the New Brunswick Country Music Showcase as well as the 2015/2016 Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, and Elvis Legends New Years Eve Show in Saint John. I play public and private functions/corporate/noncorporate. I am available for house parties, reunions, community events, festivals, weddings, and other events. My shows include a mix of rock, country, inspirational/gospel, and movie songs. Goodwill/charity benefits welcomed. I play 30, 45, and 60 minute sets; tailored sets as well. I generally perform with backing tracks/sound system; have played with bands.
"I met Dave for the first time on New Years 2015 in Saint John Nb. After much phone consultation and texting we finally worked together for the first time. Dave was hired to star as an Elvis Tribute artist as part of a very successful New Years Rock N Roll Legends show. Dave was successful in his role and the crowd loved him! People are still talking about his wonderful performance and how well he interacted with the crowd making them feel special too. He also was a pleasure to work with and very easy going. Dave's strength is is abilty to come across as an ordinary person while fullfilling his role! He has exceptional talent and is a great person. Im glad that ive come to know him and we have many more shows and events planned! I would not hesitate to work with him in any situation"
"I first met Dave 4 years ago at the Penticton Elvis Festival and was drawn not only by his vocals but also his humble way that he pays tribute to the King of Rock and Roll. No ego here, just a genuine desire to sing his very best every single time and bring smiles to the faces in the crowd. He works hard at being authentic while never pretending to be the real thing. I am honored that Dave comes to Alberta every August to perform at my Festival. The crowds love him and so do I!"

"I saw Dave perform twice at the Collingwood Elvis Festival in 2014. First, I saw his performance in an intimate pub venue. Besides the technical and artistic accuracy, and the notable power in his voice, he also had a relaxed, easy approach to interacting with the audience...everyone loved his performance! An hour later, I saw him again, in a very different setting. This time, he was performing two songs onstage for the semi-finals. His onstage repertoire was fascinating… For example, unfortunately, there were technical problems with the CD player, and he had to suffer through a couple of false starts as the CD player kept skipping. Finally, he simply said, "D'ya mind if I do it a coppella?" And he launched into "Danny Boy." The performance was strong and subtle...and earned him a standing ovation. By the time he did his second song (You Gave Me a Mountain), he had the audience (and apparently the judges!) eating out of his hand. His performance on stage was confident, relaxed, and consistent with the original. He's a true Elvis fan, and his love for the music shines through..."

"Back when I was an Elvis, I was the Sundial guy as well and as hard as I tried, I never managed to replicate all the little details like you did. In my case, Marcus always shone through - not good. You, on the other hand, have mastered the intricacies so well that it's easy to forget Dave (in a good way!). I loved the hand and finger moves, the larger moves, the "throwing the scarf" up while looking up, the bending down. From where I was, on the sidelines (I could see you from the side/back), it was really eerie to me. Probably the best 77 performance I have seen. And I swear am I am not saying this to flatter you - I really mean it. I am coming back next year and I will let myself fantasize about you and me 77ing it out in the finals!" -MW
"We booked Dave for a co-worker's retirement lunch. When Dave walked in the room, we had to hold back some ladies as they were truly convinced he was the real King. Dave puts on a great tribute show and has the looks, outfit and the voice to match his moves. Dave's great to work with and will make sure everyone has a great time no matter what the occasion. Hail the Elvis Tribute King!" -ML
"Dave. Your relaxed, confident and professional approach to each performance gave me, the client, instant comfort knowing viewers were going to receive an enjoyable tribute to " the King". Your ability to easily and instantly connect with the audience impressed me a lot. I loved your right on Elvis moves without going over the top. Great voice and Elvis sound supports the excellent visual presentation;excellent wardrobe. Our patrons talked about the show for weeks" -Rene B
