Trace Adkins/Travis Tritt Impersonator Tribute Artist began his musical career by playing the bass guitar. He has worked with several signed bands including Metallica, Griffen, and Cry Wolf. While in a local bay area band Snyper, Dave had the opportunity to open for many national acts like Primus, Wendy O Williams, Man O' War, Death Angel, and Heathen. Dave decided to create a band that paid tribute to his favorite band, Thin Lizzy and assumed the front-man position of Bassist/Vocalist.
The Thin Lizzy tribute band enjoyed nearly 12 years of performances all over the Bay Area. As an entertainer, Dave found that people often comment that he resembles the look of country western singer Travis Tritt. This prompted Dave to develop a Travis Tritt tribute project. He performed in showcases on the Legends stage at the Imperial Palace. A photo of Dave as Travis Tritt accompanied a front-page feature story about the convention in the July 1, 2004, edition of The Wall Street Journal. In August 2004, Dave was featured in the CMT (Country Music Television) show, “CMT Most Shocking: Imposters – The Life of a Celebrity Impersonator.” In 2004, he competed in the World Tribute Artist Championships in Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada, and won first place in the Best Country Tribute category. In 2006, Dave put his long, lean looks and bass vocals to work as a Trace Adkins tribute artist, performing smash hits including “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk” and “Swing.”
Dave is available for corporate and private events.
