Born in South East London, For the first 8 years, David slowly developed a passion for music with every open opportunity having a go on the school piano.
At the age of 9, his parents bought him his first organ which was a Bontempi from Woolworth’s, unfortunately his persistent practising on the Bontempi stretched his parents tolerance until they could stand on more, so he was given the option of attending lessons and a new organ.
Throw Away The Books
After 1 year’s tuition, he decided that he would throw away the teaching books and play by ear. At least that way, he could progress to more exciting material other than “Merrily We Roll Along”.
Through the years
Through the years David was inspired by his idol, Harry Stoneham, this encouraged him to form his Trio that consisted of Drums, Tenor Sax and Organ. The Trio become familiar faces with local Working Men's Clubs, Bowls Clubs and then on to Masonic Ladies Festivals, Social Evenings and Dinner Dances.
Ability to play by ear
Many of you who have heard David in concert will know that he never carries music with him. David’s concerts are performed by his ability to play by ear. This ability enables him to choose his material, listen to it once or twice and then play it. David is now known around the country for performing at Music Festivals, Dinner Dance, Masonic Functions, Organ and Keyboard Clubs.
Over the years, David has produced three albums, Memory, Always On My Mind and his latest CD On The Road.
40 years of experience
With over 40 years of experience in the music business, David has the pleasure of being manager of Musicland (UK) Ltd in Bromley Kent.
