Born: October 20, 1948 Primary Instrument: Drums
Dave comes from a family of drummers. His dad, uncle and grandfather were all drummers.
He had sticks in his hands from the time he could hold them and there were always drums around the house. Dave's Dad gave him his first snare at 7 and he began to learn what it took to be a drummer.
Dave studied with his dad, Harry; uncle, Don; with Getz/Byrd drummer/teacher, Buddy Deppenschmidt and majored in percussion at Trenton State College(now The College of New Jersey) He also had the distinct good fortune to become acquainted with jazz drummer Jack DeJohnette when Jack lived in West Amwell NJ. His philosophies on the art of drumming and his techniques were truly inspirational....
