Dave performs on guitar, violin, and occasionally bass in a wide variety of settings - "professionally" for the past 19 years (after relocating from Atlanta) in Destin, Florida. Warm up gigs have included Colonel Bruce Hampton and the Aquarium Rescue Unit, the Radiators, the Little River Band, the Call, Edwin McCain, 38 Special, Skid Row, David Allan Coe, the Producers, Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes, and on and on
Dave started out on the violin as a youngster. His professional career began in Destin, Florida on bass with a "house" band. After many years of guitar-envy Dave began performing on guitar and subsequently electric violin.
The advent of live-looping has enabled what is the "Dave
DeMonki" show. Dave records his guitar/instruments as he plays
and recycles sections of songs to play solos over. Dave combines tradition
and experimentation to achieve a unique and familiar sound that speaks
to a wide audience.
