Dave Hughes

IN 1984 THE HUGHES FAMILY WAS CALLED TO THE U.S.A. FROM SHEFFIELD, ENGLAND BY A CHURCH IN UPTON, MASS WHO HAD DAVE'S FATHER PASTOR THE LOCAL EVANGELICAL CHURCH THERE. DAVE, UNFORTUNATELY, REBELLED AGAINST HIS PARENTS WISHES AND BECAME A ROCKABILLY CAT, LISTENING TO THE SOUNDS OF, THE STRAY CATS, ELVIS, SHAKIN' STEVENS, MATCHBOX, BILLY IDOL, GEORGE THOROGOOD AND SLEEPY LABEEF, TO NAME A FEW.

IN 1985 DAVE GOT TO MEET SLEEPY LABEEF IN MASSACHUSETTS AND THE TWO OF THEM HIT IT OFF RIGHT AWAY, DAVE PLAYED FOR SLEEPY FOR 18 YEARS! TOURING ALL OVER THE USA AND EVEN GOING TO AUSTRALIA, JUST THE TWO OF THEM. SLEEPY ADMIRED DAVID'S TALENTS VERY MUCH, DAVID COULD PLAY PIANO, GUITAR. DRUMS AND BASS SO WELL, ON SOME TOURS YOU WOULD SEE DAVE WITH SLEEPY, BUT WHO KNOWS WHAT INSTRUMENT HE IS PLAYING THIS TIME!!! IT WOULD CHANGE FROM PIANO TO DRUMS TO GUITAR AND SOMETIMES BASS

WHILE WORKING WITH SLEEPY, DAVE FORMED "DAVE AND THE ALLEY CATS" IN 1990. NOW HE HAS LEFT SLEEPY AND HIS BAND AND HAS DEVOTED HIS TIME TO "DAVE AND THE ALLEY CATS"

THEY PLAY AROUND THE USA AND DAVID RECENTLY GOT A CALL FROM SHAKIN' STEVENS MANAGER TO LET HIM KNOW THAT HE IS BEING CONSIDERED TO BE THE SUPPORT ACT ON THE NEXT EUROPEAN TOUR THAT SHAKY WILL DO. PRETTY GOOD I SAY!
DAVE AND THE ALLEY CAYS PLAY A BLEND OF COUNTRY SWING, BLUES, ROCK"N" ROLL, GOSPEL, TEXAS BOOGIE AND ROCKABILLY, A FINE SHOW TO SEE.
