Dave has a great voice. Songs were great. Unfortunately, the equipment was not. PA system or speakers sounded blown. Dave was very polite and helpful, he even stayed longer and played another set for us.
Response from Dave Monte:
Unfortunately, i did not know the size of the area i needed to throw sound to and i brought the wrong system..should have been larger.. But the client was pleased overall and im sure i got a better sound after moving speakers and adjustment...
Great customer, extremely nice people.. Plreasure playing for them...

What to Expect
Professional Appearance and Attitude, Personality and the ability to keep the patrons in the bar and keep the register ringing.
I've been performing acoustic classic rock since 1999. I've played all over NYC and NJ primarily but have done seasonal stints in Fla, NC, Ocean City MD, Myrtle Beach SC, the NJ Shore on occasion.
I bring great musicianship covering not only your standards like The Eagles type fare, but eclectic cuts by Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, The Stones, Tom Petty, Kid Rock, etc.
My goal or selling point is that when I am given the opportunity to play at a bar is that I realize that I'm responsible for keeping that register ringing and having people not only stay if they are there when I walk on, but have them call their friends all tell them "you've got to come check this guy out"!
So, I recognize that I'm pretty much handed the keys to the venue and take that very seriously but pride myself in bringing great material and great equipment to fit whatever room i am given the privilege to play.
