Hi! I play all kinds of music from Bach to Beatles; from Allman Brothers to Zeppelin. I am available for weddings, parties, clubs, schools and churches. I also have a Bluegrass band called String Theory, and a Rock/Oldies band called Cobalt Blue. I can provide a Cajun band and a Dixieland band (I lived in New Orleans for 6 years) and a Beach Music band (I lived in Charleston 4years). Oh, and I have a music degree from UNC and Music Teaching Certification from NC Central.
Dave and Gary did a wonderful job performing during my husband’s birthday party. I requested beach music and they did not disappoint! Everyone at the party asked where I found such talent! Dave was very responsive through the booking process and had great communication before the event. We thoroughly enjoyed his performance and will ask him back to my next event!
Dave came out to Duke Gardens and played while I sang for a proposal. Everything was perfect. He is an amazing musician and a really nice guy. Will use him again! Thanks Dave for a picture perfect proposal.
Dave and his crew of accompanying musicians put on a great show for our Fourth on the Farm event. Dave was very professional, courteous, and organized, being sure to communicate well ahead of show time regarding logistics and playlists. The band sounded great and we very much enjoyed having them out. Highly recommend!
Dave is great and very talented. Also very professional. Always on time. Again, very talented!
Response from Dave Spencer:
Thanks Kat; always nice to work with you!
Dave is a very talented musician! He plays across several genres with ease. He listened to our "wish" set list and came well prepared...as the night went along he took requests from the crowd and kept everyone entertained until the end. No one wanted the night to come to conclusion. We will definitely keep Dave in mind for future events we host. Thanks for a great evening!
Response from Dave Spencer:
Thanks for the nice feedback John! I had a great time playing for you and meeting your family and friends. Hope to see ya'll again sometime!
We had an all around great experience hiring Dave to sing and play for my wife's 50th birthday party! His set list will cover just about anything you can imagine and we had a really enjoyable evening. Dave really knows his music and his talent is first rate! He is very personable and easy to work with, with good communications.
I would book Dave again and would recommend him for your event.
We booked Dave Spencer for my sister's 50th birthday. He was great to work with! He was very professional, learned our requested songs and really made our event fantastic!
What to Expect
I sing and play guitar with amplification if needed.
I have been playing music ever since I can remember. I leaned harmonica when I was around 2 years old, and added ukulele when I was 6. I joined my elementary school band in 5th grade, and started learning guitar when I was 12. In high school, I played in the symphony band and the orchestra. I played guitar with the Greensboro Youth Theatre. I majored in music at UNC-Chapel Hill, and played in venues such as The Cave, Town Hall, Cat’s Cradle, and Bluegrass festivals in Camp Springs, Johnston County, and King’s Dominion. In 1981, I moved to New Orleans and played on Bourbon Street at The Old Opera House, Famous Door, Papa Joe’s, 500 Club, and Cajun Country. I also played at The Louisiana World’s Fair in 1984 and Jazz Fest in 1985. In 1987, I moved to Charleston, SC, and played at many clubs and Resorts such as Kiawah and Seabrook. I have been playing in Raleigh since 1991.
Additional Booking Notes
I am totally self-contained; all I need is electric power, and chilled water. I even have a battery amp, so I can play without power if needed.
