Often dubbed "Cat Stevens meets Adam Levine," David is a pop/rock singer/songwriter/guitarist from the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area who has shared the stage with/opened for an eclectic mix of acts both solo and with his full band, including Maroon 5, Toby Keith, Owl City, Journey and Eric Hutchinson, to name a few. He has also been a featured act for the Washington Redskins, Washington Nationals and the Citi Open (formerly the Legg Mason Tennis Classic). With a repertoire of over 500 songs when playing solo, including acoustic top 40 from the '60s to now, as well as original material in the singer-songwriter realm, he performs with any format from solo to a 4-piece rock band.
What is better than a private concert with an incredibly talented and amazing musician during quarantine? NOTHING! We hired David to perform at a small 40th birthday party and his music exceeded all expectations. His set list contains something for everyone and his performance is top notch. David has the full set-up including lights and everyone was blown away by his INCREDIBLE voice and guitar prowess. We did not want the evening to end and will 100% hire David again. Thank you, David, for making our party amazing!
I booked David only 24 hours in advance of our anniversary. He was great to work with from a booking standpoint. As an entertainer, David was just what we were looking for to memorialize a special occasion during these covid-19 times. His repertoire of music was vast and he plays and sings great.
Thanks for an awesome time!!!
David was awesome !!! So fun, great music and knows 1000+ songs.
David was absolutely amazing. Very responsive with all my requests from music samples, locations and even dealt with extreme weather. It was below 20 degrees the night of my proposal and David waited in the cold, set up and ready to go for us to arrive and gave a romantic and magic experience. I thank him for that and will definitely use him in the future.
Thank you David for a memorable evening for my fiancée and me.
Awesome entertainment for our Halloween party
We hired David for a corporate cocktail event and needed a light background music vibe. Well, David definitely exceeded our expectations. From the booking, to the day of event, David was fast, responsive and communicated professionally. He did everything from covers of pop, country, modern etc. He was so great, we invited him for a second event! Definitely would recommend!
I would like to thank David and the band for their performance at our End of Summer celebration.
All of the members were so professional and kind but the songs and how they played help make the evening even more enjoyable. It was great to hear "Old Town Road" and songs from the Weekend, etc. all with their own special mix and sound. If you want to have an successful event... DAVID ANDREW SMITH AND BAND is what your looking for! FIVE STAR PERFORMANCE!
David was excellent. Exactly what we wanted for our Summer Bbq. Thanks very much
David put on an awesome performance! He kept a 100+ person party going and made the evening! Also very professional, timely, kind - Thanks, David!
David was able to learn some very special songs in just a few days and played them beautifully at my surprise engagement. My wife to be was in awe of his playing and really made our special day even better. If we decide to have our nuptials in MD, we will certainly seek David out again!
Hired David for a family event. Everyone commented on how great he was. So happy we picked him for the event!
We had David for our Resident Holiday Party and it was a hit! Our residents loved it and we will definitely be booking him for upcoming events. Carl was great as well.
David is so talented, accommodating, easy to deal with, has a huge song base, plays to the crowd, and we enjoyed him so much. Can’t wait to have him back.
David performed acoustic guitar for the prelude of our wedding ceremony and background music during our cocktail hour. He was professional, courteous and provided just the right tone for our wedding. We highly recommend David.
David was a perfect addition to our corporate event at Cana Winery & Vineyard in Middleburg, VA. He has a HUGE song list that is endless! He sounded amazing and was super easy to work with. I highly recommend David and I understand he also has a full band! I bet they are fantastic.
David arrive at the event soaking wet because of the weather, he still set up fast to be starting ASAP.
Very professional and friendly, he is also an excellent musician!
Thank you again David and see you at our next event!
Dave was a big hit at our condo's cocktail event. Everyone enjoyed his music, both covers and originals. He was on-time and very professional throughout the event and we'd love to have him back.
David was a pleasure to work with. He is an extremely talented artist, great to have at any event.
I booked David to perform while I proposed to my girlfriend. It took a fair amount of coordination between him and the photographer I booked and David came through with flying colors. He was battling a sinus infection, but still managed to perform brilliantly. Highly recommend his services; very professional and talented musician for a great price.
He was a life saver. Was a last minute gig for him but he cane 150% through. Learned three new songs in hours for my planned surprise for my husband. He was just the best surprise not only for my husband but for me. Was a great pleasure to meet David and see him perform by himself and with my husband. Will be booking him again. A must hire for any event.
David is a great artist to have at your party! I hired him for my corporate event, and he kept the party going with fun music all night long! He made the atmosphere of the party more lively and happy. He was also very professional, and very easy to work with!
David was perfect for our house party. Very flexible and even played longer than originally scheduled. Great catalog of music and good with song requests. I would definitely recommend David and would have him play again. Thanks.
David was professional, happy, showed emotion for us on our wedding day, and even changed up the set list last minute as we ran out of time. A total pro! Thank you David!
We had a crab feast for around seventy people. David was outstanding. He paid close attention making sure that he did not disturb the conversations going on and yet loud enough to be heard. Everyone loved the music which seemed to fit listeners who come from all different walks of life with many different tastes in music. He was a big hit at our party.
David performed at our four-year-old's birthday party and we could not have been happier with his performance. Not only was he a polished professional with smooth vocals, but he was also so pleasant and accommodating throughout the entire process.
He provided us a song list in advance that gave us hundreds of songs to choose from, and he gave us the option to select songs in advance or collect on-the-spot requests at the party. Because his performance was sort of a gift to our son in itself, we helped select the song list in advance, and chose our son's favorites. Even though our son enjoys a number of classic rock hits, we wanted to also cater to the greater audience and David suggested a handful of kids songs he could weave into the set. He even learned Wheels on the Bus at our son's request. He also learned Get Off of My Cloud at my son's request (and yes, we realize this is your atypical request combo).
David could not have been a more perfect fit for the party. David confessed to being new to this age group, but he was a natural and the kids adored the live concert he played. And, because he wasn't your typical kiddie performer, he was far more tolerable to the adult guests (particularly our au pair who instantly developed a crush when he started his first song).
We only have great things to say about David and would hire him again in an heartbeat. We had a number of guests also asking about him, so it looks like we'll be fighting our friends for his service in the future! If you're looking for a seasoned performer who has a spectacular singer-songwriter-style voice, expansive experience on the guitar, and is just a nice all-around guy, you will not disappointed by reaching out to David.
What to Expect
This really depends on what's needed at each particular venue/event. David always makes an effort to try and fit with the flow/feel wherever he's playing. Some performances, like many wedding ceremonies and cocktail hours he's performed, require a more intimate, laid back type of performance, sometimes as background music. Others, like bars and clubs, tend to need something more driving, upbeat, and "up front," so people can dance. He can provide both of these, or something in between even, depending on the circumstances and what's desired.
After studying music composition and performance at Salisbury University, David migrated from the small-town atmosphere of his youth on the Eastern Shore of Maryland to the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area, where he has since been playing music for a living. He now performs regularly along the mid-Atlantic region of the US, occasionally touring in other parts of the country as well. In the process, he has developed a strong fan base and attracted attention from many well-known names in the music industry and beyond, from Performing Songwriter magazine to Dean Dinning of Toad the Wet Sprocket to Ben Stein.
With his addictive melodies, a soulful vocal style and an off-the-beaten-path kind of pop-sensibility, David is steadily becoming a well-known performer on the East Coast. He has shared the stage with/opened for an eclectic mix of acts both solo and with his full band, including Maroon 5, Toby Keith, Owl City, Journey, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bad Company, Night Ranger, My Chemical Romance, The Used, Thrice, Story of the Year, The Bouncing Souls, Eric Hutchinson, Graham Colton and Virginia Coalition. He has also been a featured act for the Washington Redskins, Washington Nationals and the Citi Open (formerly the Legg Mason Tennis Classic).
Additional Booking Notes
David is able to provide all the production (lights, staging, sound, etc), but if some or all of that is provided, that works as well. The specifics would depend on whether he's being hired as a solo performer or with the duo, trio, or 4-piece band. He's pretty flexible and easy to work with in this area, and this can be discussed depending on the scenario. Feel free to inquire about more specifics, though, if needed.

*Full song list of about 500 songs available upon request. David also passes out this list at solo and duo performances for people to make song requests, when appropriate.
Influences & Inspiration
When playing covers with the band, one could say they add a slight '90s tinge to everything. Where original music is concerned, some of David's biggest influences are Radiohead, Smashing Pumpkins, The Beatles, Nirvana, Tool, Incubus and many other '90s groups.
Access to power
Preferably a tent/cover of some sort for outdoor performances
