Oct 11:

Last week was a tough one. I found myself wanting to hug and comfort my LA/OC survivors of the Route 91 shooting, but I had to hit the road and play in a new town. Guess what? I found the same pain and, stranglely, comfort in being around survivors in that new town. It was hard to keep smiling amidst the occassional tears, but it was important to do our part and to continue without fear... needless to say, we made some new friends up in Lone Pine, CA.

Speaking of doing our part, Sunday Oct 22 I'll be on the lineup of a great charity concert in our San Fernando/Conejo Valley area for local families affected by the Route 91 festival shooting with great local bands. Click the image below to purchase tickets or donate:

Country Strong Benefit Concert at Borderline


Oct 3:

A note from Dave: In light of the tragic event in Las Vegas Sunday night that affected many members of our country family (not to mention the news of Tom Petty's passing on Monday), I thought long and hard whether I should even PLAY music this week, let alone still do Wednesday's planned Pearl Snap Shirt Exchange.
Then I realized, we need this. Country music folks are a family, and we need to support our family. We do this by playing music together, supporting those who wish to play, and giving them the shirt off our backs to do it (or, the shirts out of our closets). So we continue, for better or worse.


October 4th, 2017 is our first ever Pearl Snap Shirt Exchange. We're bringing a rack, you bring us a fancy stage shirt or two that you don't use or fit in anymore, and we'll find it a good home! See something you like? Take it home! It's a great way to find some cool stage duds, and hang out with a few country music studs as well! Ladies shirts welcome, too! Email us for more details... bring some clothes hangars, too!

10-4 at Maui Sugar Mill Saloon

It's our Inaugural Holiday Instrument Drive!


Just Dave Band is teaming up with the Fender Music Foundation ( to bring guitars, instruments and accessories to over 50 school programs and students in the Los Angeles Area. Please make plans to attend 1 or our 4 local shows, where we plan to "Fill up Dave's truck" with all sorts of instruments for kids in need. My first harmonica was a gift many years ago, so this cause is very near and dear to my heart.
