About me...

I started playing guitar at the age of 13 and formed a group with friends at School. I have maintained my interest in playing guitar and have performed with a variety of bands right up to the present day. I am a Music Industry professional having spent my working career in the music equipment sector, so expect some quality name dropping during the talk!

The Semi-Pro Sixties

The Semi-Pro Sixties is a talk based on my book of the same name. Covering a period from 1961 to 1976 I take my audience back to the time when budding musicians were forming groups and starting to play gigs in Youth Clubs, Pubs and Clubs. There’s plenty of laughs as I tell stories of the life and times of a semi professional musician setting out on the road for the first time. Drawing on my interviews with over fifty different musicians there are experiences from the outright funny to the downright dangerous!

These are real life experiences and illustrated with plenty of slides and pictures. Here’s what some of the audience thought;
Margaret D – “A wonderful talk and really funny”
Linda S – “Very enjoyable talk, funny & informative”
Angela B – “Very amusing and enjoyable trip down memory lane”
Barbara L – “A really interesting insight into the music world of the 60s “
Ken H – “A talk that invokes musical memories galore”


Testimonials & Reviews

‘David appeared at the Arts Centre Haverhill, he was very entertaining and we really enjoyed his talk. He mentioned a few pubs and clubs I remembered from my time of living in the east end of London and bought back some happy memories.
We hope to see him again next time.’
