Dave started playing piano at the age of five – he played in his first professional band when he was 15 and never looked back. Since then he’s played with several Bay Area bands, including Pop Nation, Addison Street and the Raving Daves, who won the Battle Of The Bands at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Dave was born and raised in the music industry – his parents owned and ran a chain of music stores in the Bay Area (Reik Music). He has also owned and managed his own recording studio. He studied with Tom Coster of Santana and other great keyboard players during his musical career.
