WHAT WE DO
    


WE ARE AN ACOUSTIC / ELECTRIC
GUITAR & VOCAL DUO
WE LIKE TO DO AN ALL-REQUEST SHOW. AND JUST IN CASE YOU'RE HAVING TROUBLE DECIDING ON A SONG, OUR JUKE BOX SIGN WILL HELP TO JOG YOUR MEMORY. IT'S LOADED WITH 400 SONGS, AND IF YOURS ISN'T THERE, CHANCES ARE IT'S ONE OF THE MANY HUNDREDS OF OTHER SONGS WE KNOW. BALLADS, ROCK & ROLL, COUNTRY, FOLK, FUNNY SONGS, KIDS SONGS, SING-ALONGS.
   
WHETHER THE EVENT IS A CONCERT, PRIVATE PARTY, FESTIVAL, MARINA, RESTAURANT, BAR, OR SOMEBODY'S DECK, OUR 31 YEARS AS A DUO HAS GIVEN US THE EXPERIENCE TO INVOLVE OUR AUDIENCES IN OUR SHOWS IN A WAY THAT IS FUN FOR EVERYONE, AND BRINGS THEM BACK YEAR AFTER YEAR.
    
BACK IN 1986, WHEN WE WERE PLAYING FULL TIME FOR A LIVING, WE OFTEN HUNG OUT AT AT OUR BOND STREET COMPOUND IN FELLS POINT AT 3 OR 4 A.M. AFTER LOADING OUT FROM "THE HORSE", JUST MUSING ABOUT THAT DAY FAR OFF IN THE FUTURE WHEN WE WOULD BE OLD, AND STILL PLAYING GIGS. OF COURSE WE WERE THINKING LIKE 50 OR SOMETHING HAHA!
 
WE ARE CONSTANTLY IN AWE OF THE POWER OF MUSIC TO BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER, IN MANY CASES FOR ALL OF THESE 31 YEARS.


  
MIKE WHITE
MICHAELWHITEDDS.COM
                 


"SOUNDS LIKE A WHOLE BAND", "HUMAN JUKE BOX". "MIKE WHITE IS THE CONSUMMATE PROFESSIONAL PERFORMER". AND THAT'S JUST THE OBVIOUS...
   
MIKE IS A POWERFUL VOCALIST AND GUITARIST WHO SHOWS HIS PRESENCE AND WARMTH IN EVERY ASPECT OF HIS PERFORMANCE. HIS PERSONALITY INFUSES THE SHOW WITH A HOME-GROWN CLASSY STYLE THAT HAS BECOME LEGENDARY AMONG AUDIENCES AND MUSICIANS ALIKE.  MIKE IS ALSO A PROLIFIC SONG WRITER WITH A CD FULL OF ORIGINAL MATERIAL. HIS ENCYCLOPEDIC KNOWLEDGE OF SONGS AND LYRICS MAKES FOR A SHOW WITH INCREDIBLE DEPTH. MIKE DOESN'T JUST SING SONGS, HE MAKES THEM HIS OWN, WITH A STYLE THAT MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE IT COULD JUST AS EASILY HAVE BEEN HIM THAT MADE IT A HIT, WHETHER IT'S A SOFT JAMES TAYLOR BALLAD OR SOME ROCKIN' ROLLING STONES.
   
MIKE'S DRIVING RHYTHM GUITAR STYLE PROVIDES THE MUSIC WITH SOLID STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY. FROM "PRETTY PICKIN" TO "BULLDOZER MODE" MIKE CAN PRESENT A SONG WITH THE MOOD AND HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE THAT MAKES US LOVE THOSE TUNES SO MUCH.
   
FINALLY, MIKE'S MAGICAL ABILITY TO TALK TO AN AUDIENCE MAKES EVERYONE WHO LEAVES A MIKE & DAVE SHOW FEEL LIKE THEY MADE SOME NEW FRIENDS. THE SHOW IS REALLY MORE OF A CONVERSATION WITH THE AUDIENCE THAT JUST HAPPENS TO INVOLVE MUSIC.
   
AS ALWAYS, YOU CAN EXPECT A SMILE, A KIND WORD, A SHARED LAUGH AND AN HONEST NIGHT'S WORK FROM MIKE. THE RESPECT WE HAVE FOR EACH OTHER IS OBVIOUS AND CONTAGIOUS. THE MUSIC SPEAKS FOR ITSELF.
    
MIKE PLAYS TAYLOR, COLLINGS AND MARTIN GUITARS AND ONCE IN A WHILE, A COMPOSITE ACOUSTIC.

  
DAVE MATTHEISS
            


DIAMOND DAVE BEGAN PERFORMING 52 YEARS AGO IN 1965 (HE WAS 15) AT THE "CELLAR DOOR" IN GEORGETOWN. HIS ACOUSTIC GUITAR IS MAGICAL. FROM CLASSICAL TO PINK FLOYD, THE TASTY GUITAR LICKS ARE IN THERE, ALONG WITH RICH HARMONY VOCALS.
   
HIS MOST TREASURED GIFT IS THE ABILITY TO IMPROVISE UNDER PRESSURE AND MAKE UP SOLOS, FILLS AND HARMONIES AS HE GOES, EVEN ON UNFAMILIAR MATERIAL. ONE OF MY FAVORITE WAYS TO MESS WITH DAVE IS TO SPRING A BRAND NEW ORIGINAL SONG ON HIM DURING A SHOW, AND POINT OUT TO THE AUDIENCE THAT HE'S NEVER HEARD THE SONG BEFORE... HAHAHA. DAVE'S ABILITY TO FAKE ALMOST ANYTHING HAS ALSO BEEN RESPONSIBLE FOR AN UNUSUAL CAREER SIDE EFFECT! 31 YEARS WITHOUT THE NEED FOR REHEARSALS! JUST A PASSION FOR CHALLENGE. ONE OF MY MANY NICK - NAMES FOR DAVE IS "EAR F. HUTTON".
   
DAVE'S FIRST JOB WAS IN A MUSIC STORE (GOVANS MUSIC STUDIOS) WHICH OPENED IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD WHEN HE WAS 15. HIS JOB WAS TO SELL GUITARS. WHENEVER A CUSTOMER WAS INTERESTED IN A GUITAR, THE STORE OWNER, JOE NOTO, WOULD HAND DAVE A GUITAR AND JUST START RINGING UP THE SALE WHILE ACCOMPANIED BY A BLAZING VERSION OF 'CLASSICAL GAS' OR SOMETHING. WE STILL RUN INTO PEOPLE THAT BOUGHT GUITARS FROM HIM AND THEY STILL WONDER HOW HE MAKES IT LOOK SO EASY. DAVE DOESN'T TALK MUCH BUT HIS FINGERS DO.
  
HE ONCE SAID THIS THOUGH... "THE MOST ENJOYABLE ASPECT OF OUR JOB HAS TO DO WITH THE FACT THAT WE'RE AS DIFFERENT AS NIGHT & DAY REGARDING OUR INDIVIDUAL CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE EFFORT. WE PRODUCE A SHOW WHICH CELEBRATES THOSE DIFFERENCES AND THAT RESULTS IN A SOUND WITH DEPTH." ROGER THAT, DIAMOND DAVE.
  
DAVE PLAYS MATON, FENDER, GIBSON & MARTIN GUITARS.
