    I have worked with Dave on many projects over the past 10 years! He is so professional and very good at what he does. His talents are more than just his bass playing, he brings so many creative ideas to the table and is also an amazing arranger. Dave arranged a string quartet for one of my projects and it is exquisite! A truly talented guy, super friendly and great to work with!
