Since September of 2009 I have played over 180 shows with Rock Out Karaoke. That’s probably around 7,200 songs and just as many high fives. Counting all the duets, drunken groups of bridesmaids, and dancing bananas, I’ve been lucky enough to share the stage with possibly close to 10,000 karaoke singers (with just a few repeats and regulars) in the past two and a half years.
I want to thank all the musicians that I have played with in ROK over the years: Skip, Rob R., Mike, Rob W, Matt, Pants, Shawn, Paulo, and Colin. You guys are awesome and make playing music what it’s supposed to be…Fun!
Equally important, I want to thank all the wonderful people that brave the Rock Out Karaoke stage every week. Without you, we’re just another cover band. My favorite day of the week without a doubt is Thursday because I get to share the stage with you all. I will miss you all dearly. Keep on ROK’ing!
My last official show is March 15th, but watch out for some special guest appearances in April!
Editor’s Note: We’ll definitely miss Dancing Dave’s stage antics week after week. Dave’s arrival in the band came at a pivotal time, as Bass Rob was busy having kids. Dave was undoubtedly a huge reason why we were able to continue performing week after week — and even growing the number of gigs we play each year. Dave was literally the backbone of the band, shouldering the majority of the load with a smile (and usually a PBR or two). Most of all, Dave is an incredible friend to all of us. We all wish you the best and hope to share the stage with you again soon.
