© 2018 Dave Porter Band. Roanoke, Virginia


At the age of ten, Dave could be found on the floor of his bedroom, strumming an acoustic guitar to his brothers' hand-me-down Beatles albums. During high school he discovered jazz, began playing drums, adopted the upright bass and began making plans for a career in music.  

Soon after high school, Dave left Virginia to tour with many successful bands, including southern rock legend, Eddie Stone of Doc Holliday. After years on the road, home called, and returning to Southwest Virginia, he focused his musical talents on local bands and recording dozens of CDs as a first-call session musician, including his own releases "Desire" and "Fallen Angel". 

As a multi-instrumentalist, Dave uses live loops and his own pre-recorded rhythm tracks to create an eclectic mix of soul, blues, pop and original music. Be sure to check out the free downloads from his digital release "Under the Covers".
