Dave Clarke


Band: Alvin Stardust


Midlands UK


Here you go mate..
Based in the midlands UK.

Playing Bass for over 20 years I come from a diverse (to say the least) musical background. Immersed in the sounds from the likes of James Brown, Level 42, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stevie Wonder, The Police, Jamiroquai, Queen, Weather Report, Frank Zappa, E.W.F, Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke, Living Colour, Funkadelic, Jeff Buckley, Bootsy Collins, Bob Marley, Parliament, Prince, Santana, Pearl Jam, Miles Davis and many more Funk, Rock, Latin, Reggae, etc bands/artists, I knew Bass was the way I wanted to go.

Playing with the Alvin Stardust band for nearly 4 years, I have also played with artists such as Sarangi player, composer, fusion pioneer Surinder Sandhu (recorded 2 Albums 'Cycles & Stories' & 'The Fictionist'), Midlands blues-rock band 'Hangman' (opened up for acts such as Brian May and Whitesnake), to gigs with 'Taz' (Asian pop band 'Stereo Nation') to mention only a few.

Also my website is www.daveclarkebass.co.uk or dcbass.co.uk
Will be ready in a few weeks so if you could put that on my blog that would be great.Also I have a YouTube channel..deezbar where I am playing a lot of my old lefties that include my old Wal,Zon,a few Sandbergs etc.D
