  1. Review by Björn Werra

    Dave's is a fanatstic drummer. Highly energetic, a very (!) funky groove and full of inspiring ideas! I have been working with him on many projects during the last years and it always has been of the highest pleasure! He's easy to work with and a very sweet person. I was lucky enough to be a part of his current album and I am looking forward to many more projects with him in the future!

  2. Review by Gerhard Schmitt

    I have shared the stage with David for over 15 years now, playing the Blue Man Group show in Berlin and on tour, and I'm still overwhelmed by the positive energy David spreads, every time I play with him, from the first count in until the bows at the end of the show. He has also played on four tracks of my latest album production "TAGEBUCH - Anders Immer Anders" and I can only recommend him, as he's one of the greatest, and most versatile drummers I know on this plant. Go get him !

  3. Review by Friedrich Stoermer

    Dave is a worldclass drummer and a outstanding composer. I would always want him to be in my project because he brings his huge talent and his great personality to the table. Love him!
