Featured Artist:

Dave Roe, Bass

The mid '70's found bassist Dave Roe performing with the top Funk and horn bands, along with stints in a few highly acclaimed traditional Hawaiian bands such as The Beamer Brothers. By 1980, the thought of leaving Hawaii and moving to a music industry city was becoming the right thing to do.

Within a week of his arrival, he landed a gig with Country Music Hall of Famer Charlie Louvin on the Grand Ole Opry which led to his first high profile touring job with Guitar Great, Jerry Reed. This was followed by a long list of touring and recording credits with a Who's Who roster of Nashville Legends, including Chet Atkins, Mel Tillis and Vern Gosdin, along with subbing tours with such stars as Vince Gill, Faith Hill and Leroy Parnell.

Dave started a new life as a roots Upright Bass player in 1992 as Johnny Cash's touring and recording bassist until Johnny's eventual passing.

Now Dave's career has blossomed into the kind that most musicians only dream about, touring and recording with an "A" list of Roots Artists and musicians. He currently tours with Dwight Yoakam and lives and works in Nashville, Tn as one of the leading proponents of Hillbilly Slap Bass, as well as other styles of Pop, Rock and Country music. He backs this up with a solid foundation on Electric bass, adding his strong singing background whenever called upon to do so.

When not on the road or in the studio, he can be found performing at the legendary Robert's Western World in downtown Nashville, with The Don Kelly Band, the city's oldest and finest hardcore Honky-Tonk/ Hillbilly band.
