Biography: Dave Barton
Been There And Done That!
He's opened for The Beach Boys, 38 Special, Dave Matthews, Peter Frampton, Joan Jett, Kansas, Marshall Tucker Band, Atlanta Rhythm Section, and many others!
Dave got his start playing bars at 16 on a fake ID and his journey to becoming a full-time performer has been chock-full of many great adventures to say the least. Like the time he opened for The Beach Boys...who was backstage checking him out? The guys from America, who happened to be hanging out. Talk about jitters! To have performed full-time for over 15 years is a feat matched by only the best entertainers in the Mid-Atlantic region.
Dave Barton has performed for presidential candidates, corporate groups, and anywhere great acoustic music is welcome. As a member of Attraction (formerly known as BS&M - he was the B), Dave has performed from New York to Puerto Rico to France and played well over a 1,200 gigs.
He's performed for Hillary Clinton, Richard Dailey (mayor of Chicago), and countless other political personalities (Ollie North). He is also a former full-time performer with Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, VA. and Music Education major (cum laude) from Virginia Commonwealth.
It's about having a GREAT time!
Variety is the key. Dave takes requests, does impersonations, and plays everything from Jimmy Buffett to Dave Matthews with ease. He carries a state of the art sound system and maintains an ever-growing mailing list. You'll notice a strong commitment to detail from beginning to end and a flair for spontaneity. Everybody in the room must have a blast. The ticket is variety, entertainment, and a smile, says Dave!
