Steelin' with Friends


“Duckpin” Dave learned guitar and pedal steel guitar in a small town in NW Illinois in the late 1970s. He has been performing, touring and recording since 1981, getting his start with the US Army Band. Dave has shared the stage with LeAnn Rimes, Billy Strings, Jon Stickley Trio, Goo Goo Dolls, Band of Horses, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Lukas Nelson, Justin Townes Earle and many others, and he has performed at The Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, Mountain Stage, Philadelphia Folk Festival, All Good Festival, Winter Jazz and more.

Being someone who enjoys many styles of music and believes they are all connected, Dave creates a unique sound that can be heard on hundreds of recordings. Their genres range from bluegrass to indie rock, and he has also recorded pedal steel for TV commercials and video games.

Oh, and he also loves Duckpin Bowling!
