Dave Dale has spent most of his entertainment career in Johannesburg, but has now decided to make Cape Town his home.
Dave’s musical journey started in Manchester, England where he was born, playing drums at local pubs and social clubs with local pop groups. His first major success was playing drums in the backing band for the “Ivy league” at night clubs through out the U. K. ( Their major hit record was “Tossing and turning”) Dave then moved on to an internationally acclaimed act “The Garden Oddysey” who played at high profile venues world wide, also doing radio and television work with this act.
As one of the founding members of the well-known band “Copperfield” he moved to South Africa recording two albums, off which came the hits “So You Win Again and Rock n Roll Singer”. He also did radio and television work with this band.
A major change from drums to guitar and lead vocals came next, at first playing solo and then with a variety of duos, playing at major hotels in S.A. such as “Southern Suns and Holiday Inns”. Dave has also played for the Hilton hotel group in the Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi and Dubai and Egypt on the Sinai Peninsula. He has also worked in Swaziland, Botswana, Namibia and Zimbabwe.
Dave Dale is now a very successful Solo artist. His repertoire spans a variety of music from the 60's through to the 2000's including easy listening background all the way to party/danceable pop and rock n roll. He also has an acoustic act which is just vocals and acoustic guitar for those venues requiring it.
Whether its a restaurant, bar, party, wedding or function, Dave Dale will entertain you with superb professionalism and talent.
