Hi if you are looking to book me, or one of the bands I play in, read on:

I've been playing the guitar and other fretted instruments for over 50 years now! Over that time I've got familiar with a wide range of styles, from rock and pop to jazz and RnB, from folk to funk, blues to soul etc., etc.

I play a range of music in a variety of settings from solo guitar to duos, trios, right up to nine piece bands. I've worked with a lot of different artists and musicians, mostly not famous (though there were a few household names..) but great musicians all the same.

Some current live music projects I'm involved in:

(See the Projects page for more info, audio clips etc.,)
  • Solo guitar playing mainly jazz and light background music for weddings, functions, events etc. 
  • Duology - Jazz funk & Latin guitar and bass duo.  Original tunes and old favourites. Great for restaurants, wedding receptions, events BBQs, house parties and coffee bars! More info at:
  • Dave Bold Duo - guitar and singer (usually Chess Payne or Gordon Webber), mostly jazzy songs or pop/rock standards. Great for restaurants, wedding receptions, corporate events and small pub gigs.
  • Road Runners - Soul Band, an 8 or 9 piece band with horn section, playing all the classic soul, disco and funk tunes. Everybody's favourite; great for parties, functions and corporate events. Look out for us at annual public gigs at the London Marathon 6 Mile Mark (Greenwich) and London Ride events. More info at:
  • Bold's Band - a Ceildh band for Barn Dances, Scottish, Irish, English, Celtic nights. Great fun, ideal for functions, weddings, events, festivals.

To book, or just for a chat about what event you have in mind, contact me with dates and some idea of venue and your budget. Full details, including pricing, lists of tunes, are available on request (it's a long list, takes up too much space here!). 07905 859 416 /

Note: if I can't do the date you are looking for... it may well be that I know another band or musicians that can.  Give me a call and let's make it happen!
