For David Peers, it all started in 1976. While in the 6th grade,
a classmate who had grown tired of Daves infatuation with Barry Manilow, lent him a copy of Neil Diamonds Hot August Night.

picked up a guitar. It was a wonderful time.
Musical talent ran in the familys blood. Soon, everything in
Daves life revolved around Rock & Roll. In the years to come, Dave became quite an accomplished player in the Washington,
DC area music scene, eventually playing and touring the country with several different bands. Dave was always a strong vocalist,
