|In 2002, David joined the established vocal quartet Three Hits and a Miss, singing the lowest voice.|
David now lives and works in New York City but returns to Minnesota to lead and sing with his own 17-piece big band, The David Andrew's Big Band. His roles in New York City include the title role in "Lost Highway: The Hank Williams Story," which opened in June, 2007.
Before moving to New York City, David was a busy actor and singer in the Twin Cities. You may have seen him in the lead role of Burrs in "The Wild Party" at the Fitzgerald Theater. Among his other Minnesota performances are Theater Latte Da's productions of "A Christmas Carole Peterson" and "The Rink" and the role of El Gallo in "The Fantastiks" at the Jon Hassler Theater.
David has sung "I've Got a Gal in Kalamazoo" (with The Rosetones singing backup, reminiscent of Tex Beneke and The Modernaires), "Come Fly with Me," "It's Only a Paper Moon" (a duet with Sarah Wentworth), "Zoot Suit Riot,""Blue Spanish Eyes," and other selections with the Roseville Big Band at their performances at the Commemorative (formerly the Confederate) Air Force dances at Fleming Field in S. St. Paul.
David has performed with the North Star Opera and the Minnesota Opera and, with a small number of vocalists and pianist, performs very scaled down "living room operas" and cabaret-style pops concerts. He also leads and performs in combos, singing and playing trombone.
You might have also seen David performing as the vocalist and front man for The Funk Junkies, a horn band that performs everything from Aerosmith to ZZ Top, with Commodores, Stevie Wonder, and Blood, Sweat and Tears to fill it out.
In addition to touring with Three Hits and a Miss, David performed with Jodie Briskie and pianist Tom Linker in the touring concert program, "Music: The Language of Love."
