Dave Rowley

Dave has been in the Grand Valley almost his entire life. He began playing the upright bass in the school orchestra as a sixth grader and continued through high school. It wasn’t until a few years after graduating that he joined his first local band, Dem Bones. Since then he has been hopping from band to band, being a part of as many as three groups at one time, ranging from ragtime to alternative rock. Having played music all over the Grand Valley, Northwest, and part of the Eastern US, he holds true to a driving principle, “Playing music with others affords an opportunity to learn from and communicate with them unlike any other.”
