Dave Haywood grew up in Wayne New Jersey, 20 miles outside of Manhattan. His 2 older brothers had a basement studio where teenage Dave learned his way around multiple instruments and experimented with songwriting and recording. In the 90s, he began performing in the NYC club circuit at legendary venues like The Bottom Line and the Cafe Wha?. In 1997, he performed the first of many appearances with Les Paul at the Iridium Jazz Club while establishing a reputation as a coveted session player in the tri-state area. His work on a few of those recordings led to several European tours in the following years. In 2001, Dave moved to the Jersey shore and quickly established himself as the top guitarist/vocalist entertainer at marquee clubs up and down the shoreline. His aggressive, 'take no prisoners' performance style caught the attention of Jon Bon Jovi who jumped onstage with Dave for an impromptu jam. This led to many public and private shows with and for the Bongiovani family and their Jersey shore friends. He moved to the South Florida music scene in 2005 initially contracted to work the Miami/Lauderdale/Palm Beach circuit but wound up touring the southern US, the Caribbean islands and South America. Following a 2009 performance at the Spectrum Arena, he relocated his family to Charlotte, NC where he met John 'Woody' Woodward. The two began performing as an acoustic duo and also formed a club/corporate/wedding band named The Fifth Divine. Dave also began performing regularly as a dueling pianist at the 2 biggest piano clubs in the country; Bobby Mckeys in DC and PLUS in Raleigh, NC. He currently averages 300 performances a year showcasing guitar and piano performances throughout the Carolinas, the DC area and up to NYC.‘Dave slings a bad ass guitar.’ - Billy Gibbons
