Dave Hart

Classically trained pianist before the age of ten, Dave had his first synthesizer by the age of 12 and began performing professionally at age 16. He went on to Study Electronic and Computer Music at the SDSU Electronic Music Studio with emphasis on Subtractive Synthesis and Multi-Sampling. He considers his main influences to be in the area of 70’s prog-rock (Styx, Kansas, ELO, Pink Floyd) as well as rock pianists Elton John, Billy Joel, Billy Powell and Freddie Mercury. On stage, Dave recreates the sounds of original arena rock music using both modern “workstation” keyboards and vintage analog and digital keyboards.
