Music and Disc-Jockey time period 1975 to June 2004
David was a pioneer in the mobile DJ industry. In New York in 1975, as a guitarist in his own Chicago style band called Park Avenue, found that between sets when the band stopped playing to take breaks and played a tape, the audience lost the upbeat mood established by the band prior to the break. He then plugged two 8-track players into his guitar amplifier and tailored the music to the audience. Although not getting much rest on those breaks, he soon found that the audience loved to hear the original songs played back to back in an "live mixed" way. Soon after assembling a state of the art console system he was firmly established as a mobile Disc Jockey.
