It’s been quite an adventure working with Dave Eggar over the years. Dave is one of those artists that you have to hear/see to believe... It’s been fun watching people attempt to categorize and understand the breadth of Dave’s experience and ability. I’ve known him for a long time, and he still continues to pull new tricks from his sleeves. Dave Eggar’s passion and commitment to his music and his legacy is tremendously inspiring. His work ethic is unparalleled.
Here’s just a few of my favorite moments selected from over the years, and here’s to many more! Thank you, Dave!! @cellogram99 ///// 1.
