Duane began playing guitar at the age of 17 and formed his first band in 1985.  He pursued classical studies at Vandercook College of Music in Chicago but quit due to lack of funds for tuition.  He played in countless bands in the Chicagoland area in the late 80's and early 90's.  He released one solo album on the Shakin' Bacon Records label but after the passing of his music sidekick and best friend, he was devestated to the point of selling all his instruments and gear, vowing to never play again.  20+ years later he now finds himself playing and singing in The Region Rhythm Kings.  #NeverSayNever

From his first band, formed in 1976, Dave has spent his time rockin' the region in many different band incarnations. After some radio success with his song "I've got my eye on you from across the room" in 1979, Dave has since been writing music and playing in bands from heavy metal to pop to blues. Finally settling down in the genre that first inspired him, Dave found a home in the blues. He rounds out the Region Rhythm Kings sound with guitar and keyboards.
