Leicester Wedding Band The Jackpots Biography Dave


Dave - Lead Vocals & Guitar


Dave started playing in bands at the tender age of 12 as a lead vocalist and guitarist. Since then he has performed in several signed independent bands and played tours all over the UK and Europe. For Dave, Rock ‘n’ Roll is where it all started: listening and playing along to his Dad's amazing record collection. He says, "Singing and playing guitar in The Jackpots is a culmination of years of hard work and dedication to this wonderful genre of music. The biggest kick about this band is seeing an audience go mad and dancing their socks off to arguably, the best era of dance music ever!" The number 1 priority as a front man is to make sure everybody in the room is having a great time and enjoying something unique and special.
