Dave’s Bio
Whether sipping Mai Tais on the beach or drinking beers at your local bar you have probably heard local musicians strumming away on a ukulele or guitar making pleasant background music. This is where Dave DePonte differs from your local musicians. Dave brings passion and humor to his songs. It is not uncommon to hear him play Over the Rainbow and then immediately launch into Iron Maiden’s The Trooper. This blend of song and humor make his shows rewarding and entertaining for audiences of all ages. DePonte’s family hails from Maui’s infamous Upcountry. As a first generation mainlander he has a unique perspective on the island way of life. This style brings an unpredictable element to his shows. The one thing you know when you see Dave DePonte is that you just don’t know which direction the show will go. So the next time you’re in your local Brewery, pub, or bar and you hear your local musician playing Barry Manilow then jumping right into a Black Sabbath tune, you’ll know you have found Dave DePonte.
