The Dave Steffen Band has been through many changes throughout the years and as always DSB has put out an excellent CD. “Find a Groove” has many great songs that after hearing them you’ll be singing them over and over.

Dave is a seasoned musician who will tell you that he has played with and opened for many great musicians, i.e., Robin Trower, Davey Pattison, Ronnie Montrose, and members of Journey to name a few; throughout his career. And his fans will say that Dave is the great musician. The Dave Steffen Band appeals to all ages and musical tastes.

While working on this project he had a drummer transition and he incorporated the best of both great musical talents of Brian Augustine and Spencer Ponish on this collaboration. And as always his bass player, Craig Neuser, is an important part of the backbone of this band today.

The vocals on this CD are so true to Dave’s sound; it’s like he is right there in the room with you. Mark Golde of Rock Garden Studios in Appleton, Wisconsin has done a great job on engineering and was able to capture Dave’s sound and what Dave “heard in his head”. On this CD Dave chose to do his own background vocals with superb results as he knows what he wants his musical creations to sound like. Dave usually uses his faithful lady, his late 60’s Fender Stratocaster but on this project stepped out of his comfort zone and also used a 72 Les Paul and his old Gibson acoustic on some of the songs creating a sweet balance.

“Find A Groove” CD opens with soaring electric guitars followed by heavy rock shuffles, onto songs filled with melody, soul and lyrics ranging from romantic to philosophical. You’ll hear Dave’s signature soulful slide guitar and rockin’ old blues Gibson acoustic topped with harmonica and some ocean sounds. Just take a listen and Find your Groove.
