Alright, I figured some of you might want to know a little more about the proprietor of the Blue Martini Lounge, so I figured I'd oblige you. So, here goes. My name is David, as you can see from above, and I'm a college senior at Coe College which is a small liberal arts school in Cedar Rapids, IA, USA. I'm studying voice, and have no idea what I want to do when I get out of school. I know that I want to perform, but I've flip flopped so many times that I just don't know in what arena I want to perform.
Right now, I think that I really want to be in a Ska Band. I'm a complete RudeBoy, and would love to be the lead vocalist for a ska band. I'm totally into ska, and have been for about 2 years now. I just love the mesh of horns and guitar. My favorite band is the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, and although I've never seen them live (very unfortunately) they are from all indications that I've gotten, the best live band ever. Some other bands I like are Reel Big Fish, Goldfinger, VooDoo Glow Skulls, (Gfinger and Skulls whom I've seen in concert together) and the swing bands Big Bad VooDoo Daddy, Squirrel Nut Zippers, and the Cherry Poppin' Daddies.
Another thing that I'm huge into is Star Wars. Awwwww yeahhhhhh, May 21, 1999 is the date that I'm waiting for. For those of you who are uninformed as to the ways of the Star Wars galaxy, that's when the first movie of the new trilogy comes out.
I'm also a fan of professional wrestling. My favorite organization is WCW, and of course, my second favorite is the WWF. My favorite wrestler is Sting (go Wolfpac), and he is going to beat the tar out of that no good backstabbing Bret Hart. I digress. I also write poetry.
These are some of the places on the web that have made an impact on me.
