About Dave Crimmen
I am a Rock Artist from San Francisco Bay Area!
According to my older sisters, I’ve been doing this since I was just six months old! Inspired by the legends – Elvis Presley, Little Richard and Chuck Berry – I set out to emulate the feel good, rock out vibes that make hips shake and heads bop. I love my music. I write my music for the girls, the fans, and the fellow lovers of classic rock.
Our bread & butter is Rock ‘n Roll from the late 50’s to the early 80’s with original music and cover tunes. We generally play Rockabilly, Surf Rock, Doo-Wop and Classic Rock in our repertoire of over 1,000 songs. We’ve done hundreds and hundreds of gigs at bars, parties, and beyond. We’ve been booked for over 250 shows in 2015 alone and are looking forward to rocking out at your next event. Book the band!
Dave Crimmen – Vocals, Guitar, Songwriter.
Dave Crimmen is a Veteran West Coast Entertainer who has written and performed songs you may have heard in major motion pictures, like “The Game” (starring Michael Douglas and Sean Penn), and Network TV Shows like “Cold Case” (CBS-TV), “Dateline” (NBC-TV), and “Melrose Place” (Fox-TV).
Dave’s music is heavily influenced by Rock ‘n Roll from the 1950s and early 1960s and musical greats like Elvis Presley and Little Richard. Over the years, he has shared the stage with stars like Elvin Bishop, Greg Allman, James Cotton & Coco Taylor.
Dave’s original tracks have enjoyed much success. Just recently, Bill Haley’s Original Comets recorded a song that Dave wrote for their current CD. Three of Dave’s solo albums/CDs entered the Top 10 at College Radio on the CMJ NATIONAL Charts. Since 2021, he has also collaborated with three other writers/producers (The Love Avengers) to render several singles. Asked what inspires him, Dave laughed, “That’s pretty simple- GIRLS!”
His recent album/CD, “Big Daddy D,” features the Jordanaires on two tracks. The Jordanaires are well-known for singing backup for Elvis Presley & Ricky Nelson, among others. Recording with the guys he grew up listening to was a blessing and a dream come true for Dave.
An unexpected fact? Dave is also the author of two books published by Arcadia, “Images Of America Broadmoor Village, CA” & “Daly City Then & Now.”
A group of myself and three (3) other writers / producers got together and the Love Avengers. We have been putting out singles since 2021.
My musical style is based on Rock ’n Roll from the 1950’s and early 1960’s. I do venture into different musical styles but, basically, That’s what I do.
Recording with the Jordanaires on my digital single “Come On”. To record with the guys that I grew up listening to is a blessing and a dream come true.
