Playing at Downtown Des Moines Farmers Market AND Hy-Vee in Newton! - June 22, 2018

Hello, you beautiful person, you!

Happy Friday to you!  So, just dropping a quick line to let you know about my upcoming shows.  One last minute - one not-so-last minute:


Downtown Des Moines Farmers Market
(in front of Fong's Pizza)
Showtime: 7am to Noon
I'll have my lovely wife, Amanda Winter, join me on vocals for a good number of songs!
Come on out - support your local businesses, get some fresh veggies and fruit, drinks, music and FUN!

Also, this coming Thursday, I've been asked to return to play for the HY-VEE TAP TAKEOVER in Newton, IA (courtesy of my friend, Patrick Evans-Winfield.  Thanks, Patrick!!)

1501 1st Ave E.
NEWTON, IA. 50208
Showtime: 5:30pm to 7:30pm

Playing a mix of 60s-present cover songs as well as original tunes (old and new.)  Music, beer, food and fun!  

It'd be great to see you!

Other news:  I am just about to start working on a new EP.  There is a theme to the songs which I will delve into more details when it is closer to finished.  I may have other artists joining me on this project as well.

Chicago peeps - my new band is coming along quite well.  We played for some of our friends and it was well-received.  We are also looking into recording very soon (as in - this week!)  When the official launch happens, I WILL let you know about it.  

As always, stay tuned here - and THANK YOU for your continued support.   Be safe, have fun and don't lose yourself entirely, ok?  ;)

Peace, love, music, laughter, life, art and honesty,

David Kav

Next morning, Saturday, May 5th, I will be playing the OPENING weekend of the Downtown Des Moines Farmers Market from 7am to Noon at the corner of 3rd and Court Ave!  ALL tips are greatly appreciated.  I usually play this gig for 5 hours straight.  So, ANYTHING can happen.  Haha.   Come celebrate Cinco de Mayo with me (you know…since I'm so cultured.

For those in Chicago and Illinois, do NOT worry.  You WILL see me soon.  All I can tell you is this:  IF you follow me on Facebook and Instagram, you KNOW that my next band is starting to take shape.  I can NOT get into too many details now (and I REALLY REALLY want to!)  What I can tell you is - STAY TUNED.  ONCE the news gets dropped, you WILL know it.  It is JUST about to break through the surface from the underground.  I am SO EXCITED and I CAN NOT WAIT to share this with the world. It WILL be epic!
