Hitting Des Moines HARD with radio interviews, shows and more shows! - May 2, 2018

Hi there hi there hi there!

So, it's been a FUN time with Classical Blast.  I tell you that they are now in good hands with their new front woman, Sophie Monroy.  I wish them all the best and will see them soon!

And now, the next chapter begins...

It begins with another appearance on the Morning Show with Jamie and Sarah this FRIDAY MORNING at 8am on Energy 106.7FM at 8am!  I'll be talking about the upcoming weekends shows, play a couple of tunes and have some fun fun fun!  You can join us at the link here and click on the Energy 106.7FM link there:

Later that evening (Friday, May 4th,) I'll be playing at the Twisted Vine in West Des Moines (3320 Westown Parkway, West Des Moines, IA 50266) along with my good friend and special guest, Kevin Lindgren from 6 to 9pm.  Since it IS Star Wars day, there will be some people in costume (maybe us?  We'll see…)  Good times WILL be had!

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. Haha.)  Fun weekend ahead...

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!  

As always, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!  See you at the show!

Peace, love, music, laughter, life, art forever!

LAST Classical Blast shows (for me,) a hint at the future of David Kav music.... - April 13, 2018

Holy Lateness, Batman!!  YIKES!

So, umm, a LOT of changes are happening.  But, more on that later...

TONIGHT (Friday, April 13th:)

Pheasant Run Resort
4051 E Main St.
St. Charles, IL. 60174

TIME: 9:30pm to 12:30am

The quartet consists of:  Petar Kecenovici on Cello, Jimmy Chaos on Violin, their brand-new frontwoman Sophie Monroy on guitar and vocals and...yours truly as their Special Guest.

777 Blue Chip Drive
Michigan City, IN. 46360
Showtime: 1:30pm to 5:30pm
FULL BAND with me as Special Guest

For everyone saying that Classical Blast is not the same without is NOT supposed to be the same.  In fact (and I'm saying this with every fiber of my being,) Classical Blast 4.0 (Sophie Monroy is the fourth Lead Vocalist in the history of the group) will flourish and SURPASS where they have gone.  Don't get me wrong:  Classical Blast was one of the BEST MUSICAL RIDES OF MY LIFE!  They have helped me grow so much...and I will always be indebted to them.  Always.

For the future of my music?  Well, let's just say that I have recently acquired some new recording equipment since my laptop died.  Almost together there...  AND - I will announce a new project very soon.  Can't say too much now since it is very much in its infancy.  But, it is cropping to the surface.  STAY TUNED HERE, at my Facebook page ( on Twitter (well, not so much there...but if you want: and on Instagram (@davidkavmusic) for the latest news.  When it is ready, I WILL let you know.  (Oh, and definitely a brand-new original to be released in 2018!)

One last thing, I will be back in Des Moines for some shows, radio dates, Farmers Markets, etc.  I will be all over the Midwest this year (in a way.)  THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for your neverending support.  Now and always!

See you at the show!

Peace, love, music, laughter, life, art now and forever...
