David Kav: Checkpoint

Des Moines Downtown Farmers Market THIS SATURDAY (Aug. 19th, 2017) - August 18, 2017

Hello again!

Just a quick note: I'll be playing at the Farmers Market TOMORROW (Saturday, August 19th, 2017) from 7am to noon!  I'll be at the corner of Court Ave and 3rd St (right across the street from Legends!)  It'd be great to see you there!  

The weather should be perfect.  Sunny skies (a few clouds) and in the upper 80s.  New songs?  Maybe.  Won't know unless you stop by, right?  :p

See you there!

Peace, love, music, light, art,

David Kav

THANK YOU Best Buddies Iowa and to Mickey's Irish Pub!!! - August 14, 2017

Hello again, you!

I'd be remiss if I did not mention as to how much fun I had playing for a great cause and for wonderful people at Mickey's Irish Pub this past Sunday!  Thank you ALL so much to those who came out to support a great organization (for those who were not there, you truly missed out!)  I have to give huge shout-outs to Blake Campbell (President of Best Buddies Iowa and a fantastic gentleman,) and to Mollie McCollum.  Without Mollie's grace and help, I would never have been introduced to and have had the opportunity to meet these great people and to play for them.  Blake and Mollie, thank you SO MUCH for a wonderful time!

Best Buddies Iowa was also recently featured on KCCI news for their "Bikes For Buddies" event.  They also raised $13,000 for this event alone!  I am SO PROUD of them!  Yes, this is a great amount that has been raised.  However, Best Buddies Iowa has a LONG way to go before they become a household name.  

Want more information and/or would like to help them out?  Please visit in order to gain access to their page.  They are also on Facebook as well:

Really looking forward to (hopefully) doing more events for this group in the future.  Thanks again, to Best Buddies Iowa, for the opportunity.  And, as always, thank you for YOUR support!

Peace, love, music, light, art

Playing for Best Buddies Iowa at Mickey's Irish Pub in Waukee, IA on Sunday, August 13th! - July 11, 2017

Hello, all you musical brothers and sisters (old and new!)

Yes, yes, I know.  LONG time!  However, you know it's not like me to post just "anything" here.  (Some say that I should.  Nonetheless...)

I met with Blake Campbell yesterday about this gig.  He is the State Director for Best Buddies Iowa.  Really great guy who is running a really cool organization.  Best Buddies Iowa partners up youth volunteers with other children of the same age group with learning disabilities which  includes, but is not limited to, people with Down syndrome, autism, Fragile X, Williams syndrome, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury and other undiagnosed disabilities.  

I am honored to be the musical guest to help fundraise such a noble cause as stated up above.  I'll be playing at the "home stretch" of the 26-mile Bike Ride (if you will) from 2pm to 4pm on Sunday, August 13th, 2017 at Mickey's Irish Pub in Waukee, IA!  Tickets for the Bike Ride are $35 if you would like to participate.  There will also be a raffle and prizes that can be won.  

More details can be found at their site.  I'm including the link to the Bike for Buddies page:

Check out more about their mission statement, all of the wonderful help that they have given thus far.  If you're intrigued (just like I am,) you can also hook up with them on Facebook as well:

As more details unfold about this event, I will be sure to update this page along with my FB page and Twitter account (which I need to blow the virtual dust bunnies off of.  HA!)  There may be radio and TV appearances about this wonderful cause.  Please stay tuned (as always!)

Good to see you again!  Take care and I will see you at the show!

All my best,

David Kav
