The David Luning Band

Just when we began to worry again about who is going to pick up the slack, as so many of the Folk/Americana greats start really slowing down or just saying goodbye: some young whippersnapper shows up saying, "If you just give me room to wail, I will show you the music will live on.  Welcome David Luning, with the full band, back to Musica Del Rio to remind us of how the music will continue.

A Sonoma County based singer/songwriter, David is part of the new generation of indie musicians who blur the genre lines of Americana/Alternative  County, Folk and Blues.  With insights beyond his years, David's story-telling songwriting and warm, rich voice captivates us and draws us into a musical world both familiar and new.  David Luning now takes us further down the trail, joining the likes of The Novelists, Salty Suites, and The Waydown Wonderers.

Returning with David will be Ben Dubin on upright bass.  Joining them for this visit will be the rest of David's full band, Dave Sampson on guitar and Linden Reed on percussion.

Across the country on Public Radio stations, like our own KCBX, David's debut album Just Drop on By was considered by many to be the "best Americana music album of the year".  The best comment came from Johnny Bazanno, with Bay Area NPR Station KRCB; "I've heard the future of Americana music and it's David Luning."  David writes, records and performs all of his original songs.  We will once again get David's picture of life in our living room.

In 2013 David auditioned for American Idol.  Over 75,00 artists auditioned that year and he made the cut.  18 million people world wide watched and listened to this new voice in folk music on American Idol in January 2014.  Keith Urban says, David presents "Staunch originality, no one's doing what you do...no none."

Join us on February 16th for our private audience with this amazing look at the future of acoustic music in America...The David Luning Band.
