About David Berg

David’s propensity to affect the time/space continuum with a guitar has led him to some very interesting places. Early in his career, he held a job serenading lions in a zoo. He went on to share the stage with lions of a different sort: Bob Weir, Jaco Pastorius, Paul Butterfield, Cyril Neville, Ivan Neville, Melvin Seals, Leo Nocentelli, David Murray, Earl “Chinna” Smith, Vassar Clements, Buddy Cage, Tom Constanten, Vince Welnick, Henry Butler,Tony Trischka- the list goes on. He’s performed, recorded and toured with members of the Grateful Dead, Jane’s Addiction, Hot Tuna, Tower Of Power, The Wailers, Neville Brothers, Meters, Tito Puente Orchestra, Zero, Furthur, and Dark Star Orchestra.

David’s CD Sunflower Sky features a solid supporting cast of locally-grown NY musicians: Amy Peters, Chris Crosby, Jason Crosby (Robert Randolph and the Family Band), Dave Diamond and Wendy Lanter (Zen Tricksters, Donna Godchaux) and many others. The songs draw from a diverse musical palette incorporating elements of funk, jazz, latin, roots Americana, and jamband styles. The resulting fusion contains organic synergy which is propelled by the stellar performances of the players.

David performed with Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead, Garth Hudson of The Band, and Charles Neville (of The Neville Brothers). He also recorded with Roots Revelators, Gent Treadly and Wendy Lanter. In addition, he’s been performing in a variety of projects including Box of Rain, Circus Mind, dNa, and Rusty String Band.
