Dave Mac Nab has been performing and composing music for over twenty five years. Born in New York, raised in Los Angeles, he has been living in the San Francisco Bay area for almost twenty years, drawing inspiration from the abundance of creative talent and the area's natural beauty. Dave has worked with many fine musicians from the Bay Area and beyond, in a wide range of settings and styles. While he's well versed in the language of jazz, his playing equally draws from rock, funk, latin, and blues influences, creating a soulful, intelligent sound driven by a strong rhythmic force.

Dave has toured and recorded internationally, appeared on numerous TV and radio programs and has recently been performing with some of Broadways’ biggest national tours. He has released four albums as a leader, played on countless other recordings, created original scores for theater and film and written instructional material for magazines and books.
