My name is Dave Roy I was born and raised in Washington D.C. I started playing the guitar at the age of 12 years old. My dad had started me out with a few chords and I just took it from there. I discovered that I had something special when I would be able to here a piece of music and then play it the way it was on the record. I had a talent and gift of being able to do this. At the age of 17 I went on my first tour. A short time later I went on my first world tour. By the age of 20 I had already played with national artist such as The True Reflections of Atlantic Records, Millie Jackson, Rufus Thomas, Denise LaSalle, and soon The Wilson Pickett Band, played with members of Paliment Funkadelic. My first professional band was Point Blank whom I went on my first tour with and then 2000 A.D. with whom I went on the world tour with. I have shared the stage with many national artist like, The Commadores, The Drifters, BB King, Clarence Carter and many other secular artist. I was also the music director for the Legendary Clovers (the group that did Love Potion#9). At age 32 I gave my heart to the Lord with him delivering me from a 15 year drug addiction and jail term. God has given me an awesome testimony. Some of the christian artists that I played with are The TL Lowery Singers, Authority, The Godd Squad, Dave Roy and Christian Kompany and have recorded with many others. I have played with the praise and worship bands at The National Church of God, Evangel Assembly, South Potomac Church, Family Life Victory Center and for the Rock Church Ministries and more. God has allowed me to be music director and music minister for some churches in the Maryland area. Iuse to play lead guitar for Chesapeake Church in Huntingtown Md. I use to play with Manoverboard a praise and worship team that reaches the old and the young, with traditional and the contemporary music at The Church of the Valley in Strasburg Va. I now work with Fresh Water Fellowship in Woodstock VA., Pastor Brian Patrick where I host a christian coffee house every Saturday where I have open mike and differrent groups on a regular basis. I have been Praise and Worship leader for South Potomac Church, Family Life Victory Center and substitute leader at Chesapeake Church in Huntingtown Md. I am now Praise and Worship leader at Antioch Christian Church in Vienna VA. Before this position I was doing praise and worship at different churches in the Shenandoah Valley mainly at What\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s New Church with Pastor Andy Combs. I love serving at Antioch Church with Pastor Randy Beeman. I also play with a Christian group called \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Lost and Found\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" and also doing solo work as well playing at different churches and christian concerts and festivals all around. In the fall of this year I will be doing The Walk to Emmaus a men\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s christian retreat where I will be the assistant music director. God placed a CD on my heart a few years ago but had been so busy playing for others and helping others with there projects and had put mine on hold. I have always been one to help others and get to me later. I finally obeyed the Lord and got this project done. It has been such a weight off of me since it has been completed. God has blessed me with a great bunch of guys to work with in completing this project. The talent is so unbelievable with the sounds of Melvin Miles on the keyboards, Cecil Issac on the drums, Sean Law on the 4,5, and 6 string basses, and Moses Holmes on the saxophone. This CD is a mixture of rock, blues, traditional, funk, ballads and instrumentals. There is something on this CD that would be pleasing to both young, middle aged and old alike. Give this CD a listen and purchase and be blessed.I am now working on a new project with the group SevenX where I am writing most of the music for this project. God is truly doing some wonderful things in my life. May God Bless You. If you like you can purchase a CD with Dave Roy and Christian Kompany you can go to

I really did not expect to listen such a guitar here, such a clearly crystal sond of blues-rock. Excelent, I could think was Santana, BB King or Alvin Lee. 5 points for you, keep on rockin' ! Steve
