David Gerald, the son of Mississippi born and raised parents, grew up to the sounds of the blues and R&B music in his hometown, Detroit. Gerald started playing guitar at the age of 16, influenced by Prince and 80's rock guitarists. He rediscovered the blues and listened to the music of Albert King, ZZ Hill, B.B. King, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, to name just a few.

Gerald performed in many local blues, R&B, and rock bands cutting his guitar and vocal chops live and in person. Now in his 40's, Gerald is playing nationally with his own band. This summer, he will be performing at clubs and festivals across the United States. Don't miss this opportunity!

Folks should bring a blanket or chairs. They can bring a picnic or snacks -- or purchase them from the vendors -- Bora Bora (grilled chicke plus tacos, burritos) and Scoop (hand-made ice cream).
