About
Dave is one of Minnesota's most sought after musicians for private and corporate events. He has spent considerable time as a Solo Musician with Carnival Cruise Lines in the Caribbean as well as playing some of Colorado's top ski resort towns. His summers are spent performing at many popular resort areas throughout the Midwest. In addition to playing live, Dave is also an accomplished songwriter who specializes in personalized wedding and anniversary songs as well as writing for the big screen. After cutting his teeth with various college bands and acoustic duos, Dave Hudson made his way through the Minneapolis music scene by writing and singing his own blend of melodic acoustic-rock music. His style has been compared to the likes of the Gin Blossoms, U2 and the Counting Crows. A schedule of over 200 shows per year and appearances on NBC affiliate, KARE 11 and Clear Channel's CITIES 97 in Minneapolis have pushed Dave into the performance spotlight. Dave Hudson's performances are engaging, sometimes thought-provoking and always entertaining. His self-styled mix of cover songs range from the 60's to today. Professionalism and customer service are a top priority when you work with Dave.

Dave provided music for my daughter's wedding ceremony. He made a great song suggestion for the unity sand ceremony! He sounded great on all the songs and we even received positive comments from the guests that he sounded great and they loved the songs that he played. I would highly recommend Dave!

Dave was very easy to work with. He was very accommodating to our special sound system/speaker/mic needs for outside and was great overall! He did an excellent job playing our requested songs, was very nice and arrived on time. Thanks for making our day a little easier, Dave! We highly recommend you for other weddings!

Dave did a great job. We have hired many musicians and bands for various events so I feel qualified and confident in giving him 5 stars. Dave responded quickly to all of our pre-event questions even while performing at sea during our planning phase.

Dave was just great. Very easy to deal with. Great singer! We left all song selection to him with no more input than the age range of our crowd and he just handled it for us - hitting just the right note. He came with all his equipment and required nothing of me - I love that in a guy! And he was very flexible about the positioning of the "stage." My only disappointment was that I was also working the event and couldn't listen as much as I'd have liked. I'd definitely hire him again and recommend him to others.
