vocalist: tenor, guitar, electric bass guitar
From the chaos of a moving train (AMTRAK Coast Starlight) to the intimacy of a nursing home bedroom, David Kaufman is experienced and comfortable performing in an unusually wide range of venues. Restaurants, lodges, churches, parks, private homes, theaters, gr and openings, weddings, anniversaries, bar mitzvahs, family reunions, even funerals. David's done 'em! And now, due to the current "situation," we can add front lawns to the list. Regardless of where he's playing, David likes to put his audience at ease with a casual, friendly style, eliminating the "invisible wall" between audience and performer. The important thing is to connect with the people and make them feel comfortable. Specializing in music for the over-50 set, David's repertoire includes popular music spanning most of the 20th century. From Sinatra to Elvis to the Beatles to Elton. From Americana to Broadway to Country to Tin Pan Alley. Familiar warhorses. Lost chestnuts you wish you heard more often. Even patriotic, holiday and camp songs!
David Kaufman's decades of performance experience also includes Beatles, Kinks and Bob Dylan tribute bands, oldies bands (including Captain Cardiac and the Coronaries), and country bands. David has recorded seven full-length, fully-produced albums of his own material.
Since 2011, David has hosted a singer/songwriter open mic night at The Actors Group in Burbank, encouraging beginning musicians and welcoming old pros.
David, a featured performer at LA Curbside Entertainment is currently performing curbside.
