With his furious energy and amazing “over-the-top” style of playing, Dave Hole has carved his own place deep in the pantheon of slide guitar greats. His performances are drenched in waves of fret-melting guitar riffs that infuse the spirit of blues and rock slide legends such as Duane Allman, Johnny Winter and Elmore James.
Since his recording debut 22 years ago, Dave Hole’s records and live performances have drawn raves from countless international publications, including Billboard, Downbeat, Spin, Guitar World and Guitar Player. Similarly, he’s earned rapturous praise from the Associated Press and major US market dailys like the Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times and Washington Post.
Considering all the praise lavished on Hole in recent years, it’s hard to believe that he’s actually been performing for more than four decades. Hole has headlined festivals in many countries including America, Canada, Germany, Denmark, Holland, France, Switzerland, Norway, and Australia. His two appearances at the prestigious Leverkusen Blues Festival in Germany were televised nationally. Tours have also included performances in Brazil, Sweden, Russia, Austria, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Poland, the Czech Republic and the UK.
