A singer/songwriter from Durango CO, crosses over genres from Rock to Country. But it’s not just the music and captivating vocals that make him sought after for live performances. “He is a pure entertainer. Drawing audiences in from city to city with his comedic personality, improv-lyrics and songs you love to sing! But the pleasant surprise with a Dave Mensch show is his ability to make you feel at home no matter what venue your in. A talented vocalist and songwriter with an extensive music library. As a venue owner, I've supported the local music scene in downtown Colorado Springs for over 11 years and have to say Dave Mensch is a rare find amongst musicians. Dave became a local favorite instantly.” (Phil Duhon - CEO Oscar’s Tejon Street) Performing 200 to 250 shows a year regularly across Colorado and New Mexico… he is always on tour. Three albums have been released on iTunes.
A self-taught musician with a few short guitar lessons under his belt, Mensch plowed his way through the Colorado music scene in 2005, playing shows and venues sharing his first recorded songs. The ever-growing fan base quickly became enchanted by his commercial sound, warm personality and edgy lyrics. In 2008, after taking first place in the coveted Bodog Battle of the Band Contest in Denver, Mensch took his band Formula 151 to the top one hundred out of six thousand entries in the regional finals in Las Vegas. Throughout his music career, Mensch has opened for such greats as Charlie Daniels, Tanya Tucker, Dan Fogelberg, Kansas, and 38 Special and more.
A songwriter, guitarist and vocalist delivering compelling, relevant lyrics and an infectious sound have crowds flocking to venues to listen to the fresh twist of the current sounds of pop and rock. An entertainer for all ages and venues, Mensch’s shows take the audience on a journey of love, hope, frustration, and contemplation with original songs like I’ll Give the World to You, Yesterday’s Tomorrow, Stiff Arming me and What I’d do to You.
