“Are they really playing that”?

It’s a common question we hear at events.  We focus on creating a great natural sound through consistent hard work…. Yes, that is actually us!  And its one of the best compliments we receive at our shows.  Live or Memorex?  The band takes pride in keeping the “Live” in “Live Music” performing its entire show without the need of pre-recorded music or “backing tracks”.  One of the last party bands in the area committed to the art.  The difference in live vs. tracked is unmistakable. Patrons experience true musicianship and a more “Natural Sound”, “Natural Feel” and “Natural Performance” from a very talented collection of experienced musicians. Therefore, clients get what they request…. LIVE MUSIC!   This is ONE band, not a conglomeration of multiple “cookie cutter” bands, which often share the same backing tracks for a performance.  The challenge to make this work consistently is great, but we love challenges and are up to the task!


David Whiteman joined the Dallas Fire Department in 1989, for 10 of those years he served as a front line paramedic.  He retired after 28 years of service to the city.  During his time he realized his desire to help people was equaled by his passion for bringing joy to the masses through live music.  David Whiteman and the King David Band has performed since 2001 at the hottest venues in Dallas/Fort Worth well as countless wedding receptions, birthday parties, conventions, festivals, holiday parties, mitzvahs and corporate events all across the U.S…… With every performance, the band gives nothing less than everything they have taking every event to the highest possible level. Our motto: Never let being good get in the way of being GREAT!
