Dave worked as band leader for the late, great Canadian guitar legend Jeff Healey during the last five years of his life, including performing on his last two recordings and touring worldwide with Jeff, and has performed with many other great musicians including Randy Bachman, Colin James, Edgar Winter, Jack Bruce, Ronnie Hawkins, Ian Gillan, Alannah Myles, Alex Lifeson, Levon Helm and countless others.  Dave and his band have performed in almost every setting imaginable, from opening for James Brown to performing for Queen Elizabeth.

Official Conference Charity

​Hospice Georgian Triangle (HGT)
Hospice Georgian Triangle (HGT) provides trained volunteer and professional care and support to individuals living with life-threatening illness or in their last stages of living, to their families and to the bereaved. 
The Hospice Georgian Triangle Foundation was established to raise the funds required to operate HGT.
 
Palliative Care is provided free of charge to individuals living in the municipalities of Collingwood, Wasaga Beach, Town of Blue Mountains and Clearview Township. HGT receives a portion of our operating funds from the government, but this year we must raise just over a $1,000,000 to make up the shortfall so that we may continue to provide our services at no cost to patients or their families.
