Guitarist, engineer, producer and four-time Grammy nominee, Dave Weiner, has been playing guitar and writing music for nearly 3 decades.
Starting at age 10, within 3 years, Dave had an original band and released a full-length record; another one at age 16. After high school, Dave went to college where his cover band played countless gigs and upon graduating (with an Accounting degree!), he moved to Hollywood to attend Musician’s Institute: Guitar Institute of Technology.
While at school, Dave interned for Vai’s manager. Through this work, Dave met Vai and eventually Steve heard a demo Dave had recorded and, impressed, invited him to join his band. That was 1999. 17 years, 9 world tours, multiple live dvd and cd releases and Dave is still Steve’s go-to guitarist.
Dave also has multiple records of his own released (daveweiner.com), created and hosts the internet’s premier, longest-running guitar education website (guitopia.com), and started the Philly Guitar Club (phillyguitarclub.com).
