It all started for Harmonicadave (aka: Dave Hunt) about 100 years ago as a little kid playing drums to "The Little Red Rooster". Dave turned pro at the age of 18 and toured Germany, During that trip to Frankfurt the singer was so ill she had to return to the UK, so Dave took over vocals, he soon got the front man bug and never went back to playing the drums again.

In 1971 Dave formed the band 'Grecco', with Rick Woogar, Lee Baker, Andy Dransfield and Mick Clark. The guys had a great following and managed to reach the final of the Melody Maker Rock Competition, coming in second place. In the mid 70’s, Dave played in the blues band 'Snatch', along with Steve Wilkinson, Craig Laing, Colin Wight and John Laforge. Dave took to playing harp after some great tips from Tony Wilkinson of the Bamboo Beat Band.

Dave's travels then took him to Spain, where he worked with ‘The Blue Thunder Band’, and played at prestigious Harley and Fiesta gigs, performing to huge sell out crowds. He played at the Calpe Bike Festival and was made an honoree member of ‘The Cruzados Harley Club’. Dave performed alongside big name acts such as BB King, Linda Gail Lewis (Gerry Lees Sister), and Dutch star Stephen Ackles. He also appeared on a number of Spanish Radio Shows and featured on 2 TV Promos. Dave was slowly building up a big following through performing at his own blues nights staged at The Heartbreak Hotel Rock Bar, Daytona Rock Bar, Western Saloon and The Guinness Bar in Benidorm.

On Dave's return to the UK he formed a duo with Chris Pearson called 'Rough Justice' and continued to do his own solo gigs, as well as working for various other local bands. In 2012 Harmonicadave signed a record deal with UK label MEP and is currently in the studio working on material for his debut album. Chicago Blues is the first single taken from the album and was co-written by producer Andy Littlewood. Dave also features as guest musician on the forthcoming album, 'One Horse Town', by blues-rock outfit 'Mockingbird Hill'.
