Dave Huff has been entertaining Detroit area bar and festival crowds since 1996 although his musical roots extend back much farther than that. Growing up as the son of a classically trained musician, Dave's style and original music reflects by a wide variety of genres including folk, rock, campfire and country. No two song sound the same on Dave's first CD release, "Hey Folks!" and his vocals, acoustic guitar, and harmonica blend seamlessly with the rest of the instruments to produce a great sound that's catchy, easy to listen to and fun to sing along with.

"Hey Folks!" is an anthology of Dave's experiences as an observer of and participant in life. His lyrics tend to lament inconsistencies in human behavior and the careful listener will find that they portray a confidence in our basic goodness. When Dave's not writing or recording songs, he can be found on the campus of the University of Detroit-Mercy where he is a professor of Information Systems…a profession that he loves and that keeps him infused with the energy and insight of our next great generation.

As a performer, Dave likes to let the music represent itself, and other than a few subtle jokes here and there (jokes that he, himself, is usually the only one to get), gigs are packed with music that is relevant to the day and honest in it's past. Artists who have been significantly influential to Dave include: Cat Stevens, Jim Croce, Dylan, Arlo Guthrie, Gordon Lightfoot, Fleetwood Mac and Sister Hazel. When you see him live, you will hear his renditions of songs from these artists (and a myriad of others) peppered throughout the night…go on and make a request. Dave likes to remind folks that he's not proud…or smart…so he'll take a shot at anything and hope that you'll enjoy it.
