Dave agreed and has graciously offered to do a tribute sometime during the end of the year. Both Nicholas and Donte are very excited and appreciate Dave‘s offer. We would love to announce a date for this tribute show as soon as possible. Nick‘s Birthday is July 23rd and it would be a great day to make an announcement. Thank you Dave!”
