Born in Nanaimo, British Columbia, DAVID GOGO received a ukulele at age 4 and his first guitar at age 5. Encouraged by his parents throughout his childhood, the guitar began to captivate him. By the age of 16, Gogo was working steadily as a professional musician. His interest in the blues could be considered unusual for a teenager in the early 1980’s.Nonetheless, David was drawn to the emotional power and raw depth of such performers as Howling Wolf and Son House.
Whether he’s showcasing his blistering guitar licks and soulful vocals during his electric performances or drawing the crowd in with his humour and down-to-earth personality during his acoustic shows, audiences throughout North America, Europe and Scandinavia can attest to his outstanding talent. These successes have David busier than ever and happy to find acceptance as a world class bluesman. This multiple Blues Music Award winner adds heart, soul and grit to the international blues scene and, oh yes… David Gogo is his real name.
