David was born March 13, 1961 in Harbor City, CA and grew up in Wilmington, CA. As a child he started playing drums at the age of 5. There was always music in his grandfathersâ home, Gus Mora, a guitar player. His grandmother Alma , a Hawaiian native was also a musician. She played the ukulele. Together they played at parties and at home. His father David Sr. listened to Blues and Jazz, and to such artists as Sergio Mendes, Cal Tjader, Jimmy Reed and Stan Getz. As a child he listened to all the Motown artists, Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, also James Brown. His older brother listened to Rock which influenced him as well. The Beatles, Elvis, The Doors, Jimmy Hendrix, Led Zepplin , Janis Joplin and Carlos Santana to name a few. A self taught player, he played to albums and the radio. When he had his first real job at the Long Beach Naval Shipyard as a Pipefitter he bought congas. The year was 1979. In 1981 he landed a night job at the legendary Concerts by the Sea in Redondo Beach, California where the heavy weights of Jazz came to play. â I was getting my education â says David â watching and listening to the greatest players in the world.â Players such as Mongo Santamaria, Willie Bobo, Pete Escovedo, Poncho Sanchez, Dizzy Gillespie, Alex Acuna, Justo Almario, Giovani Hidalgo, Long John Oliva, Johnny âGuitar â Watson, Bobby Blue Bland , Freddy Hubbard, Jimmy Smith, Kenny G, Diane Schuur, etc. Listening night after night affected him deeply. At the age of 21 he had his first professional gig, at a bar in Hawaiian Gardens, CA, called Little Archies, playing top 40 cover tunes. â Poncho Sanchez was hot so I played him every chance I got, Tito Puente too.â Today David is a full-time Longshoreman, working in Los Angeles and Long Beach harbors, not far from where he grew up.
