My name is Dave Z & I have been playing Guitar for 18 years. I am the driving force behind the L.A based Band CHAINDRIVEN. This year the Band won the 95.5 KLOS Mark & Brian Battle of the Fans contest. We opened for Lynard Skynard & Hank Williams Jr at Soboba Arena as a result of wining the Contest. The Band is currently preparing for our next full length recording & taking a break from shows for the first time in years. We have headlined on the Sunset Strip & surrounding areas many times. Our last live appearance was a few weeks ago & we were direct support for Love/Hate. I have studied with many Musicians Institute Instructors over the years. I am former student of Jennifer Batten, Bart Walsh & Paul Hanson. I love playing Guitar & am a life long musician no matter if I am in the spotlight on stage in the recording studio or in my living room. I will never stop playing & music has been one of the most positive things that has ever happened to me. I appreciate all of the votes & I thank Dean for the opportunity at a needed endorsement.
