There’s nothing like a live performance when it comes to music, and when it comes to video games there’s nothing like SEEING your favourite themes being played out by the composers who wrote them before they were forged into your fondest memories when trying to get to that next level!

The Dave Wise 5 offer an exciting and involving ‘Live Band’ experience where you get watch and listen to some of David’s most loved tunes on the big stage. Playing a mixture of his action themes and relaxing ambiance, fans get to witness an intimate show with an electric atmosphere every time, featuring graphics and effects that pay tribute to the games in which they originate!

Performing music ‘old and new’ spanning over 3 decades of video games, DW5 is a four-piece line up PLUS special guest musicians who take their place on stage as the honorary ‘5th’ member of the band!


  • Nigel Atkins - Drummer
    Nige is a professional drummer based Derbyshire
    who has been playing drums and percussion since
    the age of 11.

    great big band drummers including Buddy Rich,
    Louis Belson and Gene Krupa.

    Nige has been involved with David Wise for over
    20 years with many projects, however he feels that
    the current set up with Kev and Phil is one of the
    most exciting he has ever been involved with.

    teeth playing guitar in the amazing “Fanx Tara”
    in the 80’s with chart hit success. Phil plays lead

    written for so many Video Game classics!

    his music on stage as a 'Live Band' because it
