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!
