Founding member and the driving force in bringing “The Streamliners” together, Dave Smith originally hails from London, Ontario, but currently calls Amherst, Nova Scotia home.
While residing in Sackville, Dave became a member of the blues band “Malpractice” along with his friend Doc, who fronted the band. While playing songs by such artists and “Down Child Blues Band” and “Stevie Ray Vaughan”, Smith realized that he missed the sound of the blues harp.
He began perfecting this harp style by founding the now defunct “The BS Blues Band” in Sackville, New Brunswick in 1992. Asking fellow “Malpractice” alumni and friend, Doc to join with him as the band’s bass player, Smith began fronting the band and has earned a reputation as one of the finest blues harpists in the region.
Smith was also invited to appear on Al Cooper’s latest CD and has played with Halifax’s Joe Murphy.
