Like all good bands, great results come from teamwork. DG Music is no different in this regard and could not operate without its loyal team of individuals...

DG Music is directed by David Graham
David is a professional musician, promoter, agent and educator who has over 20 years of experience working in the professional music business. After studying music at Manchester University and the saxophone at the Royal Northern College of Music he has gone on to perform at venues all over the UK and Europe whilst continuing to promote and encourage the production of live music.

A strong background in classical, jazz, pop and contemporary fields has given David a wonderfully broad set of contacts on which to base his professional music services, as well as a unique understanding of exactly what music clients require. Furthermore, this information and consultation is free at the point of contact and carries no obligation.

David plays saxophone, clarinet, piano, guitar & bass, and continues to find the time to maintain an active career as a professional performer. He plays in a number of groups including Funk Soul Brother, Unit 3, and also plays solo piano for events. He also currently plays in world class saxophone band Group S (alongside John Helliwell from Supertramp and Simon Willescroft from Duran Duran) and from 2009 - 2011 was saxophonist, guitarist and piano player with 70s pop stars Showaddywaddy. He has also recently been performing with 70s/80s popstars Heatwave and Odyssey and is due to tour with Andy Abraham in April to June 2019.

David also has an established background in education having held numerous peripatetic music posts in Manchester and London before settling back in Rutland where he taught at Oakham School for 10 years eventually becoming Head of Woodwind. Whilst there he taught the saxophone, clarinet, and jazz piano, and also ran a number of ensembles including Oakham School Jazz Orchestra, and the Saxophone Choir.

David is also a keen cyclist, practises yoga most days and likes to socialise with friends. He has two daughters aged 19 and 16.
