Dave Minor 


Dave just flat out loves to play the bass and make people dance! He started playing at 14 after his two buddies took him to his first concert.  By age 18 Dave was playing in an 8 piece dance band gigging around the Bay Area. Since then he has had the great fortune of traveling down many musical roads, performing in diverse settings from R&B, Blues, Funk and Jazz to Rock, Folk, Country and Church Music.

Dave has shared the stage with major label rock artists The Tubes and the Crash Test Dummies and neo-soul sensation Goapele.  Being the house bassist for blues jams in the North Bay gave Dave the opportunity to play with and learn from a lot of great musicians. Carmen Ratti Band brings him full circle to the music he Loves the most!
