Summer Is Here!

Here I am in my Lower East Side apartment in New York City and I’m looking out the window of my NYC recording studio (which is 12×5′!) onto an amazing Manhattan landscape. Seward Park is below me and in the background is the Manhattan bridge, the Verizon building, the court houses and the soon to be finished Freedom Tower.

It’s morning and the air is perfect on this last day of May. The summer is in its infancy and with that feeling I’m looking forward to this summer in particular!

I’ve just launched this website and my new CD “All In” AND I’m about to embark on some really cool shows. June 14th I will be performing in Lviv Ukraine at The Alfa Jazz Festival where I will be headlining the Stage on Rynok Square. Now I know what you’re thinking, “is Dave out of his mind for going to Ukraine?!!!”. Well… I might be out of my mind but rest your mind assured, the band and I are flying in from Warsaw Poland and Lviv is in the western most part of Ukraine where things are quiet. Also, I am so excited to have the the opportunity to connect with Ukrainian music fans. I’m not going to let the situation in Ukraine stop me from spreading some love through music over there.

When I come back I will be hosting the jam at The Stanhope House on Tuesday June 17th and immediately after the jam I will be part of The Stanhope House R&B Reviews first ever video that’s being shot at The Stanhope House 45 Main St Stanhope NJ as a featured guest! That’s gonna be cool!

My first “All In” CD release, or pre CD release party will June 20th at FONTANA’s 105 Eldridge St NY NY featuring the opening acts CW BLUES PROJECT, LUBA DVORAK and special guests Dan Cazio and Amy Coleman. Then I will be doing a NJ pre CD release party/jam at The Stanhope House June 24th then I’m off to Europe!

July 4th I will be at The Trandal Blues Festival (and I’m working on some more dates you find out about by clicking here). Then I fly back to the US and I’m playing Maplewoodstock July 12th, a show in Staten Island honoring the late Mamie Smith July 20th then I fly with my lovely wife Judy for her first ever trip to Norway and July 25th I’m at Skjærgårds Bluesfestival in Smøla Norway. The big one this summer is August 2nd where I will be performing at The Notodden Blues Festival, perhaps the biggest blues festival in Scandinavia!

August is looking like fun too with trips to The Rusty Nail in Wilmington NC and Florida, although I usually take time off to be with Judy and my son Jasper!

There’s a LOT more but let me stop with this! Don’t forget you can always read my article in Big City Blues Magazine every two months when it comes out and you can always keep track of me by going to the full Dave Fields website and my Facebook sites (listed on the side bars)!

Thanks so much for checking out what I’ve been doing! I hope to see you soon at one of my shows!!!


Dave Fields New CD “ALL IN” 32 Weeks in the Top 10 RMR Blues Rock Charts


ALL IN was in the top 5 of The Roots Music Report Blues Rock Charts from August 25th 2014 to February 22nd 2015!

ALL IN features 11 songs produced by Dave: 9 originals an, a funky ‘live’ version of Led Zep’s “BLACK DOG” and a burning rendition of the timeless classic “CROSSROAD”.

To purchase a download of “ALL IN” click here!

ALL IN was recorded mostly live in the studio. It features many of the same musicians on Dave’s first three CD’s TIME’S A WASTIN’, ALL WOUND UP & DETONATION: Andy Huenerberg (bass), Kenny Soule (drums), Vladimir Barsky (keys), Dave Moore (drums) and some new comers: Tony Tino (bass) and special guest BMA nominee Dave Keyes (piano).

There are many different flavors of Dave featured on this CD. The rockin’-fatalistic “Changes In My Life” starts off the CD with a scintillating guitar solo that zooms off into the clouds. Dave blazes away on the spooky-rock “Voodoo Eyes” which will take you to a place where classic rock legends dwell. “Let’s Go Downtown” will get you “boogie-in” your seat while the surreal-lamenting “Dragon Fly” drifts through layers of realities. ALL IN winds down a road that will take you to your limit and then drop you in a place that will make you say, “Oh Yeah!”

Gearing Up For The Warmer Weather & The Stanhope House & more!

Wow, there’s so much that’s been going on, so much to tell!

I’m so excited that the winter is finally abating and the warmer weather is heading for NYC! This was an especially tough winter here in the Northeast US however I wasn’t in the Northeast that much the past few months! It’s amazing to me that in the middle of February when I was in Longyearbyen Svalbard (Spitzbergen) it was colder in NYC!

Don’t miss the jam at The Stanhope House sponsored by Big City Blues Magazine and hosted by myself featuring The Johnny Charles Band and a special guest every Tuesday night. Its been so much fun! If you haven’t been to The Stanhope House its one of the oldest blues joints in the US, its been around since the early 1800’s (well… they had a different sort of blues music back then!)

I will be at a brand new venue in NJ Ranchero Cantina 214 Kinderkamack RD Emerson NJ the first Saturday of the month (May 3rd and June 7th)

I’m happy to announce that I will be returning to Norway July 4th to perform at TRANDAL BLUES FESTIVAL and Skjærgårds Bluesfestival July 25th in Smøla and more shows in the works which I will list as the dates come in.

I recently was in the studio recording with the legend and my soul brother Delmar Brown and I’m thrilled with what we just recorded. I’m hopeful that you readers can check out what we’ve been up to soon.

You can always check out more about what I’m doing in the bimonthly issue of Big City Blues Magazine.

There’s more to come! To quote the great Ray Redniss, stay tuned! LOL!

Dave Fields is headed for Norway!

Hey all! Andy Huenerberg, Kenny Soule and I are headed off to Norway again to first play at BUCKLEYS in Oslo June 27th then THE OSØREN BLUES FESTIVAL Bergen Norway on June 28th and lastly THE FINSE BLUES FESTIVAL on June 29th. This will be my sixth time to BUCKLEYS and its my favorite blues room in Oslo. This will be my first time traveling to Bergen and I’m really looking forward to it. Oddly enough, as a kid I went to High School in Demarest NJ which is located in Bergen County so this trip has a special meaning for me! Oh my gosh….Finse…. I wish I could take all of you to see this magical place. Its located on the highest point on the Norwegian rail line smack dab in the middle of Oslo and Bergen. It has a year round glacier and is 1222 meters in elevation. I love al my Norwegian friends and I can’t wait to see all of them!

I hope to see you at one of my shows!!!

Dave Picks “Detonation” as “Blues/Rock CD of the Year”!

Mark Wade the host of has picked Dave Fields CD Detonation as “Blues/Rock CD of the Year”

Mark.” The last two weeks I have been playing the best of 2012 and ended with what I felt was the best six CD’s of 2012.
Below is the copy from the website.

Great burning blues guitars with just the right hint of Jimi Hendrix in some of the songs. Songs like “Addicted to Fire”, “Pocket Full Of Dust”, “The Altar”, “In The Night”, and “Doing Hard Time” all should be getting a lot of airplay. The sounds and moods Dave creates in his songs like “Prophet In Disguise” really shows his skill as not just a great guitarist but a accomplish song writer. This is one of those CD’s that you keep playing over and over again because you just can’t get enough of it. Keep your eyes and ears open for Dave Fields’ Detonation, this man is going somewhere.”
