Dave Mensch – Band in the Barrel Music Series

Loading Events

Mensch a singer/songwriter originally from Arizona, began his music career in Colorado in 2005. Mensch plays a wide variety of original and cover music stylings from country to to rock.

A FIRST TASTE of the performing rush happened at 7 years old in a theatre program in Aspen, Colorado called Kids Live. Instantly hooked and continued doing theatre until 17.

THE FIRST LYRICS were written as a rebelling teenager just passed the driving age, though the first serious dive into creative writing actually happened while attending Arizona State University at age 18.

THE FIRST GUITAR was purchased from a local music store in Durango, Colorado while reassessing the College experience at Fort Lewis College. Well, more like re-evaluating the party versus the education. Balance was yet to be obtained at age 19.

A NICKNAME. Mensch was given the nickname ID as he took a job working at a local music store. There were two Daves and he became the other syllable. Very first CD would be under this name… very few have copies. If you happen to have one, consider yourself lucky, because, that was the beginning and is not available for purchase.
