Little space is needed to set up bongo’s and takes around 15 minutes. David has been known to play in the DJ box right next to the DJ, so space is not really an problem. The instrument is portable enough to bring on & off the stage environment if need be. 

This is quite useful if a promoter wishes David to change location during the performance. Set-up number 2 requires a working area of 8ft x 6ft and a power source for the mixer. Set-up time including sound check is about 40 minutes.

As a professional David arrives at a performance no later than 1 hour before. Normally this gives ample time to solve any technical challenges. However, if necessary, David will make himself available to set-up and sound check plenty of time before performance.

  Available Set Up’s

David-H will bring all the equipment needed to rock your party, including drums, cymbals, stands, microphones, mixer and power cables. There are two set-up’s that he works with. Both are extremely effective and powerful.

1.‘The Bongoman’ - In this set-up David plays a set of the worlds best professional bongo’s. Backed up with an amazing array of additional percussion instruments including cow bell, wood block and whistle. This set-up is what he is most famous for, rocking many clubs including Space & Manumission in Ibiza.

2.‘David-H Percussion’ - This is the ‘full kit’ set-up including all of the above plus a pair of full size congas that
provide the deep & dark tribal sound plus additional cymbals.

Sound is amplified with independent drum microphones

and a superb mixing desk offering amazing balance and harmonic control. David now performs with the latest electronic drums. He plays both an traditional electronic drum kit and the all powerful Roland Octapad SPD30. As well as club work, this set-up is used for large stage environments such as London & Brighton Pride / outdoor festivals.

David loves to perform internationally.  He can transport either of the set-up’s above. However, you may hire additional equipment for him to perform with. A baggage allowance of 30kilos is required for set-up 1 and 50Kilos for set-up 2. An additional 25K hold case for personal items must be added to the flight booking. All payments are in GBP.



Here is a breakdown of what to expect when booking David-H to perform at your event. Over the past decade David-H has accompanied DJs in a club or festival environment. He loves playing charity events, of which he performs for free! Recently David has made himself available to play at weddings, Bar-mitzvah’s, birthday parties, fashion shows and other corporate events. Therefore to
answer your question, ‘YES’, David can play at your event regardless if the audience is 80 guests or 800'000 clubbers.

Usually the music is provided by the DJ. David accompanies all types of DJs playing any style of ‘House’ music. However, if you want something really special then David will DJ and play drums simultaneously. Summer 2013 has seen David performing all season in Ibiza.
