Dave Munkhoff took his first guitar lesson on his 12th birthday. By the age of 14 he was playing in bands and teaching guitar at that same music store in upstate New York.

At the age of 15, his band released their first recording of original songs, music written by Dave. Soon the band was getting radio air play and doing concerts with various headliners of the day. Such as The Outsiders, The Happenings, The Barkays, Mytch Ryder And The Detroit Wheels.

In the mid 70''s, Dave toured the eastern states
and Canada with "Wail", a popular hard rock band out of Rochester, New York. Wail was the big thing in upstate New York, opening shows for people like Ronnie Montrose, Melissa Manchester, Black Sheep(Lou Gram), Cheap Trick, and various one hit wonders.

From there, he was hired by a major Toronto production company to play in the band Thor. The producers also used him on other projects, where he recorded everything from disco, punk, latin, rock and jazz, often playing all of the bass and guitar parts himself.

In ''78, Dave Moved backed to Rochester, forming his own band, The Dolphins, with Phil Naro on vocals. Before the band really had a chance to develop into a long term project, Dave accepted an offer from Billy Sheehan to join his new band.

In 1979, Dave moved to his native state of Florida and did studio work in Orlando and Tampa. In Tampa, he recorded with some Cuban musicians and found himself playing ''real'' latin music for the next year and a half.

During the 80''s, Dave recorded in central Florida and released a solo record in ''84. In 1987, he decided to build a home studio.

After five years of upgrading his equipment (when he could afford it), he released his "In The Red" album in Dec. ''92. Everything on the album was written and performed entirely by Dave. In Sept. ''93, he released another album called "High Water", again writing and performing all of the music, but this time enlisting the aid of Bill Yearty on vocals.

Dave and Bill then put a band together and promoted the album on a local level.
"Stranger Things", the second Munkhoff & Yearty album, was released in ''94, again written and produced by Dave, but after a year of small bars and low pay, he needed a change.

In ''94, Dave had produced an album for an ''Oldies'' act, (playing all of the music on the album) so when they asked him to play some concerts and car shows, he was ready for a change.
In the late 90''s, nerve damage in his left hand forced him to stop playing guitar. In 2001, Dave took his guitar out of the closet and is back, with a new finger technique, playing because he has to.
