Dave Beegle plays guitar; but he is also a composer, a producer and a teacher. In 2015, Beegle was given the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Colorado Music Association. Hailing from the robust state of Colorado, Beegle makes an inspired sound that delights music fans willing to look beyond the fickle trends of pop.
Beegle’s last album, Beyond the Desert, features the Dave Beegle Acoustic Band, a unit including bassist Mike Olson, drummer Matt Henderson, percussionist Erik Meyer and guitarist Aaron Lee. Guest percussionist Christian Teele adds significantly to the overall rhythmic expression of this recording. The CD is a blend of world and ethno-alternative fusion with a hearty kick of rock-n-roll inspired energy, leaving this progressive acoustic contribution in a unique musical atmosphere sure to interest those with exotic and sophisticated tastes. From Spanish and Flamenco melodies to Middle Eastern and Balkan flavored arrangements, this album will take you on a journey 'Beyond the Desert' to a place of tuneful bliss.
Beegle is currently in the process of creating a brand new album, featuring his newly finished creative works. Similar to previous albums, this album will feature refreshing and unique instrumental world music. The album will be released in 2017.
Favorite Ice Cream: Vanilla
Favorite Book: "Well, I would say the Bible, but I believe the Bible transcends the standard of typical books. So I would have to say that my favorite book is Compelled by Love by Heidi Baker."
Dave often plays acoustic guitar as a solo act and in duo formats. In the year 2000, Beegle released "A Year Closer," an album that explores Flamenco and other world music styles with solo acoustic recordings and the first tracks by the Beegle Acoustic Band.
On stage, Beegle continues to gig with his classic rock band, the Jurassicasters - but his most tremendous output these days, is as a producer. He has produced albums for Christian acoustic artist Danny Oertli, as well as music by contemporary Christian group Simple Truth, as well as a band helmed by Colorado guitarist Mike Lopez called GasHead. He has also produced albums ranging in style from Northern Colorado rock band Patti Fianco, to the folk style of singer-songwriter Julie Host and Liz Barnez. With over 20 years of experience under his producer belt, Beegle has produced more than 200 projects. Of course, Beegle not only sits on the producer's side of the glass, but also appears as a guest artist on many of those recordings, playing both guitar and keyboards.
