Job Title
Musician, Drummer

Dave Lauser accidently discovered the drums while helping clean out a friend’s room and was allowed to keep the sticks he found as a reward. His curious nature developed into a passion for drumming that grew even more when his parents got him his first drum kit, and ultimately Dave turned that into a career in music. Since then, Dave has shared the stage with many musicians, including his close friend Sammy Hagar. In his 2020 virtual NAMM Oral History interview, Dave recounted his favorite memories playing with Sammy and some of his earliest remembrances of playing the drums.
