[image-1]About David:

As an original member of 1970's supergroup Firefall, David Muse helped craft the unique sound that produced gold and platinum albums, as well as numerous chart-topping singles. Songs like "You Are The Women," "Goodbye, I Love You" and "Strange Way" are regularly counted among some of commercial radio's most commonly-played tunes. This success took the band around the world on tours with acts like Leon and Mary Russell, The Doobie Brothers, The Band (on their final tour before making their farewell documentary movie, The Last Waltz), Fleetwood Mac during their Rumors Tour, Chicago, The Marshall Tucker Band, The Beach Boys and Lynyrd Skynyrd (frequently playing with them right up to Skynyrd’s terrible plane crash). As often happens to lots of great bands, the early '80s witnessed the unfortunate breakup of the original band.


Since the dissolution of Firefall in 1981, David has performed with numerous other national and regional acts, pursued several solo projects and performed as a member of The Marshall Tucker Band for the better part of a decade. He occasionally performs with various members of Firefall and participated in a 2008 reunion show in Boulder, Colo., which featured most of the surviving original members.

Recently diagnosed with a form of cancer called Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, local musician David Muse is currently undergoing medical treatment for the disease. Many of David's friends, both personal and from the music business, will stage a day-long concert this upcoming Sunday to help with medical bills and living expenses during his recovery. All donations and contributions from the event sponsors will directly benefit David and The Cancer Society. Details after the jump.
