Heavily influenced by the long heritage of singer/songwriters, as well as cutting-edge rock bands, Dave Mensch offers guests of The Office Spiritorium a privileged “unplugged” version of songs performed by his full band, Formula 151. The Formula 151 sound, with Dave at its core, endeavors to take listeners on a melodic and lyrical journey that opens the heart and touches the soul. Originally from Arizona, Dave is a self-taught guitarist and songwriter, though he trained vocally as a youth at the Aspen-based “Kids Live” program launched by John Denver and Tom Crum at Winstar. He honed his craft throughout college and joined the band Prima Facia for a time, before forming Formula 151 in 2004. The following year the group released its first CD, Down on the Beaten Road. Early in 2007 Formula 151 released a second CD, Yesterday’s Tomorrow, featuring Dave’s impassioned, vulnerable and heartfelt songs. His performances at The Office showcase his songwriting talent, as well as his amazing voice, wry sense of humor and alluring charm.For further information, visit the band’s web site, www.myspace.com/f151.
Dave Mensch will play in the Office Spiritorium every Thursday of the Year starting at about 5:30 pm.
