Where did his stage name come from? Well………those who know Dave will tell you that he is not the slimiest of people hence the Big, Dave for obvious reasons and Bopper because he was a big name in the 60’s with Rock n Roll. Dave has a number of followers who love and support him and his music where ever he is playing; so if you are a fan of the 50’5 and 60’s music he is defiantly worth a watch. ‘Big Dave Bopper is the Big man with the Big heart and a fantastic voice.\
