Dave Barra started his DJ career back in the late 90's where vinyl was the only option , after plugging away Dave finally broke the scene in his local town of wigan, but this was short lived and was sadly forced to hang up his headphones due to family and work commitments. after a 12 year gap and new unforeseen life change, Dave found himself rekindling the love for music and Djing and the love and passion for the scene, combined with the huge enthusiasm, Dave made the step and purchased the pioneer CDJs and djm package, but as the technology was new to him and this was a serious come back, Dave booked himself one to one DJ lessons at Manchester Midi School to gain as much knowledge of the latest pioneer technology.
Dave also started to get reacquainted with old friends which further lead to gig opportunities. over the last 4 years Dave has managed to break the very populated DJ scene, and played at quite a few gigs, festivals, private functions (one of which resulted in ending the night going b2b with Alistair Whitehead) and bar gigs. Dave has also started his own quarterly old skool dance event which continues to grow. Dave has entered dj competitions which has also gained him gigs, this summer Dave id through to the next round in the competition hosted be SOS ibiza at the ibiza rocks hotel.
