From the band that brought national attention to Philadelphia’s music scene, The Hooters’ David Uosikkinen is recording what he feels, are the Essential Songs of Philadelphia. Uosikkinen chose to revisit songs recorded in Philadelphia or written and performed by Philadelphians. These essential songs feature David’s band, In The Pocket, a rotating line up of Philly’s most respected musicians.
David has played drums with The Hooters for over 30 years. He has also recorded and performed with Alice Cooper, Rod Stewart, Cyndi Lauper, Taj Mahal and Patty Smyth, as well as with many other emerging artists. In addition, David has performed on extensive international tours, including Live Aid, Amnesty International and Roger Waters’ The Wall in Berlin.
When David isn’t on stage, he returns to his first love of teaching and mentoring his students. Contact us for more information on lessons.
