The Holidays are "Hear"!
To begin with, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I want to thank all the vendors, businesses and individuals who have retained my music services the past year. May you have a blessed holiday season and a prosperous 2019.
I am getting my schedule filled with holiday parties and events. If you are planning a home or office party, I can accomodate you with the great favorites we listened to on the Andy Williams Christmas Shows long ago. Let's not forget New Years, I still have an evening slot open to help you ring in the new year. Here's a list of my Christmas songs:

Saxaphonist Ron Adwaters and me at the Double Tree Biltmore Hotel
Ron Adwaters is one of the finest saxaphonists in Asheville. I have been blessed to have him join me at the Double Tree Biltmore Hotel twice monthly and he will be performing with me and my bass guitarist at other venues and events coming up.

Cpl. Chad S. Wade USMC
WFOT was founded by the parents of Cpl. Chad S. Wade USMC, who was killed in action in Afghanistan on Dec. 1, 2010. His parents were blessed with 11 days before his deployment to Afghanistan before he lost his life in the line of duty. WFOT raises money to fund the soldiers a trip home to visit family because unkown to most, their plane fares are not paid for by the military (and a flight home from that distance is very expensive), but instead out of their own modest salaries received for serving their country. Chad's Aunt, Amber Banks, along with her friend and colleague, Jennifer Cole, have huge event planned and look forward to raising even more funds this year after seeing the organization’s grow substantially over the past year.
What a month for music! For beginners, I performed for a lovely wedding at the Peninsula Yacht Club on Beautiful Lake Norman. The weather was perfect for an outdoor event. I performed ceremony music and then an hour and a half of cocktail music for what appeared to be over 200 handsome guests and family from all parts of the country. It was truly a joyful event and I wish the couple much happiness and health throughout their life together.
I really enjoyed performing at the beautiful Monte Vista Hotel in Black Mountain for their elegant Sunday Brunch. If you haven’t been this venue for brunch, I recommend you try it for a nice change from the hustle bustle of Asheville dining. The hotel was built in the late 1800’s and has been beautifully restored into a classy boutique hotel, it’s a great for a close to home romantic getaway and walking distance from downtown Black Mountain.
Every Thursday and sometimes on Friday at the Double Tree Hotel, is where you’ll find me performing at one of their two lovely outdoor covered patios. This event is not only for the hotel guests but also for locals to come listen good music, enjoy complimentary appetizers and a no host bar with very knowledgeable “mixologists” to serve up your pleasure of cocktail, local beer and wine.
Valentines Day Serenades
Hi friends, Valentines Day is fast approaching and for many of you, you're either just about out of ideas for what to give your sweetheart after many years of trraditional gift giving, or you want this first Valentine's Day to be unlike she has ever had before . . . I can tell you right now that arranging for a beautiful love song at the workplace, home, restaurant or whereever you choose will be an unforgettable experience for both of you. Whether it be for a husband, wife, mother, father, son or daughter . . . it's very special because we all identify with music especially when the song has a particular special meaning that brings back special memories . . . or sets in place a new special memory.
I have been surprising people for over a year now with serenades and have yet to not bring tears of joyful emotion. I am now scheduling for this coming Valentine's Day in the Buncombe County area and would love to delight your special loved one. There are two ways to make this happen:
1. Go to my website www.DaveLagadiMusic.com and place your cursor over the song lists tabs on the Home Page to view songs I already perform then call 828-216-6735 or email me DaveLagadiMusic@yahoo.com and I'll arrange with you the time and place of the event.
2. Have a special song that's not on my list, no problem, with a little notice I can learn your request or I just may know it already because I play all sorts of music styles, i.e., pop, country, folk . . . I can also help you select a song by what feeling you are attempting to convey to the recipient.
My fee for this special service is only $50 and I don't mind if you want to record it on video, which is highly recommended so you both can re-visit it in the future.
Lastly,be sure you have some tissue available cause there's going to be some tears of joy!
