David Pergament - Musician & Dogwalker

I'm not crazy, I'm creative

Dave the Drummer

It was the year of the Tiger and a year of many international events.
One of these (perhaps not as important as the international ones)
was the birth of David Pergament.

In a family highly influenced by music,
David grew up enjoying music which were not common for children in his age.

When the classmates were dancing to Madonna at school-discos,
He would rather sit alone at home, listening to Miles Davis.

Since his parents were musicians, it became natural for David to pick up an instrument.
He choose the drums.

It was a choice which still follows him up to this day.
