Hailing from the east coast of Canada, Dale grew up surrounded by music and musicians. At 14, he decided to make it his life. After high school his family moved to Ontario and he soon found himself on the road with first travelling band at 17 years of age. Between then and now, he's covered the entire country...St. Johns to Victoria...and Windsor to Yellowknife
Since moving to the London area in 1995, Dale quickly established himself in the local music scene, and he's had a well-stocked calendar ever since. Even now he skillfully juggles up to seven different projects at a time...including 2 original bands--NAIL (progressive metal) and The Doug Varty Band (Rock & Blues Rock). Both bands are currently writing and recording new material for upcoming cd's.
Then there are his tribute bands.--SabbathOnlySabbath., Rod Stewart, and Bryan Adams, C & The Gig Masters (which is basically a tribute to a lot of the number 1 hits of the 80's and 90's like Heart, Scorpions, etc.) He also does a little teaching on the side and fills in for various local cover bands--Tommy Solo & the Night Crew, and Howzat. Dale is also the house session drummer for Mole Studios in London. As well as having a small computer shop at home, he is completely self-employed and a full-time working musician. And now a very proud member of the DREAM family!!
