Super Dave, who gave no other name besides his performance moniker, can be found strumming his guitar on the street corners of downtown Colorado Springs. Dave likes Colorado Springs, but hardly thinks that it is deserving of the number five ranking it received from U.S. News and World Report in their most recent list of best places to live. “Colorado Springs is nice but you would think that that sort of thing would go to Daytona or Miami, you know.” Dave plays classic tunes from the Eagles, John Lennon, and Johnny Cash most times that he performs downtown. “I know a bunch of people downtown. It’s good to see everybody out and enjoying the sunshine,” said Dave. Super Dave greets each and every passerby with some combination of a “hello partner,” “beautiful day, huh,” and a guffaw. Dave says he plays at different spots all over Colorado Springs, but chances are the next sunny day that rolls around he will be downtown with his guitar and duckie.
