MC: You’re a newlywed. Where did you meet your wife, Tamra? DV: Tamra and I were introduced to each other by our mutual friend, Michael Brandon. We were both happily single, but wow, we just fell head over heels for each other! We were married just this past December 5th in Kona, Hawaii. So yes, we’re newlyweds. In retrospect, I was really happy that I didn’t meet her at a show; instead we met in a much more natural way. It’s not exactly ‘keeping it real’ to first set eyes on someone when they’re performing on stage. As it turned out, once we were already a couple, the first show she saw me play was Boston Strong. I’m up there on a 75- foot Magnatron screen performing with BOSTON, in Boston, for the first time the band had played there in 20 years. Then I’m singing with Steven Tyler, and we’re meeting all these celebrities backstage. I told her “Honey, not every day is going to be like this!” And she’s good with that. MC: What does the future hold for David Victor? DV: Of course, we’re going to be working hard on booking shows for Rock Stars & Stripes as well as my other bands, which includes BOSTYX (a tribute to the music of BOSTON and Styx). I’m also planning on opening a music school in Danville in 2017 for private lessons, guest seminars and career education. Today, David lives a suburban rock star life which includes encouraging his friends and neighbors to come out to his shows. I saw one of the very first Rock Stars & Stripes shows back in August at the Firehouse Theater in Pleasanton and was blown away by the music, the video and the great time had by people in the audience. David is currently performing as the founding member and lead vocalist of Rock Stars & Stripes, a polished, high-impact live rock show with powerful and moving visuals celebrating some of the greatest American rocks artists and hits including music by: BOSTON, Styx, KISS, REO Speedwagon, The Eagles, The Cars, Billy Joel, LynyrdSkynyrd, Journey, ZZ Top, Night Ranger, and many more. The show takes the audience on a “rock and roll road trip” across the country with a positive, entertaining musical and visual experience. David fronts a seasoned group of All-Star musicians accompanied by an evocative video produced by Emmy and MTV award winning video editor Jeffrey Clark. Rock Stars & Stripes is a patriotic tribute to the people and music of America. Feel free to “Friend” David on Facebook or visit his website at davidvictor. com. Tickets to the Lesher show can be purchase at the Lesher Box Office or through rockstarsandstripesshow.com 32 A L I V E E A S T B A Y n o v e m b e r 2 0 1 6
