This is Dave Herzog from sunny Key West, Florida. Wow! What a ride. From playing drums in rock bands in the Midwest to playing Caribbean steel drums in the Florida Keys. Sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure it's really real!

After saying goodbye to the cold winters of Minnesota, my wife, Barb, and I bought a sailboat and we cruised the coasts of Florida, while I played solo in many of the tiki bars along the way, 'til we reached the end of the road in Key West. We thought we'd stay for a few months and that was nine years ago!

During those nine years I headed north during the summers to the Lakes Area of Minnesota where I played steel drums with the band "Island Time". That all changed when I first heard "Howard Livingston & the Mile Marker 24 band" in the Florida Keys. I realized that playing and touring with Mile Marker 24 would be a dream come true.
Now, as a member of the "Mile Marker 24 Band" playing steel drums and percussion, I'm looking forward to playing the best venues in the Florida Keys and hitting some of the hot spots in our northern summer tours! Hope to catch you along the way!!
Summer of 2010 I will be back in the Minnesota lakes area playing solo steel drum in many of the lakes areas great tiki bars and yacht clubs! My solo schedule will be from late May to late September in the MN lakes area. I hope you'll come out and join me in a party - island style at the lakes!!
