David McBride: Dave represents Trop Rock fans, as he has been a fan of this music before we called it Trop Rock. Dave was a fan of Trop Rock before it was known as Trop Rock. He started as a fan of Harry Bellefonte in the 50?s and years later, living in Texas and New Orleans, brought Country and Cajun elements into his mix of music appreciation. For the last ten years his music attention has focused on the work of independent singer/songwriters who embrace Trop Rock. He is always eager to help preserve and promote Trop Rock music and has been a welcome helping hand to many a Trop Rock artist. Last year he and his wife, Carolyn won the TRMA Fan of the year award. Dave lives in Punta Gorda, Fl with his wife Carolyn.
