David Trueblood was born in Lafayette, Indiana in June. He brings sunshine to his family and friends like a walking summer day. He tells us, "I received my first real set of drums at Christmas when I was 12. My mom hid them around the house & I had to solve clues to find them. I set them up like the ones I saw on TV. Now, my favorite music show at that time was The Monkees. I didn't know until later that Micky played left-handed! I had set them up for left hand playing and that's how I started. When my Mother enrolled me in a music class, I learned that I was right hand dominate.

"The first song I learned was "Green Grass of Home" by Jim Reeves. Our record players speaker was blown so I would listen to the music coming from the needle and then play the song on my drums. I learned the drum solo from Iron Butterfly's "In A Gadda Da Vida" the same way."

"I started out playing drums at basketball games and in school competitions with the school jazz band. I played a little while I was stationed in Hawaii with the army. When I moved to Texas, I brought what drums survived the wait from my tour. I bought the rest from pawn shops to complete my set."

David Trueblood "I was involved with several heavy rock and classic bands in the 80's. I toured most of the central Texas area. In 1986 I started to run sound for a local singer, Mary Jo Pierce and her Precious Few. That opened the world of country music for me."

"I've been a sound tech for major and local acts. The most memorable artist I opened for is George Ducas, he treated us like we were special. I was with the Outlaws from 1988 to 1992. Bobby Joe Mosley was my best local influence and one of my best friends. After that I joined Diamondback for several years."

"I started a few projects, like Christine Black and the Renegades, Octane 420, Santa Fe and The Renegades. Out of two of those projects I am fortunate to have been with great musicians and we have over twenty songs registered in The Library of Congress."

"In 2010 I met a musician hosting an open mic at a local club. Little did I know that would open up a new chapter in my life. His name is Dennis Hoffman and he fronts the band Mo' Bluz. I now have the freedom and opportunity to combine my past experiences with Motown, blues, rock (heavy and classic), country, Latin and funk. These influences gave me the tools I need to move forward in the blues style that we are creating. We call it "TEXAS BLUE DIRT"."
