Bumbershoot Flashback: The Shoot with Dave B

August 19, 2015

Local musicians know that they're on the road to success when they get asked to play Bumbershoot, the annual music and arts festival returning to Seattle Center this Labor Day weekend. During his first shot at "The Shoot", we followed then up-and-coming hip-hop artist Dave B through sound-check, interviews and prepping for his performance. 

Dave B hasn't always performed hip-hop.

"Grease to Beauty and the Beast," Dave B said. "So I guess that kind of sparked an ‘I want to be on stage’ type of thing, and music was just an excellent outlet.

Watch him on stage in the video above.
