David Rea is the keyboardist/Rhythm guitarist in the band. He has played music his whole life and his family has a video of him playing his first ever song at 3 years of age “The bungle bees”. Due to age David couldn’t say bumble correctly. It was all uphill from there however, David has played in countless bands including “Diversity”, “Jam ‘n’ Toast” and more. He has played piano for 16 years and Guitar for 12. The biggest venue he has played music at was the Christchurch town hall where he played piano in the orchestra for “The big sing”. When David was in his year 13, he formed a company called MooSick with Neema who promoted upcoming musicians and ended up winning 4 awards. He also got selected by The Lion Foundation to compete in the NZ young Enterprise competition and won best young entrepreneur in the South Island region.
