The Westfield Leader and The Scotch Plains – Fanwood TIMES
Dave DeLuca to Present
‘Songbook’ at Library
GARWOOD — Singer Dave
DeLuca will return to the Garwood
Public Library on Thursday, November 6, at 7 p.m., with a presentation of
his “Star Spangled Songbook.”
The songbook is a musical celebration of the great American composers and lyricists whose body of
work boosted the morale of the people
living through the deprivation of the
Great Depression, who went on to
fight in World War II, and those who
stayed behind to keep the war effort
going on the home front.
Mr. DeLuca is a lifelong New
Jerseyan who has been a professional
musician since 1977. In 1989 he
placed first in the annual ASCAP
New Songwriters Competition. After
several stints playing guitar and bass
and singing in several rock and punk
groups throughout New Jersey and
New York, he became a jazz/pop
singer in his own right. In addition to
this patriotic songbook, Mr. DeLuca
has several tribute shows that he performs throughout the area.
