David M’ore

Influenced by guitar greats, M’ore stays true to his own style.

Performing on a custom-made Strat carefully modified to his specifications, David M'ore demonstrates his acclaimed six-string technique on both originals and cover tunes. On Saturday, Oct. 26, at 9 p.m., M’ore will be performing at R Place Music Club, 2562 Old First St. in Livermore.

"I love to pay tribute to those who influenced me, but at the same time, I like to be true to who I am," said M'ore, whose influences include guitar greats Jimi Hendrix, Ritchie Blackmore, Joe Satriani, Johnny Winter, and Albert King.

M’ore is presently riding a musical hot streak that has not only seen him headline the big yearly Kern River Rock 'N Blues Festival in September, he was also recently named an Endorsee for world-renowned Ernie Ball guitar strings, joining other guitar contemporary greats, including Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck.

From the beginning, traditional Blues and British Neoclassical Hard Rock played a vital role in the evolution of the David M'ore style. Born in Argentina, he picked up an old guitar that his Godfather bought him for his eighth birthday and immediately began to explore vintage records.

"The aggressive sound of the guitar drove me emotionally insane," M'ore said. "I still listen to those old records from Johnny Winter. That's where it all began."
