Digg is a unique and progressive fusion of rock, blues, funk, and jazz, blending styles to create a diverse, yet cohesive sound in their quickly growing catalog of original music. Inspired and personal song writing, well chosen, well executed covers, and great musicianship come together into a high-energy live performance that leaves audiences needing more. The band’s wide range of appeal brings together fans of all different types of music, resulting in a steadily and quickly growing Digg family.

Entering their second year of performing Digg continues to add to their original and covered repertoire, honing their live performance into a memorable experience.
Arkansas Dave
"Arkansas" Dave Pennington was born and raised in the piney swamps of South Arkansas. Bred on blues and rock n roll, Dave cut his teeth playing in dive bars and the best honky tonks Arkansas has to offer. Soon, Dave found himself in cahoots with a bunch of Texans, dubbing the traveling soul, Arkansas Dave.

The sound of Arkansas Dave is very much rooted in the music created by his predecessors. From the blues to gospel to rock n roll, his work comes full circle showcasing his raw talent. A self taught musician, Dave's songs are interestingly original, blended with the humble sounds of the South. Since his relocation to Austin, Texas, he has played with several Texas artists including Guitar Shorty, the Hard Pans (Jimmy Smith & Claude Bernard of the Gourds), Mickey White, Dr. Zog, Kari K and was the band leader/drummer for his own group, Ouachita ('wah-shi-tah). From the muddy bayous of South Arkansas to the Hill Country of Texas, this vagabond sees the world through music.

His music career has led him across the United States into Canada and to Japan to study taiko under Art Lee and the late, great Daihachi Oguchi Sensei. As the next chapter of Arkansas Dave's career unfolds, the world will hear the other side of his musical personality.
