Dave “Snakeman” Runyan
Born and raised in Plainfield n.j. heard this blues coming from neighbors houses and it went right threw me ,my influences were misery and pain, got my first harp in 1969 ,and met Mr. Superharp, 3 years later he taught me about playing from my heart , and gave me a one word lesson (TONE). I am a true Plainfield boy living threw the riots of the 60"s fighting my way to school and fighting my way home my family goes back 3 generations in Plainfield.
Made my living driving 80,000 lb trucks and play blues to release my emotions, not for a dollar ! Blues a human condition from the heart from my soul ,if you ain't got them you can't fake them.
