- Bass Guitar, Vocals
Dave Ongena’s interest in music began at the age of 12 when he was bitten by the "music bug".
Born in Chatham Ontario, Dave has lived all across Canada and formerly worked in aviation as an airline captain before transitioning to life as a full time musician. His favourite music genre is rock but he also enjoys R&B, funk and pop music. His influences range from 70's to contemporary pop-rock. Dave has received formal bass instruction from local legends and has recorded at several leading studios with various projects. He is also an accomplished songwriter. Dave played solo acoustic sets (guitar/vocals) at Marc Joseph's shows and there was a mutual respect between the two. Dave’s interests extended to the bass guitar and in 2009, Marc invited him to play bass full time for The Marc Joseph Band.
