David Hungate


In the music business you can’t always plan where your career takes you. Most of the time it just falls into place over the course of the many years. Our guest has had the good fortune of having the pieces of his career fall into place by calling the right shots at the right time. He is the consummate session musician and one of the most respected bassists in the industry. As an original member of the rock band Toto, David Hungate provided a rhythmic anchor to a band that delivered classic songs as Rosanna and Africa to the world. From his beginnings with Sonny and Cher to his Grammy-winning Toto work, to Randy Travis, David has never been removed from the A-list of bassists because of his ability to provide the right groove for the right music. He left the LA scene for all the right reasons, and along the way built a network of premier accounts in Nashville that just won’t stop calling such as Toby Keith, April Barrows, Brooks & Dunn, Neil Diamond, Manhattan Transfer, Reba, Eddie Rabbitt, Linda Ronstadt, Boz Scaggs and Kenny Rogers. We welcome David Hungate to Inside MusiCast.

David Garfield


The Los Angeles based keyboard player David Garfield has a long career as a musical director, arranger, composer and producer behind him, and he is still one of the ‘Cats’ that you always see playing local clubs such as The Baked Potato, Cafe Cordiale, or La Ve Lee. You’ll also find him on world tours with big acts like George Benson. Garfield has also performed at Keyboard Magazine’s 20th Anniversary Concert at the NAMM show alongside Bruce Hornsby and Joe Zawinul; played at the Modern Drummer magazine’s anniversary concert with Steve Ferrone; scored the syndicated TV show Sentinel; sat in with Isaac Hayes and The Blues Brothers at a House of Blues benefit concert; written music for the trailer for the Billy Crystal-Robin Williams comedy Father’s Day with James Newton-Howard, and finally the recording sessions for the Tribute to Jeff release. He is the founder of the band Los Lobotomys and Karizma and continues to influence the music world around us.
