He collaborated with artists including: Jay Z, Alicia Keys, Nas, Billy Joel, Aretha Franklin, kd lang, David Sanborn, Billy Ocean, and Little Jimmy Scott. Over the years, David performed on many Composers Concordance concerts, including several premieres of his own distinctive compositions.

The Waters Project
Featuring David Lee Waters
Saturday, September 12th @ 7pm-8pm
The Bitter End

The Waters Project is an original rock band from NYC founded in the fall of 2014 by songwriter David Lee Waters as a creative outlet for the original music he has envisioned over his 40+ years as a highly regarded live and session guitar player in his musical community.

Much of his inspiration comes from his favorite artists such a Pete Townsend, Tom Petty, Neil Young/Crazy Horse, John Hiatt, Pretenders, and many others. After spending many years as a sideman for a variety of songwriters in his home town of Cleveland , Boston and NYC David has finally organized a band of fellow veteran NYC players to realize the "sounds in my head" as he likes to put it.

The Waters Project will debut at The Bitter End and perform some of their newest songs.

The band consists of David Lee Waters on Lead Guitar and vocals, Tony Oppenheimer on Rhythm Guitar, Phil Ligori on Drums and Danny Reisbick on Bass.

Cutting his professional teeth in the very exciting days of Bostons late 70s and 80s legendary club scene…..many of Davids past musical exploits have lead him to some very memorable moments – from playing the Beacon Theater opening for world class acts, audition recommendations for the Pretenders and Billy Squier to gigs at classic NYC clubs such as The China Club, CBGBs, Danceteria , Continental, Arlenes Grocery the Rodeo Bar and beyond. One very unique gig even led him to playing a private party for none other than Peter Max….

The "mission statement" for The Waters Project is pretty simple: “ Inspired original guitar rock under the influence of my heros…..played as beautifully and with as much honestly as possible”.

Tickets: $10
Ages: 18+, (everyone must have Government Issued I.D.)
