The Sons of Champlin started in 1965 in Marin County, California, rising from the wreckage of the Opposite Six, a locally popular R&B band from the pre-Beatle era. “Six” members, Bill Champlin and Tim Cain, added Terry Haggerty and the first of a series of drummers and bass players. The new band was named for the “front” man, Bill Champlin. For a couple of years the Sons played as a five-piece band, working the college and high school dance circuit and the various clubs and bars in the Bay Area. Their playlist was mostly covers, some R&B such as “Midnight Hour,” and some commercial pop such as “Shades of Gray.” The Sons’ first record release, on Trident Records, was a single called “Sing Me A Rainbow”. It got a little local AM radio airplay. In 1967 the Sons of Champlin became a seven-piece band, adding a trumpet and more importantly, Geoff Palmer on keyboards, alto sax, and vibraphone. By this time the San Francisco scene included the Fillmore and Avalon ballrooms, and as the Sons joined that rock circuit, they earned a reputation as a group of R&B and jazz musicians far above the caliber of the electrified folk-rockers who formed the core of the scene.

    Music

    David Luning's music has been called “gritty, joyful, soulful Americana.” His earnest songwriting, lively story telling, and rich, captivating voice would have you believe you’re listening to a hardened veteran of Nashville.  His debut album Just Drop on By was released to rave reviews and has garnered Luning numerous film placements as well as many songwriting awards. His live show has been best described as high energy, fun, yet with a full spectrum of dynamic emotional content.”
