Welcome folks! Hope you're all staying safe in these crazy times! Well for me (and I'm sure you too) music has ALWAYS been a way to soothe through rough times and now is no exception.
I've been very busy recording in my studio for musicians all over the world and doing quarantine sessions with some world class musicians. I just finished one with 14 members of my group the Demolition Brass Band featuring former Tower of Power lead singer Tommy Bowes playing TOPs 'Soul Vaccination'. Check it out on the videos page. I think you'll love it.
My brand new jazz album "The Grind" is done and will be released shortly (current situation pending). It features a stellar cast of musicians including Jon Cowherd (Piano), Hans Glawischnig (Bass), EJ Strickland (Drums), and Jim Seeley (Trumpet). Really excited about it!
Also, be sure to check out my New Orleans inspired group The Demolition Brass Band. We had been performing regularly in the area and will be again soon. I also perform quite a bit with my good friends New Orleans' own the Dirty Dozen Brass Band and my next project will feature a few of them on the album.
Check out the Events page for more info for all 3 of my groups: BUTTA, Demolition Brass Band, and the Dave Mullen Group as well as other gigs I'm doing too.
You can also hear and purchase my critically acclaimed album "MAHONEY'S WAY" on ROBERTS MUSIC GROUP (RMG) featuring notables Nile Rodgers, Mark Egan, Marc Ribot, Victor Jones, and a gospel choir to boot! The album can be purchased here to through PayPal. Contact me for more details.

He first became interested in music playing his father’s extensive collection of 45s and LPs from his DJing days in the late 50s and early 60s. As a child prodigy, he traveled to Paris and Canada at the age of 14 and was recognized early on for his musical prowess, garnishing awards that included a scholarship to the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. While enrolled, he studied with the "guru" of woodwind teachers Joe Viola, along with George Garzone, Bill Pierce and Andy McGhee. After graduating, David won a 1988 Boston Music Award and moved to New York shortly thereafter. That relocation turned out to be a fruitful one, soon performing locally and abroad. Some of his credits include appearing on MTV, Live at Five, CBS, the Fox network and writing for PBS. While in New York, Dave found himself in the company of now Rock n’ Roll Hall of fame members, the original Funkadelic, Eddie Hazel, Billy “Bass” Nelson, Jerome “Flashlight” Brailey and others. His critically acclaimed album “Mahoney’s Way” which features Nile Rodgers, Marc Egan, Marc Ribot, Victor Jones, Abe Fogle, the True Fellowship Gospel Choir from Brooklyn.
Presently, Dave has just finished an incredible new jazz album that features Jon Cowherd (piano), Hans Glawishnig(bass), EJ Strickland (drums) and guest Jim Seeley (trumpet) and mixed and co-produced by Jeff Jones.
