Dovydas to Play at Sagebrush Cantina International singing star Dovydas (previously known as David Smash) will take the stage at the Sagebrush Cantina in Calabasas on Friday, February 3.
The Lithuanian-born musician, composer, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist appeared on such shows as Lithuania’s Got Talent and Ring of Young Talents.
He started playing guitar at the age of 13, heavily inspired by a blues CD owned by his father. Among his notable influences he lists Johnny Cash, Ray Charles, Elvis Presley, James Brown, Jerry Lee Lewis, Nat King Cole and Dean Martin. During school he formed his first band David Smash and the Smash Band. Dovydas has headlined major music festivals in Lithuania and Poland: “Visagino Country 2010,
“Bliuzo Naktys 2010,” “Wegorzewo 2011” and “Most Rockowy 2010.” The Dovydas Band competed at the International Blues Challenge 2016, and made it to the semi-finals, something not achieved before by any Lithuanian-born person.
The now-Calabasas resident will bring his Americana, blues and rock and roll to the Cantina from 8 to 11 pm.
