Dave then joined his first band and wrote instrumentals and songs for the group "Poor Tom's Poetry Band" in the early 1970's. This group played a lot of major venues around Melbourne including Sunbury 1974 Pop Festival and also introduced Dave to recording, one of his songs "I'll Travel With You" being used on a Christian television Ad. Then he formed and wrote for the zany theatre restaurant based duo "Cool Water" with Anthony Leonard which turned into the influential cult band "Yasmin and the Tea Leaves".
