Influenced by Jimmy Reed, and Freddie King, who he jammed with when he was growing up Popa developed his own style, an eclectic blend of music and vocals Popa calls Rockin' Blues. With a seven octave voice that can be described as pretty, reminiscent of Neil Diamond with a Stevie Ray Vaughn flavor, Popa, Dave Montano has achieved world wide recognician. A Native American, "Popa" was once told by Deacon Jones, "Who has more right to sing the Blues, than the Native American?" "Popa" was educated at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.

"Popa" shows a modest, unassuming style on stage. A true professional Dave acquired the name "Popa" for his organizational and management skills and his no bull attitude. An accomplished trumpet player, Dave had to give up the horn because of a war injury , however, he still plays one of the meanest harps you would ever want to hear. Dave began performing with his Uncle on the radio at the tender age of three.

Although no one wants a broken heart, "Popa" says you can't play the blues until you have your heart broken. The song Walkin' With My Baby speaks of his ex-wife's drinking problem.She died. Dave spends his time working on his home-site, playing with and training his dogs, working on repatriating his Uncle Geronimo (Help us repatriate Geronimo. According to this story about the secret Skull and Bones Society (an intimate peak at the US Ruling Class) Geronimo’s skull is with these people. If, after reading this story, you are as appalled as I am, we ask you to express your opinion to President George W. Bush and ask that he personally take responsibility to return Geronimo to us. This has gone on long enough. We want his remains returned.)

and writing music for his upcoming CD.
