A Brief History
Once vying for the "Big Time" Dave Arazmo and his band, "Arazmo" were a hard rock band from Tampa Bay. One of Fantasma Productions' (now Live Nation) most popular acts in South Florida. After coming off the road in 1990, the band settled in to focus on writing and recording in the hopes of securing a major record deal. They recorded several songs and released a CD titled "Notice to Appear". In 1992, the Arazmo band went to Los Angeles and showcased for Record labels and also for Bon Jovi manager, Doc McGhee.
As fate would have it, by 1992, the meteoric rise of the Seattle grunge scene, led by the success of Nirvana, had taken over rock music both on the radio and on MTV
(MTV used to play music videos) and the band's style of music was declining in popularity.
*Dave was featured on MTV in 1991 for winning the Orion Pictures, Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey "Air Guitar Contest" (a promotion for the movie starring Keanu Reeves). Dave "performed" an original that he wrote just for the contest. The Beach MTV segment is on YouTube with Dweezil Zappa and Dave Arazmo.
At home in Tampa Bay, Dave is widely recognized for his guitar proficiency. He was nominated for and won award's by local publications and music retailers such as Music Forum magazine, Jam magazine, Tampa Bay Music Network, Seminole Music's "Guitar Wars" and Guitar Center Tampa's "Guitarmaggedon".
That said, guitar proficiency is only one feature of the More is More band.
Dave's vision for the More is More band began in 2017. He wanted to build something musical, versatile and very entertaining playing timeless songs loved by millions - a band that can do almost anything while honoring the original artists. From Tom Petty to the Rolling Stones, from Duran Duran to Garth Brooks, the More is More band are surprising audiences every time they perform.
If you seek a simple "flavor of the month" dance band, there are tons of them to choose from.
If you desire something MORE - a live music experience with a talented group of performers playing classics like Gerry Rafferty's "Baker Street", Boz Skaggs' "Lowdown", Dire Strait's "Sultans of Swing" and an absolutely stunning, guitar-driven version of Charlie Daniels' "Devil Went Down to Georgia" - well, now you know who to see.
