Born and raised in Chicago, Kal’s recording career began as a teenager when, as a member of Kal David and the Exceptions, he was signed to a contract with King Records and later to Vee-Jay Records. Another member of the group was Peter Cetera, who later became the vocalist for a band known as Chicago.
Later on, Kal joined musical forces with guitarist Paul Cotton (Poco) to form the group, Illinois Speed Press recording two critically acclaimed albums for Columbia Records, Illinois Speed Press and Duet. ISP was so loved that these albums have recently been re-released by popular demand. Kal next formed the Fabulous Rhinestones and they recorded three well-received albums: Fabulous Rhinestones, Freewheelin’ for Paramount Records, and Rhinestones for 20th Century Records. In the mid-eighties Kal joined John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers as featured vocalist and guitarist, replacing Mick Taylor (of the Rolling Stones).
A move to Palm Springs, California in search of a more relaxed and creative environment resulted in a decision by Kal and wife/partner Lauri to open their own incredible Blues club, Blue Guitar. They successfully ran and performed there for more than 6 years. Now Kal is on his way for a small European tour and stopping in the Pacific NW on his way over! www.kaldavid.com
