Dave Hooper

Dave Hooper started as the voice of The Little Green Sprout from the Jolly Green Giant Commercials.

He used to go to work with his dad, who writes music for TV commercials. When his voice changed, and he realized he couldn't sing, Dave decided he had to take up an instrument. Drums seemed like the right instrument to torment his parents with.

Dave attended North Texas State University for 2 years, and then realized college was for sissies. Not really. He studied with Peter Erskine, Gregg Bissonette, Steve Houghton, Joe Porcaro, David Garibaldi, Tom Brechtlein, and spent many hours jamming in his garage with roommate, Gary Novak.

Dave's Dad couldn't wait to use him as a drummer on his commercials, so at the age of 17, Dave began his studio drumming career.

Some of his career's highlights have been working with Herbie Hancock, Sheryl Crow, Lee Ritenour, The Rippingtons, David Byrne, Warren Hill, Joe Sample, The Manhattan Transfer, Chaka Kahn, Jeff Kashiwa, and James Ingram.

For the past 10 years, Dave has developed a successful Internet Solutions company, HOOPER.COM, creating websites for many online record labels, solo artists as well as million dollar ecommerce companies. Some of his clientele include VITAMINS.COM, APPLE.COM, INTELLIGENTMEDIA.COM, WARRENHILLCRUISE.COM, ALLENHINDS.COM, GORDONGOODWIN.COM, POPJAZZ.COM and many others.
