Other credits include four full length albums with the band "Bar 61", and many of the songs on these albums have been used in television and film, such as Marvels "The Punisher".
Fleetwood Mac's reunion in 1997 inspired Lance to form "Rumours", and the band's success has endured for 22 years and counting due to Lance's hard work.

Dave is from the North Shore of Ohio. In addition to his work with Walt Sanders & The Cadillac Band, he is in demand as a freelance bassist with a wide variety of regional bands and musical acts.
David began his professional music activities first by studying drums, but ultimately found his musical voice with the bass guitar. His great ear and solid chops are deeply appreciated and respected by his peers. Keyboardist, Pete Ford writes, “I come from a family of bass players, David is one of my favorite rock bass players to gig with. When David is on the gig I automatically play to my fullest because I don't have to worry about the bass part, it'll be there. I know he's done his homework and the musical foundation will be solid."
It might not be immediately obvious but he truly leads the band on stage with his solid musicianship and leaves us the space to do what we want over the top. His energy is right, and the musical pocket is deep with David on the gig. Also he reacts to the subtle musical gestures we all tend to do to make it fun on stage.
He is deeply informed by having listened to and worked out bass lines to hundreds of songs on his own. It allows us all to open up and really dig into the music.”
Dave also enjoys recording original music creations in his spare time.

Mr. Matt Corkins
Matt grew up in a musical family. Learning to imitate or create has always been a part of his life. So finding that sound as an original member, Rumours has been a great passion for him.
It may be even sureal, the sounds that take you back to memories you haven't had in such a long long time. Learning to feel and share those precious moments once again with each other.
Throwing a piece of himself into enjoying everything about the sound of Fleetwood Mac. Simple yet evolved enough for each song to have its own little things about it that everyone likes.
From piano to organ or to maybe even clavichord or flute in the next song. There always seems to be something different that always keeps it interesting. Wrap all this up around totally finding that sound again. Letting it take you back to memories you've hadn't had in such a long long time
