violin & ship-to-shore radio
David Levesque was born at early age in Clearwater, Florida because
he wanted to be close to his mother. When he was 10 years old, his
parents gave him a violin (they told him it was a poodle), and he
was soon earning a living by his skill, as his neighbors paid him
not to practice.
At the age of 15, he won his first major prize, though unfortunately
it wasnt for making music. He discovered, in 1983, that Oregon
was the greatest place to live on Earth, though he spends most of
his time these days at sea, entertaining on cruise ships in exotic
ports of the world as a comedy violinist. During those rare days
that he finds himself back in the Pacific Northwest, he happily
wanders Laurelhurst Park wearing flannel pajamas, dictating novels
in languages he does not speak and composing operas no one in their
right mind would ever perform.
His lifelong ambition is to be professor of history at an accredited
womens college in the Columbia Gorge and to see his name in
print anywhere besides the Police Blotter.
No cats were harmed during the stringing of his instrument.
