Dave Menza

Dave was born on July 21, 1990 in Orange County, California. The youngest in the family, Dave is a beloved son, brother, and friend.

To know Dave is to know a great, pure heart; one that brakes for snakes, makes kids laugh, and doesn't litter. He's an avid animal advocate who's never met a creature he didn't like, and his Netflix queue will hint at a serious obsession with documentaries, plant life, and the occasional re-watch of Pulp Fiction.

After high school, college, and a few tattoos, Dave became a member of the road crew for British punk band 'The Adicts' in 2012, later joining the band as their bassist. For the last four years, Dave has played with the Adicts on several world tours and on their latest studio album, making friends and memories across the globe.

Dave was involved in a car accident on September 17, 2017 and sustained life-altering spinal cord injuries. Still in ICU, Dave has undergone several surgeries, and the complex nature of his injury needs to be closely monitored.

Due to the severity of his injuries, we are raising funds that will be used to purchase the necessary mobility instruments and specialized equipment that he will needs as he continues his rehabilitation.

Thank you sincerely for your donation and for your good thoughts; Dave is in good spirits, and appreciates the well wishes and contributions from all.
