DV8 is Greater Cincinnati’s premiere musical entertainment provider.  Comprised of 7 of Greater Cincinnati’s most talented musicians and vocalists, DV8 focuses on the great music you remember – music you can rock and groove to – from the 70’s to today.

DV8 has opened for a multitude of national acts such as Eddie Money, Little River Band, Yoso (members of Yes and Toto), Loverboy, John Waite (The Baby’s), Starship, Pure Prairie League, Lou Gramm, The Gin Blossoms, Night Ranger, Styx and Atlanta Rhythm Section just to name a few.  DV8 can provide quality entertainment for nearly any venue from clubs to large outdoor shows, and has a concert quality sound system to handle even the largest of events.

DV8 excels at outdoor concerts and other outdoor events.  We have performed for hundreds of thousands of people at such places as Red, White and Blue Ash, Oktoberfest Zinzinnati, Newport on the Levee, Taste Of Cincinnati, as well as a multitude of church festivals and special events.  DV8 rocks and brings the party to the event, but is also mindful of the family friendly nature of these shows.

DV8 is also a powerful partner for your corporate party or gathering.  We have performed at various corporate events for the Newport Aquarium and other notable corporate customers.  DV8 makes sure everyone has a great time, and our play list is particularly suited for varied audiences.

Whatever your event – from clubs to concerts and everything in between, DV8 is your musical partner.  Contact us to see how DV8 can help make your night or event special!
