Who is DV8

DV8 is Cincinnati’s premier musical entertainment provider. Comprised of 7 of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky’s most talented musicians and vocalists, DV8 focuses on the great music you remember, music you can rock and groove to from the 80’s to now.

DV8 also prides itself on having the most talented production team to ensure the audio, lighting, and stage delivers the best audience experience.

DV8 has been honored to open for a multitude of national acts such as Eddie Money, Little River Band, Yoso (members of Yes and Toto), Loverboy, John Waite, Starship, Pure Prairie League, Lou Gramm, Gin Blossoms, Styx, and Night Ranger just to name a few. DV8 is equally suited for nearly any venue from clubs to large outdoor shows, and can provide concert quality production to handle even the largest of events.

We have performed for hundreds of thousands of people at prominent local events such as Oktoberfest, Red White & Blue Ash, Food Truck Rally at Union Centre, Taste Of Cincinnati, Festival At Sycamore, Paul Brown Stadium, UC Health Stadium, Belterra Park, Turfway Park, Newport on The Levee, and countless local church festivals. DV8 brings the party to the event but is also mindful of the family friendly nature of our shows.

DV8 is also a powerful partner for your corporate party or gathering. We make sure everyone has a great time and tailor our play list to suit 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 event memorable.
