About the Band
Room42 is a trio from Greensboro, NC treating their fans to classic hits from the 60's to today. Dave Stevenson's simmering guitar floats along the solid beats from Brad "Boom Boom" Allen while Freeman lays down the low end on the bass. The deep song bank takes the crowd back to a time when music touched their soul. Don't be surprised when a fan is brought up to help the band on a track or give "MORE COW BELL!" Room42 engages the crowd with their thoughtful mix of rock, folk, and blues which gets the masses to their feet and on the dance floor.
We play a variety of events including local music venues, corporate events, private parties, class reunions, and weddings. We provide our own sound system and equipment. We set up and sound check about an hour before the event, and can quickly break down following the show.

Guitar, Harp, Vocals
Dave Stevenson is on acoustic, bass and electric guitars, lead and harmony vocals as well as harmonica. Dave’s interest in music began when his tenor-banjo-playing father gave him a ukulele at a very young age. Dave went on to study the bass under respected Newport News, Virginia music teacher Ralph Matin while picking up guitar and banjo along the way. He played bass and guitar in his high school stage bands and the bass in his high school rock band. Dave has been playing music for over 40 years.
Drums, Percussion, Vocals
Brad Allen is on drums, congas and assorted hand percussion and lead and harmony vocals. At a young age, Brad was introduced to live band music, as his parents traveled throughout West Michigan playing and singing in a Praise Band. While very young Brad began arranging pots and pans on the kitchen floor and then playing them as a crude drum set. Brad played in various bands throughout school before joining up with Dave in 2004.
Charles started learning to play guitar in high school and began playing bass in an original music band at UNC-Chapel Hill. Charles enjoys a wide range of music from acoustic folk to reggae to heavy rock. His influences include Weezer, Mandolin Orange, Counting Crows, BB King, Tool, the Sword, Damian Rice, and the Lemonheads. After an extended hiatus, Charles is excited to be playing music again in Room42.
