About David Langlois:
David Langlois was born in Paris, France, where he took up the drum set at age fifteen. At nineteen, he was hired as a full time musician to play the washboard and drum set. It was then that David invented his signature washboard instrument and polished his unique washboard technique, which immediately attracted several avenues of professional work.
