Dave played his guitar alongside his harp and guitar playing brother Louis in The Aces, one of the most influential backing bands in the classic period of Chicago Blues. The brothers came from Mississippi, where they had played local dates with Robert Nighthawk, Sonny Boy Williamson II and Memphis Minnie. They moved to the Windy City in the mid-40s where they began playing house parties with harp player Junior Wells. When Fred Below joined them on drums, they began performing as the Four Aces, which was soon the hottest band in town, except for maybe Muddy Waters outfit. When Muddy’s harp player Little Walter wanted to go solo after his chart topping record ‘Juke’, Junior Wells joined Muddy’s band and the Myers boys became The Jukes and backed Little Walter on tour and on record.
