David Sikes (born April 25, 1955)[1] is an American musician, most notably the former bassist of Aldo Nova, Giuffria and Boston (band)[2]. Son of an Air Force veteran, Sikes grew up in Fairfield, California.[3]

When Giuffria disbanded, he was asked to audition for Boston and List of Boston band members, playing his first show on June 20, 1987 at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas during the Texxas Jam.[3]

Sikes co-wrote[1] "Surrender to Me", "Walk On", "Walk On (Some More)", "Magdalene" and "We Can Make It" on Boston’s 1994 release “Walk On" which peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard 200, spent 16 weeks on the charts, and was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America on September 8, 1994.[4][5]

A decade late, Sikes left the band to spend more time with his two young sons. While he still occasionally performs with bands, he's now an insurance agent[6] in Vallejo, CA.
