Dave Dreiwitz, Ween's Bass player, was born in New York City to jazz musician parents. At the age of 19, Dave joined the Hoboken, New Jersey based psych rock band Tiny Lights, his first band out of high school. In 1986, while attending Rutgers University he met fellow schoolmate and drummer Scott Byrne and started the rock band Instant Death in 1991.
