David Beevers (formerly Dave Dodd) is a long term associate member of the veteran British synthpop group The Human League.

Since 1990 he has been the band's studio manager and resident engineer both in the studio and on tour. Unusually for an engineer he is also part of the band's on stage line up and a familiar face of many gigs over the years. His principal job is the programming and sequencing of the various synthesisers that the band use on stage. While the band play he controls the sequencing from behind a console of twin Apple Macintosh PC's in the centre of the stage. In addition he often provides incidental vocals, covering for Philip Oakey on tracks such as One Man in My Heart when Oakey is off stage changing or preparing for the next track. Recently, since the “Dare! '07” tour he has started providing incidental electronic percussion.

He is also informally the band's fan liaison officer, an all round band facilitator and administrator in many off stage fields. [ Windle, Rob [http://www.league-online.com/biography1.html Human League Band Biography] ]
