    For you country brass enthusiasts, I'm going down to Oglethorpe GA Saturday to play what could be the "last stand" of the Grammy winning Danny Davis & the Nashville Brass. I worked with Danny about 25 years ago for 5 yrs and haven't done it for a good while.

    Danny just turned 80 last month and is doing pretty good business mail ordering his CD's to people around the world. I just left Danny's house to pick up the gig info(he doesn't do email)and this is the sentiment he gave me regarding this engagement: "If we win, we will continue on, if not, I will dispense with this 45 minute daily practise of mashing my face against this horn and call it a day."

    Original drummer Terry Waddell will also be there along with a collection of other great Nashville pickers. Oglethorpe is near Ringgold just south of Chattanooga. If you wish to attend, PM me for directions or call the "Colonnade" @ (706)935-9000 ext 100 or 108. Two shows beginning @ 5:00 7/23/05.

    Wow...he's still doin' it! I remember him from when I was a kid. He was tremendously popular for awhile.

    Funny how he said it..."If we win".... :meh:
