Danny Paisley at Jenny Brook

Danny Paisley always gives his all, never a let down, high energy all the way. He did four sets over the weekend,all of them sensational. From heartbreakers like "The Room Over Mine," which is the title of his new Rounder release,and "The Convict and The Rose," to lightning fast tunes such as "I'm Leaving Detroit." Dan and his superpicking sidekicks deliver raw bluegrass with soul and deep felt emotion that keeps the audience either on the edge of their chairs or dancing in place. After inviting Danny on stage during their set and having him sing one, Adam Steffey remarked,"I think I just lost my liver or something," alluding to the pure power of his voice on the high parts. This band always leaves you wanting more even after four sets in two days. Danny's band mates are: Donnie Eldreth Jr. playing mandolin and lead or harmony vocals. Donnie is a gifted player and fine singer; The talented Bob Lundy on banjo and harmony vocals; Fine fiddle player Brother TJ Lundy, and Dans brother Mike Paisley holding it all together and Man, he can play the fire out of that bass. After the final set folks were screaming for more, just one more, Please.

  1. Well you can get another chance to see Danny and the boys at Podunk this year. He will be in the line-up for Saturday, August 2nd along with many other great performers. John being from Connecticut I would think you would already have your tickets to Podunk July 31 to August 3. Check out the great line-up at http://podunkbluegrass.net.
    Hope to see you there.

  2. Roger, I'll purchase them today, you have many of the best bands in Bluegrass today. Truth be told I've only been to your festival three times and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I have been to your indoor shows also, Mark Newton and Del McCoury. You do a fine job of promoting our music and I hope you'll continue to do so.
