Yes, we know it might be cold, but you know Daryl is going to be laying down some hot licks! It won't take long for the body heat generated by the dancers to steam up the windows in the lobby...
Daryl Davis has been a fixture on the DC music scene, and part of the swing dance scene here since it's beginning. He's known as DC's favorite Boogie Woogie man and it'll only take you a few bars to realize why!
Not familiar? To quote his musician bio, "Both Pinetop Perkins and Johnnie Johnson, considered to be the greatest Blues & Boogie Woogie and Blues and Rock’n’Roll pianists respectively, both have claimed DARYL as their godson. They have both praised his ability to master with authenticity a style that was popular 20 years before he was born, progressing through the styles of many pioneers including Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino and beyond. It was this ability that landed DARYL in the piano slot for The Legendary Blues Band (which was the Muddy Waters band) and the piano slot for Chuck Berry. Both positions were once held by Perkins and Johnson." (You can check out music clips at http://www.daryldavis.com/cd_sound.html
