March Headliner: DAVID DAVIS and the WARRIOR RIVER BOYS A Southern Soul Bluegrass Music Band
carrying an Alabama family tradition, David Davis and the Warrior River Boys offer audiences a rare glimpse at the role of the frontman in American music. In Chicago Blues, it was Muddy Waters and the legendary Howlin’ Wolf. In Bluegrass music, it was Bill Monroe. Rather than operating under trendy “hit” oriented marketing schemes, frontman mandolinist David Davis simply nurtures his roots with integrity, tonal depth, and prose. After a couple of Rounder label projects in the early ‘90’s, David and the band snapped rave reviews with their self-titled 2004 release on Rebel Records – “….sure-fire picking and train whistle harmonies.” USA Today. Their newest 2006 Rebel release, “Troubled Times”, is imbued with the innate sense of purpose that defines David and The Warrior River Boys: carrying an Alabama family tradition.

The monthly show and jamming is free, and is held at the Johnny Arolfo Civic Center, 300 W. Walker, League City. The stage bands begin playing at 7:00 PM, but pickers are welcome to bring their instruments and come earlier to jam. Three jam rooms are available, including a slow jam for beginners. The BABA kitchen sells tasty, inexpensive food and beverages (NO ALCOHOL) at regular shows. We also offer bluegrass merchandise for sale, and have door prizes and raffles at every show.
