Danny & Essence - Dynamic Americana Duo
Dont miss the Sonoma County debut of this amazing duo! Essence and Danny met recently at Dannys Allegiant Studio while Essence was recording her soon-to-be released new record. They had an immediate recognition of how well their voices and musical directions compliment each other. The result is a duets record that is almost complete and a slew of Northern California shows and National dates in the works. Reminiscent of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash and other great male /female duos, this pair is a powerful emerging voice on the Americana landscape.
With their own special combination of Americana, blues, country and originals, this pair is a guaranteed crowd pleaser. They've been captivating audiences in San Francisco and Marin County with their impressive and heartening performances, and we are thrilled to welcome them to Sonoma County's acoustic sweet spot in October.
Tickets are $18/adv and $23 at the door. OCA is wheelchair accessible.
