The family spent some time traveling cross country this summer. We went all the way to San Francisco and saw some great things along the way. Seeing the Grateful Dead house at 710 Ashbury Street was definitely a highlight. We were just a few decades too late to the party!

20 RIDE is American Country/Folk music at it's finest and they are taking audiences by storm. As Zac Brown's tour manager Paul Chanon said, "I had to do a double take the first time I saw him. I thought it was really Zac."

This is not a wig wearing, lip syncing, pretending to play tribute band. These are real players, doing the great music the way Zac does at all his concerts. Up close and personal, moving, and fun! With nine hit singles, two platinum-selling albums, and countless fans, Zac Brown is quickly becoming a country music legend. From traditional country to Caribbean rhythm, to sultry bedroom ballads, 20 RIDE brings all the best Zac has to offer. Pushing the limits of what their talents offer, there is something for everyone. Whether you love their mega-hits like "Chicken Fried”, "Colder Weather”, "Free", "Toes", "Highway 20 Ride" or many more, 20 RIDE will play all your favorites and some cool covers, too.


JUST ANNOUNCED: Patrick Davis & His Midnight Choir Return to Charleston Music Hall

IMG_2018.jpg

Patrick Davis is a singer, songwriter, artist & storyteller originally from Camden, South Carolina who has spent the last fourteen years making his musical mark in Nashville, TN. Patrick learned the finer points of music & performance growing up in a household that not only included a talented guitar playing father, but also an extensive record collection always readily available for his absorption. At the age of 16 Patrick joined his father Rusty on stage for his first ever performance and since that initial “gig” music has been the only job Patrick has ever held. 

After graduating from The University of South Carolina in 2000 Patrick moved to Nashville, TN where for almost 15 years he has continued to build his songwriting, artist and touring career. Patrick has released four well received full length albums, toured the US & Europe as both a headliner & support act for Darius Rucker, Jewel & others while also being employed as a staff writer for Warner Chappell Music Publishing & having over 50 songs recorded by artist like Jimmy Buffet, Lady Antebellum, Imelda May, Darius Rucker, Jewel, Robert Randolph, Guy Clark and many more. 

Patrick’s “Patrick Davis & Midnight Choir” is an 11-piece band featuring horns & background singers created by PD in early 2016 from both his own artistic vision & the soundscapes of his songwriting & performing heroes Van Morrison, Lyle Lovett & Bruce Springsteen. Davis borrowed the name “Midnight Choir” from a line in one of his favorite Leonard Cohen songs “Bird On a Wire” & since his eleven-piece outfit starting playing dates Davis & “His Midnight Choir” have witnessed growing congregations across the Southeast.
