On Friday night (April 25, 2014), I went to see Daily & Vincent at Niswonger Performing Arts Center in Greeneville, Tenn. This was not the first time I had see this band. So I thought I knew what to expect. Jimmy Fortune was scheduled to be there with them. I’d seen Jimmy before, so again, I thought I knew what to expect. Boy, was I In for a surprise.
The last time I saw Daily & Vincent, actually the last two times I saw them, they did their bluegrass show. I got to see them, and Jeff Parker on guitar and mandolin, and B.J. Cherryholmes on fiddle, and Jessie Barker on banjo – a lot of bluegrass music, and a lot of humor coming from Jeff and the group. The last time I saw Jimmy, the former member of the Statler Brothers was doing a solo act, and was singing all the songs we remember him for. He’s a great artist, and put on a great show.
What I did not expect to see at NPAC on Friday night was Jimmy actually joining the group. They didn’t do what they normally do, and Jimmy didn’t sing alone (for the most part). While the show was very good, it wasn’t what I was expecting. It started out being more like an ‘Alabama or Oak Ridge Boys Tribute Show’. When you add the bass vocals of Christian Davis to that talented group, you have the best. So, while I missed Darrin Vincent’s bass, and the fiddle and banjo in the band. It was still awesome entertainment.
I am still having problems with my camera, so most of the pictures in this post are from a friend, Kim Brown, who was a little closer to the stage than I was, and offered to lend her photos to us for this post. Here are a few more pictures from the show on Friday night, and one of Niswonger Performing Arts Center in Greeneville. This is a beautiful venue. Hope everyone who lives in the area has a chance to go there and see a show sometime soon.
