7:30 pm Friday June 4, 2021 "Night Moves"
The Davisson Brothers Band, hailed as Rolling Stone Country “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know,” boast musical foundations that are classic, obvious and etched in stone. Singer Donnie Davisson commands attention with his working-class, Van Zant-like vibe, and the rest of the band – including drummer Aaron Regester, guitar player extraordinaire Chris Davisson and bass player Rus Reppert – gives body to a punchy throw-down sound with echoes of the Marshall Tucker Band, Skynyrd, Bon Jovi, ZZ Top, Neil Young and 38 Special. The sonics are based in old-school rock ‘n’ roll, while the messages support all-American fundamentals: family, self-determination and satisfaction in a job well done. The Davisson Brothers Band have emerged as a regular component on the festival circuit including a performance at CMC Rocks the Hunter Festival in Australia that underscored their bona fide hit Down Under with “Po’ Boyz.” Their album Fighter, recorded with ace producer Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band), represents their show well. Donnie sings with ferocity, and the instrumental parts – from Chris’ convincing solos to Regester’s powerful backbeats – are delivered with sinewy directness.
