THE DANNY SAVAGE BAND are an experimental OLD TIME band based around Concord, NH and rooted in Appalachian Mountain Music. We play a unique blend of original tunes, Appalachian mountain music (AKA old time music), traditional folk tunes, Americana, Country blues, Funk, Rock and Roll, Bluegrass and Newgrass music. Some of our musical influences include; John Prine, Hank Williams Sr., Jerry Garcia and David Grisman, Old & in the Way, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, the Grateful Dead, Billy Strings, Doc Watson, Appalachian fiddlers modern and old: Bill Richardson, Bruce Molsky, and Tommy Jarrell. Our music appeals to all ages. We look forward to sharing our music with you all.
The band consists of Brian Vastine on claw hammer banjo and vocals, Drew Williard on acoustic guitar, mandolin, and vocals, Jake Kallander on Electric Bass, Cody Howe on acoustic guitar and vocals, and Larry Houghton on fiddle, mandolin, acoustic guitar, and vocals.
