THE DANNY SAVAGE BAND are an experimental Americana band based around Concord, NH. We play a lot of Jerry Garcia Band and Acoustic dead covers, Country blues, Funk, Rock and Roll, some old time, and R&B music.
Our music appeals to all ages, especially folks that love to dance! We look forward to sharing our music with you all. We play festivals, backyard barbecues, farmer's markets, weddings, bars, breweries, ski areas, and other listening audiences throughout the south/central regions of NH and Maine and beyond.
