It’s been a few years since we have released a studio recording and we’ve got some ambitious plans to get a lot of music recorded this year. It’s … Continue reading

“30TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR”

The year of 2014 will mark an important milestone in the career of David Davis and the Warrior River Boys. 2014 will be their thirty year anniversary as a touring band.

They have performed in forty-six states, the Bahamas and all Canadian Provinces at a majority of the largest outdoor festival events and many of the genre’s premier indoor venues. The … Continue reading

SILVER DOLLAR CITY

Hello all!! We just got back in from a great four day trip to one of my favorite places in the Country, Silver Dollar City, in Branson, MO. We worked there Memorial Day Weekend, Friday through Monday, at the Bluegrass and Bar-Be-Que Festival. This great event stretched from May 10th through June 3rd and was voted as the #1 Bluegrass Event of 2011 and is nominated for the same award this year. We did sixteen shows to large and appreciative audiences, (I have some great pics on my David Davis Facebook Page). I was told that the crowds for the … Continue reading

PASSIN’ THRU WACO (GEORGIA, THAT IS…..)

We had a fun trip yesterday, fun for many different reasons. Robert Montgomery, Stan Wilemon and myself were booked as a trio to play a venue called The Outpost Music Barn. It’s located around Tallapoosa, GA, in an area called Waco. My first time there and I believe Stan’s too, Robert has played there in years past. The Outpost is a great place to hear Bluegrass music, a real family atmosphere. If you’re in the area, you should stop in for a show!! There’s never too many trips where you leave home at noon and are back by midnight, that’s … Continue reading

Continuing On The Warrior’s Path To Phoenix And Beyond

xxxxxx CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS BLOG XXXXXXX So we’re ready to leave New Mexico and head to Phoenix, and the tow truck driver says “one of you guys can ride in the tow truck with my boy, the rest of you will have to ride with me in my truck, I’ll need to fill up the truck before we leave and you’ll need to pay for it”, “Sounds good I say”, just thankful to have a way to Phoenix. Let me tell you, that truck must have a gas tank the size of battle ship, and he only used “Ethel”, or … Continue reading

THE WARRIOR’S PATH (What Do You Think?) BILL SAGE > FIRST CALIFORNIA TOUR > BY THE TIME I GET TO PHOENIX AND SOOO MUCH MORE !!

Ever since getting the idea and wanting to start a regular correspondance (blog) with Bluegrass friends and acquaintances, I see that other folks have a “title” for their blog. So borrowing an idea from an old friend, Mitch Scott, I’ll name this blog “The Warrior’s Path”. Many of our friends will remember Mitch as being, not only a Warrior River Boy, but a partner with me for the first ten years of our travels, 1984 through 1994. We started a “Fan Club” for a few years back in the 90’s and we used “The Warrior’s Path” as the title for … Continue reading

When you get inside, you’ll immediately feel like you’ve time-travelled back a hundred years, to a time (“the good old days”) that your grandparents talked about, or maybe you’ve saw on … Continue reading

TWO NEW FACES

Hey Everybody !! If you haven’t seem our show in the last six months, you probably haven’t heard that DDWRB has a couple of new members. First, I’ll start with Stan Wilemon.

Alot of you might remember Stan as the group’s bass man in 1987, then 1990 through 1994, also a part of our 1993 Rounder recording, “Sounds Like Home” plus many of the recordings we did for Ray Davis’ Wango label in the early ’90’s. Stan has played a large role in the band since … Continue reading
