Danny Daniels Visit

Internationally known song writer and worship leader, Danny Daniels, will be visiting our farm the first week in October. 

Danny cut his teeth in the music industry as the key songwriter for John Wimber, the man who put the Righteous Brothers on the map - prior to his emergence as a bona fide blue-eyed “blues brother”.

John Wimber wrote, produced and performed with Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield during their formative years until he started getting involved with Gospel and Christian music in the back half of the 70’s. Danny Daniels wrote a majority of the big songs for Wimber’s Mercy Records/Vineyard Music Group into the 90’s. Danny’s songs have become classics throughout that genre.

In 1993, feeling the call back to his deep roots in American music - blues, jazz, folk, country and rock & roll, Danny recorded Another Shade of Blue for Wimber’s label with moderate success. Regardless, Another Shade of Blue got Danny back out on the road as a touring act., performing nearly 200 dates a year, in roadhouses, on coffee house stages, churches and any other venue he could find.

Building an audience one person at time, Danny’s faithful following has supported him ardently into the 2000’s. An indie artist with strong CD sales and powerful live performances, Daniels has steadily grown into a Modern Blues powerhouse. One spin of his new CD, Leavin’ On the Special leaves no doubt!

Produced by Randy Rigby, guitarist/producer for Richie Furay (Buffalo Springfield, Poco), Bill Medley (Righteous Brothers) and many others, "Leavin’ On the Special" carries on in the tradition of artists such as John Mayall, Paul Butterfield, Mike Bloomfield and Robin Ford. Danny’s vocals are like aged brandy with his soulful harp playing strongly reminiscent of the late Paul Butterfield.

As a songwriter, Daniels is steeped in Americana; on this, his 5th solo recording, one can hear the spirit of the Mississippi Delta, the south side of Chicago, Beale Street in its heyday, and the heart of the night down in New Orleans. Danny is currently on tour promoting the new CD, performing on stages across America. Catch one of his shows, pick up Leavin’ On the Special and visit him at his web site

Danny will be performing at the Love Light Coffee House in downtown Versailles, MO Friday October 3rd beginning at 6pm.

On Saturday morning, October 4th, Danny will do a short performance at the Walmart in Versailles and then later perform on the main stage at the Apple Festival.

On Sunday morning, October 5th, Danny will be leading worship and giving the sermon at Lake Hills Community Church in Greenville, MO.

Sunday evening Danny will perform at a BBQ at the Restoration Farm just north of Stover, MO.
