Matthew Davidson  News

Sept. 20, 2011



The Matthew Davidson Band is headed to Texas! We will be performing LIVE in concert (is there any other way to perform than "live"?) this Friday, Sept. 23rd from 7:30 - 9:00 PM at the East Texas State Fair in Tyler. 



We'd like to welcome our new drummer, Kyle McClanahan! He's a sophomore at Caddo Magnet High and made his debut with us at the Greenwood Pioneer Heritage Festival. Kyle has learned an amazing number of our songs in a very short period of time. Thanks to John Hoffman of the Stiff Necked Fools, Kyle's drum teacher, for recommending Kyle to us!
