Ham Jam House Concert
Danny Santos and Wes Green
Danny Santos will play a fine acoustic House Concert Friday, November 11th at
7:00 PM. He and Wes Green will perform mostly originals and will show you some handsome South
Texas style pickin'.
Danny Santos, singer/songwriter, melds the inspiration of his Chicano heritage, a
musical legacy ranging from Hank Williams to the Beatles, and a Texas-sized determination
to create a unique mix of country/folk tinged with bluegrass and the blues. His
songs illuminate the joys of true love, the woes of love lost, and the weary longing of
those still searching for love. It's a style forged from maturity, grit and drive. Danny
possesses a strong expressive voice and a compelling on stage presence, whether
appearing solo or fronting his all-acoustic band, Los Bluegrass Vatos. Born in South
Texas, He began playing the guitar at age thirteen. Singing and songwriting seemed
to naturally follow soon after. Heavily influenced by the likes of Townes Van Zandt,
Guy Clark & that whole Texas singer/songwriter genre, he continues to create his own
brand of quality Texas music.
