Bluegrass music star David Davis and his Warrior River Boys will bring their 30th anniversary tour to Everett’s Music Barn in Suwanee.

David Davis, an Alabama native and 2010 inductee into The Alabama Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame, is widely recognized as one of the foremost practitioners of the Monroe mandolin technique. His interest in old-time and bluegrass music grew organically from a musical family, both his father and grandfather were players and singers. His uncle, Cleo Davis, was Bill Monroe’s original Blue Grass Boy.

Davis has traveled and performed as front man of the Warrior River Boys since 1984. The band also includes Marty Hays playing bass, Robert Montgomery on banjo, Stan Wilemon on guitar and Ben Sanders on fiddle.

Some of their more recent album releases include “Troubled Times” in 2006 and ” Two Dimes And A Nickle” in 2009. Both were highly acclaimed and offer listeners a look at the band’s musical evolution.

Everett’s Music Barn has been a fixture on the bluegrass scene for over 40 years. Everett’s is family oriented, there’s no smoking or drinking allowed. Patrons are encouraged to bring an instrument and visit Everett’s Home to hear and join pickers from beginners to professionals learning to play Bluegrass from each other.

Everett’s Music Barn is located at Stonecypher Road in Suwanee. Davis and his band will play on Saturday, Aug. 2 at 8 p.m. Admission is $15 donation.
