Danny has performed as a touring musician with Jaime St. James of Black 'n Blue (80's hairmetal band with MTV hits that include "Miss Mystery" and "Hold on to

The Glorious Things with Danny's cousin Billy Morris on guitar.
Jaime then asked Danny to play keyboards for the
project. Shortly after, Billy got a call to tour with Warrant, Billy
accepted and The
Glorious Things became St. James with Jimmy Maquire covering Billy's spot on

along with many rock venues and concert clubs until 2002. St. James co-headlined shows with Warrant, Ratt,
Alice Cooper, Cheap Trick, Keel, and 38 Special.
One of Danny's side projects with his cousin Billy was

Danny has a
lineage of music in his genes that can be traced back to his great grandfather
who played the violin. Danny's grandmother, Tillie Morris, played the
clarinet in an all girl polka band called "The Gayettes" and performed on live
radio before the invention of TV. Tillie and William Morris had 3 sons,
Billy, Danny, and Tristan who are all well known musicians in the Cleveland area
and still perform in the band "Eddie & the Edsels.". Bill
Senior and Dan Senior
performed with their band "The Rapid Transit" as the house band on
"The Upbeat TV Show" in the early 70s. Danny is the son
of Dan Senior. Got all that? Let's just say it's a musical
