SW Florida's Newest and Hippest Dance Band!

 

 

 

 

 

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 18").  The band St. James originally started as  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 guitar.

They finished recording the St. James CD, "Americanman" and hit the road.  Promoting the CD,  Danny toured the casino circuit 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 named, "Heavy Tilly" after their grandmother.  She wasn't heavy, but the band was!  They performed on the Headliners stage in Cleveland's Flats for WNCX's 98.5 FM's Classic Rock Concert Series opening for national acts such as The Tubes, Head East, the Romantics, and Blue Oyster Cult.

 

 

Early in his career, Danny gained experience performing in Cleveland, Ohio with "Rock -n- Remember" which was an Oldies and Mowtown band that his mother fronted as the female vocalist.  Bill Wischmeier on guitar and vocals. Danny's younger brother Mike played drums for the band. Mike later switched to keyboards and formed the Time Trax band in which Dezi Dorsey played for quite a few years.  Mike still performs with Time Trax

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 family.

Danny first  started picking up music listening to his father play.  By age 6, he was sitting-in with his dad's band as "Little Liberace" playing blues solos on the Hammond B-3 organ to the amazement of audiences.
