4 Days til Redmond Christmas!
7pm doors open to French Pearl Band – let’s talk about the French Pearl Band!
Some people are born with music in their blood, and Dana French is one of them. Born in Chicago, Dana’s father Wallace French established himself as a first pick drummer throughout the Chicagoland area. He played with such greats as: The Earnest Tubbs Band, Porter Wagner’s Band, and Buck Owens. Dana was there and met these giants of the industry, and this had a major influence on him. Playing guitar since the age of 7 and writing songs almost as long has given Dana a wealth of songs to draw from.
Dana has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with such well known acts as: The Fabulous Thunder Birds, Jimmy Vaughn, Dickey Betts, Robert Plant, Joan Baez, Joe Jackson, and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Stevie and Dana became friends instantly and later spent many hours playing together.
In the late ’80s, Dana continued to work throughout the tri-state area. This time he was playing music closer to his soul. His unique style allowed Dana to work with the top artists of the day, including Robin Trower, Ronnie Montrose, Lonnie Brooks, Koko Taylor, Mick Taylor, Lonnie Mack, Buddy Miles, and many more.
Don’t miss Dana with Matt Pearl at the Redmonds Annual Christmas Show at Fitzgerald’s Fri. Dec, 23 at 7pm!
