DATV had a GREAT night at The HighDive playing for friends we haven’t scene in a LONG time! We usually play at Mike N Molly’s outside on their beer garden, but due to Midwest winter weather.. we felt it was way too long to be seperated from our Champaign friends… we opted for The HighDive.. It was a beautiful stage!
ThreeBird, a local talented band opened for us. Jammin’ Jimmy Bean, a dear friend is the drummer and one of the lead vocalist of the group. Michael sat in with them too! They sound great!

One of our many Champaign/Urbana friends came and took pictures..
Her name is Joanna Strauss of Joanna Strauss Photography (WEBSITE/FACEBOOK)
Here are some of her photos of the show.. I think it really captured our show.. Just hum a DATV song while looking through, if you missed the event.
Things are going GREAT here in Memphis. We did our first gig at Blues Hall and it was amazing! SO MANY familiar faces, tons of new friends, memories already forming, an outstanding amount of talent all over Beale St. Memphis is the BEST..
TOO many photos , I know.. I just can’t help myself. I am having WAY too much fun.
As always, it is a month filled with blessings, reminders, and hope. Blessings of a dream come true, sharing our love of music and words. Reminders of all the hard work this band has done while wanting and wishing our notes to be shared with our friends and fans. We are only hoping to have many more opportunities ahead of us to do just that… play music.
We love what we do, and we do this because of the happiness, we hope, it brings you.
We are heading to Memphis TN, Clarksdale MS, and Champaign IL. These three places are dear to our hearts. We have many friends and fellow artist we are excited to run into in these cities.
Mort, (our van), is cleaned, packed, and ready to go. Ipod are filling and charged. Camera is swiped clean of past adventures, ready to be filled with more glimpses of our world.
