Dallas Banjo Band
You Can't Play a Sad Song On a Banjo
Recent Show at the Allen Public Library Auditorium-
Before a sellout crowd of around 300, we had one of our best performances of late.
Standing ovations as we performed a great variety of Banjo tunes, but also a series of individual vocalist numbers highlighted by Tamora Wood's rendition of "ALL THAT JAZZ" that brought the House down and had everyone throwing away their DVD's of the movie Chicago.
Adam's life was drab and uninteresting, so God enlivened his life by creating woman.
So it has been with the DBB... our routines were becoming old and lacked enthusiasm.
The solution?? Add a WOMAN, or even better, LOTS OF WOMEN !
We now have added FIVE young (or, at least, much younger) ladies who have made us play better, certainly look better, and have instilled some much needed enthusiasm to the Band (to say nothing of an awful lot of real talent) !
From top left , clockwise..
MARLA- Multi instrumental banjoist, vocalist, and our new Top Gun
TERI ANN- Miss Enthusiasm and driving force for livelier performances
GAIL- Versatile Chord and Melody "real musician"
TAMORA- Multi-talented Opera Soprano and show stopping Band Vocalist
ALICE- Multi-instrument player and great voice
COME SEE THE DIFFERENCE THESE FEMININE DYNAMOS HAVE MADE !
NOTE- To preclude EVE SYNDROME, the consumption of Apples is prohibited at DBB performances

NOTE- Checkout Tamora's sub-page, under NEWS, for info on her ardent humanitarian project to support victims of Sexual Abuse... great cause !!
... and then God created WOMAN !
SPEAKING OF MARLA....
Besides being the DBB lead melody player and recipient of the DBB Smoky award, she now has filled a spot in the famous Levee Singers Shows at the Pocket Sandwich Theater. Ed Bernet's group has been wowing Dallas audiences for decades; but Marla has taken them to even higher heights with her playing Banjo and Bass, while also bringing down the house with her voice...an amazing talent !
