Jesse Daniel to Josh Williams Band

Mandolinist Jesse Daniel has joined The Josh Williams Band. The position has been open for several months, with a number of pickers handling the shows, and Josh is happy to have Jesse on board.

Daniels is a native of Fyffe, AL living now in Pisgah near Montgomery. He has left a position as a history teacher to pursue a career in music. Previously, he has performed with The Anita Fisher Band, Randy Kohrs and Volume Five.

That makes the current lineup Jesse on mandolin, Josh on guitar and lead vocals, Jason Mckendree on banjo and vocals, and Randy Barnes on bass and vocals.

Here’s Jesse with the band at Silver Dollar City in one of his first shows with Josh.

  • Hey Everybody!
    I just wanted to post here to let everyone know that Jesse has not quit Volume Five. He is still our Mandolinist and we are proud to have him. He has been filling in for Josh and will continue to fill in for him as long as the dates do not conflict with Volume Five’s dates. Many players are doing this these days due to the fact that dates are down for many bands. Volume Five loves Josh Williams and his band, and encourages Jesse to play with them whenever we are not playing somewhere, but I just wanted everyone to know that Jesse has not quit Volume Five and that Volume Five is still Jesse’s priority band. Thanks and we hope to see ya’ll out there somewhere soon.
