The Dan Band in Nashville

Dan Tyminski Band at Station Inn 1/2/08The Dan Tyminski Band performed their debut show this past week, offering two sets at Nashville’s Station Inn on Wednesday evening.

Our friend, old time banjo picker Tina Trianosky, was at the show and sent us some impressions – and found us some photos taken from the crowd.

The show was one of the best bluegrass shows I’ve ever seen. The combination of musicians Dan has put together is unbelievable. They played a combination of original and traditional songs; including some of the classics from Dan’s time with the Lonesome River Band, songs from Dan’s solo CD and songs from AKUS.

The sold out Station Inn crowd particularly liked Mary Ann, One Tear, No Place to Hide, and Del McCoury’s Who Showed Who. One of the biggest highlights came when Ronnie Bowman joined the DTB for two songs, Money in the Bank and Long Gone. Ron Stewart played an smoking version of Pike County Breakdown.

I can’t begin to express how good it was. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. Dan did a wonderful job of incorporating new material from their upcoming CD as well as crowd favorites. I can’t wait for the next show!

Here are a couple more photos from the show, taken by NC banjo picker Eric Hardin – who apologized for the quality.
