Some bands have this knack. Before the first song is even over, you get an incredible urge to grab your guitar, plug in and rock along with the music. The D.B, Bryant Band has this knack, as amply demonstrated on their self-titled CD, which is filled with blistering rock as only this South Carolina based group can dish it out. It may remind you a little of a one-guitar Molly Hatchet at first, as guitarist/vocalist Bryant's voice slightly reminiscent of their late lead singer, Danny Joe Brown. Bryant's brother Willie handles bass duties for the trio, and a dude named Paul mans the skins. In addition to picking up their guitar-soaked CD, be sure to look for them at the House Of Blues in Myrtle Beach, as they've played there almost 20 times in the past. The D.B. Bryant Band were originally profiled in the October-November, 2006 edition of The Undiscovered.
D.B. began playing guitar at age seven in Possum Hollow, S.C. just around the corner from Winnsboro. He started performing professionally at age nine. D.B. played local nightclubs every weekend while in school. He left U.S.C. on his 18th birthday to play on the road full time. The band was called Hi-O-Silver. He toured the Southeast for three years gigging six nights a week. Later relocating to Texas for seven years, he toured nationally most of that time. D.B. eventually started the band Elijah Prophet and released two CDs. This band opened for Alice Cooper, Molly Hatchet, .38 Special, Blue Oyster Cult, Robin Trower, Mark Farner's Grand Funk Railroad and others. DB recently started the The D.B. Bryant Band with his brother Will. In addition to their self-titled CD (and its predecessor "The Bud Album"), they are working on Elijah Prophet's third CD. D.B. is also recording a solo acoustic CD and plays his well used '75 Stratocaster every week in the Carolinas.
Currently, the D.B, Bryant Band is branching out into other states, playing biker events, music festivals, and racing events, while continuing to open for many national acts. They also recently signed with CSI South.
