Feeling a bit camera shy


Davenport is an independent rock group that hails from Asheville, North Carolina. The five member group has been writing songs and performing in the southeast for 2 plus years, with great success in drawing crowds and keeping them riveted with electrifying stage performances. The musical influences of the band cover a wide range from Led Zeppelin, to the Flaming Lips, but the strength of Davenport is their ability to adapt these influences into a powerful cohesion of originality. Davenport has something to offer every member of the audience.

Davenport's instrumentation consists of two guitars, bass, drums, and keyboards. The band has been together for just over two years, but all of the members have been associated with each other in various groups for the better part of ten. The guitarists, Miles Swartz and Grant Funderburk, are the primary songwriters and both very accomplished rhythm and lead players.

The group's rhythm section consists of bass player Wes Jameson and drummer Skye McLeod. The two provide the backbeat of Davenport's music with rhythmic precision and explosive beats. Keyboards are provided by John McKinney, whose bluesy keys add a distinct flavor to Davenport’s edgy and sexually-charged rock and roll soundtrack.

Davenport’s devoted fan-base has grown larger with every performance . They can adapt to the demands of any situation and will consistently provide quality music for all of their listeners.
