"CD Review"

David and the band snapped rave reviews with their self-titled 2004 release on Rebel Records - “….sure-fire picking and train whistle harmonies.” - USA Today

"CD Review"

“An excellent instrumentalist in the Monroe style of mandolin, Davis is also among the most emotive, capable, and underappreciated singers in bluegrass.” - Sing Out Magazine


“…hard-charging energy that make it stand out from the pack” - Bluegrass Unlimited

"Live Show Review"

David Davis and the Warrior River Boys offered their usual very high quality two sets. Hailing from Alabama, Davis plays straight up Monroe style mandolin. His clear, fast picking is nearly flawless, and he complements it with a fine mid-range tenor voice that easily slips falsetto when necessary. Robert Montgomery, a neighbor of Davis’ has joined the band on banjo. He plays very good breaks and backup, serving as a good addition to the band. Long-time bassist Marty Hayes’ voice blends very well with Davis’ as they showed so ably on a Louvin Brothers duet in their second set. Paul Priest on guitar sings very well, plays strong rhythm, and offers quality flat picking. Owen Saunders on fiddle is one of the best. His laconic style belies powerful playing and tasteful backup. One of Davis’ strongest songs is a recounting of the death by friendly fire of Stonewall Jackson at “Chancellorsville.” This is an essential work for fans of Civil War songs, much better musically than, say, the “Ballad of the Rebel Soldier.” Another strong song “Gold Watch and Chain” examines the small rewards for a life of hard work. Davis and his band are important parts of the bluegrass world and much deserve wider recognition and play. - Ted Lehmann's Bluegrass, Books, and Brainstorms

"Testamonial Letter"

Hi David,

Thank you very much for the wonderful concert that you and your band presented in Paragould, Arkansas last night. You have an obvious love and respect for traditional bluegrass music, and that love showed through with every song you performed. You set a great example as a bandleader, and you were very generous in allowing each band member a chance to be in the spotlight themselves. I enjoyed too spending time with you and the band. Our crowd loved your performance, and we’d love to have you back again sometime in the future.

I wish you the best in promoting your band and your music. Again, let me know if there’s ever any way I can assist you. I sincerely hope that our paths cross again!

Troubled Times



Directly linked to the origins of bluegrass music, David Davis' love of bluegrass bloomed into an unmistakenly clear image of Americana. With first generation bluegrass influences from Bill Monroe to Ralph Stanley, David Davis and the Warrior River Boys jam a big bluegrass wallop into a concise package for today's audiences. With a great sense of timing from Bass player Marty Hays, the dark tonal double-stops of fiddler Owen Saunders, the drive and speed of Robert Montgomery on the Banjo, Paul Preist's steady rythm guitar, and Davis' Monroesque Mandolin picking; David Davis and the Warrior River Boys are geared up for extended duty.
