Governor Davis & The Blues Ambassadors
4-piece blues outfit, injected with a healthy dose of soul, R 'n B and rock influences. Known for its feel-good music, tastefully spiced with a little humor and a lot of fun -- their live performances are audience-interactive shows with Gov leaving the stage to dance with the audience, playing guitar with his teeth, and bringing audience members up on stage to dance and sing back-up.
