QMT brings bluegrass to Quincy

By The Staff

Put on your boots and stomp on down to the Quincy Music Theatre for two hours of great bluegrass music featuring David Davis and the Warrior River Boys, and Tallahassee's own Bottom Dollar Boy$, in concert Friday, beginning at 8 p.m.

David Davis and the Warrior River Boys have two Rebel Records albums to their credit. Of their self-titled release in 2004, USA Today raved it was full of “sure-fire picking and train whistle harmonies.” “Troubled Times,” released in 2006, takes the listener into Warrior bluegrass soul.

Joining Davis in the group are bassist Marty Hays, guitarist Adam Duke and fiddler Owen Saunders.

The Bottom Dollar Boy$ are considered the oldest standing bluegrass band in Tallahassee. In the 1980s they created and produced the Bottom Dollar Bluegrass show on local Channel 9.

Now the fellas are back doing what they do best – combining a healthy dose of Fred “Butch” Burns’ signature humor with the band’s tight vocal harmonies and finger-challenging instrumentals.

Burns, who plays mandolin and guitar, is joined by Brent Kittrell on bass, Lee Kotick on guitar and Marc Maynard on banjo.

All seats are $10. Tickets for the show are available online at www.qmtonline.com/tickets2.htm, or by calling the box office at 875-9444. You can also buy tickets at the door on the day of the show.

The Quincy Music Theatre is located in the historic Leaf Theatre building at 118 E. Washington, Quincy, FL 32351.
