A Man Devoted to Music

Musician Danny Faragher is a man devoted to sound. A recording artist with over 7 albums under his belt, Danny toured at the height of the tumultuous 60’s, pioneered the use of the clavinet, witnessed the zenith of classic rock and played with some of the greatest names in musical history including Ringo Starr and Peter Criss.

The odds are that you have already heard or seen Danny Faragher before. It may be from his series of Billboard 100 singles with the Peppermint Trolley Company, Bones and the Faragher Brothers. Or it might it be from guest appearances on TV shows such as the Beverly Hillbillies & Mannix. Perhaps it’s the Brady Bunch theme song or the recent CD reissues. It may also be from his band’s residency at the popular Gazzarri’s during the Sunset Strip’s heyday.

Morning – a poem

morning the gray cloud cover hangs low as it meanders and rolls by like a sympathetic hand to stroke and sooth the waiting earth on the patio a bird flutters and splashes in the rippling fountain life is good
