Saturday, August 30 at 8:30 p.m., the Davisson Brothers Band will be playing live at the Waco Center with retired Mountaineer football legend Owen Schmitt. The Davisson Brothers Band consists of four members: the two brothers, Donnie Davisson the lead vocalist and rhythm guitar, and Chris Davisson who plays lead guitar. Their cousin Sammy Davisson does vocals and plays bass guitar, and finally long-time best friend Aaron Regester, who plays the drums. The band originates from Clarksburg, West Virginia and started out in 2006. Their music is best described as “mind-bending blend of bluegrass, country, and blues guitar.”
The band is best known for their songs “Big City Hillbilly” and “Foot Stompin”” which charted on the Billboard Hot Country Songs. Davisson Brothers Band signed up with Yell Records in 2009 and has been growing their fan base ever since. Even though their popularity continues to grow, the band still sticks to its roots and continues to play around the West Virginia, Maryland and Pittsburgh area. The band is also famous for their West Virginia University Mountaineer anthem called, “What it means to be a Mountaineer,” which is played at the beginning of almost every home football game.
