“I was super excited when I was given the opportunity to play Harbor Market on Halloween, because, my family lives in Mississippi. I attended my cousin’s wedding there 5 years ago and just fell in love with the area and I’ve come back every year since.
When I got the gig (my cousin booked it for me) I immediately had to go out and find local musicians, lighting, sound and video for the venue, etc. More importantly, I had never sangwith any of the musicians I hired before, so this represented a huge challenge for me. There wasn’t even a window of time for a quick rehearsal.
Finally, I had to give my new band a name, and it only seemed logical to keep the naming convention I’d used before, so
“Davi & The Mississippi Fuzz was born!” I was lucky enough to find videographer Take Action Design and my Producer and I collaborated to develop a quick storyboard. In the end, we filmed a mini-documentary of this gig. What a great learning and musical experience it was for me!
