Danny & The Champions Of The World – Artist Information | The Camden Crawl 2012

Some say they’re the acoustic world’s answer to the Black Mountain Army, while others claim they invoke the spirit of The Grateful Dead; what they are for certain is a traveling band of brothers and sisters featuring lead Danny Wilson, Neal Casal of Ryan Adams fame and contributions from Brakes and Electric Soft Parade. Those who have caught glimpses of the Champs tell tales of a musical freedom, bizarre face paints, occasional moving pictures and something they call a “yesness”. What this may be is anyone’s guess but when asked to elaborate fans only shrug their shoulders and offer an enigmatic smile. Be sure to find out for yourself when they play the Crawl.
