About Dan Daniel & Georgia Grass

Thank You for considering my group Georgia Grass for your event. We are a
professional Bluegrass Band with many years experience in the entertainment field
My name is Dan Daniel and I play the Guitar and sing most of the lead vocals for
the group. I have played Country, Gospel and started playing Bluegrass in 1969.
I founded Georgia Grass Bluegrass Band in 1973 and over the years we have
played for many bluegrass festivals and events in Georgia and around the South
East. In the early 70's we played many clubs and private events around the
Atlanta area and in 1976 we were chosen to play for the Grand opening of the
Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. I first learned to sing from my Mother at
church and then around age nine I began teaching myself to play the Guitar. I like
all types of music but when I found bluegrass in 1969 it stuck and has become a
very large part of my life. I am a member of the Bonded Brothers of Bluegrass and
the President and CEO of the Southeastern Bluegrass Association. In 2009 I was
honored to be inducted into the Atlanta Country Music Hall of Fame, and in 2017
the Atlanta Society of Entertainers presented me with the Musician's Lifetime
Achievement Award.

The bands Banjo player is James Mckinney, and he also sings some lead and
harmony. James started playing the Banjo at a very young age and has won many
awards in his lifetime. He won the South US Banjo Championship at the age of 14,
many first place awards in other states and in 1982 he was awarded the Grand
National Banjo Champion of the United States at the annual awards in Winfield KS.
James has played with several legends such as Bill Monroe, Vassar Clements and
John Hartford. He has worked as a studio musician in Nashville and is rated as one
of the top banjo players in the country. James was inducted into the Atlanta
Country Music Hall of Fame in 2015.

Niki Portmann is the bass player for our group and also a singer. Her love of music
from a young age lead her to try several different instruments and she decided on
the Upright Acoustic Bass, which she has mastered very well through years of
practice. She was inducted into the Atlanta Country Music Hall of Fame in 2016.

We can also include Fiddle and Mandolin players if needed.

We promise to give you the best show possible and will work with you in any way
we can to make your event the best that it can be. We guarantee that if you hire
us once you will have us back again because our word is our bond and we love our

Thank You
Dan Daniel
