From Danno's deep roots in the days of the Beat Group era in mid-late 60's in Cork,with the likes of Rory Gallagher, Danno regularly played support to well- known artists such as Rory/Garry Moore and the Miami Show Band, all this well before the word blues was introduced by the likes of John Mayhall. This followed an exciting stint in Glasgow with the Band: Canvist (2001-2004) who went on to play Dundee, Colne and Tarbert festivals amongst others. Danno finally settled in London in 2010 where W3detour is the current reincarnation and where the band has an excellent fan base.
