High South Hit a High Note at STARnacht!

High South performed July 12th and 13th at the 14th Annual ORF-TV event, STARnacht – “Star Night at the Wörthersee”. in Austria. High South delivered two of their singles for an excited live audience both nights. Saturday’s performance was also simulcast to approximately 600,000 viewers.
STARnacht marks High South’s very first TV appearance, but promises not to be their last. Just minutes after the band’s two songs were aired, iTunes had listed their debut CD “Now” at #15 on the Album chart. Over the next hour the band watched as it rose to #3 before settling, three days later, at #9. That same evening, two of their singles, Now and One Night at a Time, both made the Top 10 Singles chart.
High South will head to Germany and Holland in August and September.

Jamey Films Promo Vid For Dannecker “Optimus” Harmonica

Jamey received his first Dannecker “Optimus” harmonica (Key of C ~ Country Tuned) from Antony Dannecker recently and was so blown away by its performance, that he has responded by shooting a short video to promote Dannecker’s newest innovation.

“We filmed all afternoon in rural Celina, TX. and really captured some amazing images. I tried to metaphorically represent the soul of the harmonica and the absolute down to earth craftsmanship that is Dannecker’s Optimus“, said Jamey. Adding that, the Optimus is the culmination of over 100 years of skilled Dannecker artisans fine tuning their craft. “It harkens back a by-gone era when tradition, craftsmanship and art were handed down from generation to generation, down a long, long road to perfection.”

The Dannecker family tradition with harmonicas started in 1895 in Germany with Hohner. That tradition continues today with Antony Dannecker, himself a professional harmonica craftsman and consultant for the Hohner company.

Antony’s harmonicas are in constant demand the world over, especially in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA where his harmonicas are legendary. Every single harmonica ordered is custom made by hand, personally by Antony and incorporates his numerous specialist refinements guaranteeing optimum air-tightness, reed responsiveness and fine tuning to the highest degree of accuracy for which he is world famous.

Other notable fans of the Dannecker brand are… Huey Lewis of Huey Lewis and the News, actors Bruce Willis & Andy Garcia, harp legends “Toots” Thielemans & Charlie Musselwhite and many, many more!

Order YOUR Dannecker Harmonica directly from Antony, NOW! ~
Antony Dannecker & Jamey Garner ONLY recommend HOHNER.
