You Should Know...Damien Horne- Toya


(Some of yall, including my 80 year old grandmother, should feel really bad about those dirty thoughts that just ran through your mind. He's an ordained minister for crying out loud.)


Anybody that can get me out on the floor doing the Electric Slide is worthy of a mention on BGLU. I have had to break my life long protest of line formation dancing after going to his shows because they are just one great big ol' party. Now grant it, I put my Aunt Lorraine's swagger on the Electric Slide while I am out there (minus the obscene pelvic movements) but it is impossible to see that many people having that much clean fun and not want to be a part of it.


Damien Horne's audiences at his shows are a great reflection of who he is as an artist. At his shows you are likely to see anyone from Muzik Mafia fans (he is a member of Big and Rich's popular music collective Muzik Mafia along with Gretchen Wilson, Jon Nicholson and Cowboy Troy) to college age students on the floor doing the Soldier Boy dance (umm, I really like that dance too. Again, it looks like a lot of people having a lot of fun. I can't help myself.) Damien Horne can rock out like Bruce Springsteen one minute and in the next minute break out into a beat boxing set that can rival some of the best. With infectious hooks (for the life of me I cannot stop singing We'll Get Through), a killer band and the sweet sounds of his backup singers, The Dreamgirls, his shows are a party that you don't want to miss. For tour dates check out www.myspace.com/damienhorne , find out all about his courageous life story on The 700 Club website, and look out for his debut CD to be released soon.
