Triumphant return to the Gaiety
The guitarist, who is from Port St Mary but now lives in Chicago, performed at the venue for the first time in four years on Monday and for part of his set he appeared with special guest Bernie Marsden – an ex songwriter and guitar player with rock band Whitesnake.
Davy was thrilled to share the stage with one of his idols who has become one of his friends.
The set even included a couple of Whitesnake hits, Ain’t No Love In The Heart of the City and Here I Go Again.
The night was an emotional homecoming for Davy – mirrored in the stage set which featured the word ‘home’ in lights.
New material was played throughout the gig as well as some of his most popular songs including Come Home, Tear Down The Walls and Roll Away.
Fiddle player Katie Lawrence – well-known in the Island’s music scene – accompanied Davy on a couple of songs too.
Nick Barlow and the Bad Noise warmed up the crowd tremendously with a fantastic performance and the whole night was a major showcase for Manx-made talent. Credit must also go to Lenny Conroy of Triskel Promotions – a long time supporter and friend of Davy – for organising a hugely memorable night.
