The Martin Davis Band

Small Band, Big Beach Sound

“You sound like a six piece band!” - That is the most often heard comment when the Martin Davis Band (MDB) is playing. The MDB was formed by Tony Davis and Durwood Martin, two guys who have been around the block a time or two
connected and toured with classic bands.

Tony traveled with the O’Kaysions all over the US for 3 years and then became one of the founders of the Legends of  Beach. He also was one of the original owners of the Rudy Theater in Selma, NC as well as the drummer in the house band. Durwood played with the Embers for 12 years right out of high school when they were becoming the most well known band in the Southeast. He arranged the music and vocals for them as well as providing the music for their well known "floor shows". He and Tony can be heard on many of the top beach music songs that are played on the air today by virtue of their many hours recording as studio musicians. They also record as the "Martin Davis Band" and their latest single "Take My Love" has been at the top of the beach music charts since the spring of 2012. It was number # 1 on "Fessa" John Hook's National Beach Music Top 40 for 3 weeks and also was on the charts all summer and up to number # 4 on Surf 94.9.

As you would expect, they have an unbelievable range of songs in their repertoire, from any beach music song you can think of, to the best of the hot dance songs from the 70’s and 80's.They also have a great selection of jazz standards at their disposal when playing for wedding receptions and other low-key events. They are fully self-contained with a JBL PA System and a light show. They play everything live (no playing along with recorded music) and every song they do is well rehearsed and tight. You won’t be disappointed and before the night is over, you’ll be saying, “they actually do sound like a six piece band”
