When you put on an event or party at which people need to be entertained, you obviously want to go with top-notch musical entertainment.  So, logically, you seek a band that is both a pleasure to listen to and friendly to your budget.  Some would say that this balance is hard to find, but with to "A Tribute to the Music of the 1970's" featuring the Daniel Childs Band, you get the best of both worlds.

Daniel Childs and the members of his band have a collective 20 years of live entertainment experience.  Audiences across the United States have loved Daniel Childs' music, as he spent many years touring the country before settling on Florida as home.  Locally, Daniel has been a favorite at venues across the Tampa Bay area for his heart-felt singing and dynamic guitar playing.

"A Tribute to the Music of the 1970's" is three-times the fun.  This unique concert program has been specially designed to entertain lovers of 70's music, and has been thoughtfully crafted to take the audience on a journey through various hits that changed music in rock's golden era.  From acoustic-driven band hits from the likes of America and the Eagles, to the electric R&B hits of Motown, to singer-songwriter hits by the likes of Jackson Browne and Billy Joel, this concert experience is sure to entertain audiences with songs they've loved for years.

In addition to stellar performances of well-known hit songs, this concert program is also full of interesting band facts and esoteric insights about many of the iconic hit records of the 1970's.  Created with corporate events and parties in mind, this concert program is also available as a solo acoustic performance for smaller venues.

Welcome to the new site! 

I guess the most appropriate thing to say for my first blog entry here is "welcome to the new site".  Danielchilds.com has been online for nearly 15 years, and has seen many phases.  I think, though, that the best look yet is this sleek one powered by Bandzoogle.  With the addition of danielchildsmusic.com, hopefully I'll get more views to the site.

The purpose of this site is to keep you informed of my live entertainment business and my current musical projects.

A little about me.  I'm a full-time Worship Leader, and that's the main thing I do.  When I'm not doing that, I play gigs as a musician around the Pinellas County, FL area.  So, as you can imagine, I stay extremely busy.  Project-wise, I'm writing Christian songs right now and working on some recordings, and hoping it'll turn into something.

I'm a southerner by birth from the delta plains of West Tennessee, but a Floridian by the grace of God.  I live in Largo, FL and am happily married to my wife, Norma.  This summer we will celebrate our 4th anniversary.  We own a house now, which is quite a change-up from my previous adult life - which was always moving frequently from apartment to apartment, and city to city.  In Pinellas County, we have found a home, a church home, many friends, and even family.  So, for the first time in my life, I can say that it looks like we'll be staying put.

God has been so good to Norma and I.  He has shown us much, delivered us much, and changed us much.  His work in my life, my constant need to connect with Him, and the price He paid for my soul are the reasons that the original music I make is mostly Christian music.  These days, I spend a lot of time writing music for the Kingdom, and try sacrifice my music for a higher purpose.  I'm interested in the idea of recording a selection of original Worship songs and seeing how it sounds.

I do play secular music a lot, though, as a solo musician around Pinellas County, and I have a great time doing it.  As I write this, I'm getting ready to head to Clearwater for a gig tonight, at which I'll play a lot of hits from over the years that I'm a fan of.  And though writing secular tunes isn't my thing, I have enormous respect and admiration for many secular songwriters that I'm a fan of, such as Jackson Browne, Matt Scannell, Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Billy Joel, James Taylor, Steve Wariner, Bob Gaudio, and the list goes on.

Hope to have more to say soon!

God bless and thanks for visiting,

Daniel Childs
