      Danny founded the Blues Project in 1965. One of the classic bands of the period, their The Blues Project Live at Cafe Au Go-Go won great critical acclaim and won them their first gold record. On this album Danny's signature tune "Alberta," a soft ballad and "Down To Louisiana," a rocking electric blues, established him as one of the preeminent blues players of his generation. Four albums followed that cemented their place in rock history.
