The delightfully talented couple Dave & Daphne will be returning to the Rio Grande Valley to entertain Winter Texans in February. Both are highly talented musicians, with Dave known for his incredible guitar-playing skills. Daphne is known for her fantastic voice. And she’s easy on the eyes, as well.

Putting them both together in one show makes for a great evening of entertainment as these two amazing talents have a stage chemistry that makes audiences smile with pleasure. Adding just the right amount of humor, this duo puts on one of the best shows to come to the Rio Grande Valley.

Dave-and-DaphneDave Salyer has toured the world with Barbara Mandrell, performed at the White House for the President on three different occasions, and appeared on countless TV shows. He was acclaimed as one of the most fabulous guitarists on the planet by Roy Clark.

Barbara Mandrell simply stated, "Dave Salyer is the best guitarist I've ever had.” 

His repertoire ranges from the “Orange Blossom Special” to the “Flight of the Bumblebee” and from the “Wildwood Flower” to the “William Tell Overture.”  He is also an accomplished vocalist, songwriter and humorist.

Daphne Anderson is a beautiful female vocalist who was born and raised in Albany, Georgia. While attending college, she performed in pageants, talent contests, and churches.  She has toured with some of the greatest Southern Gospel Music Groups of all time, including The Bill Gaither Group, The Florida Boys, The Cathedrals, Rex Nelon, The Hinsons, and many others. The Southern Gospel Music Association voted her their Female Vocalist of the Year.  Shortly after graduating from Georgia Southwestern University, she moved to Nashville to pursue a career in music.  Daphne is best described as a cross between Shania Twain and Patsy Cline. She's very attractive, quick-witted, and super talented.  Her impressions of country music legends, Tammy Wynette and Loretta Lynn are among the best. Add to that her ability to yodel out the Patsy Montana classic, "Cowboy's Sweetheart," captivate audiences with Whitney Houston’s smash hit, “I Will Always Love You,” and bless audiences with a gospel classic, "The Lord’s Prayer.” Both Dave and Daphne give credit to God for their wonderful talents.
