Alan Davis Jr. - Organ/Piano
Born in London, England, Alan comes from a family of entertainers. His father, a gifted pianist who, among his other achievements, played on radio during the second world war; his mother, a contortionist and one half of a "yoga act".
From the flute, his first instrument, he went on to the saxophone as his main instrument, playing with a big band in England. After being accepted into the British Parachute Regiment as a bandsman, he started his musical career in earnest.
After some years serving his "apprenticeship" working the clubs and functions around London, he started being hired for work on Ferries leaving England, session work in recording studios, and then progressed onto cruise ships for a cruise line based in Piraeus, Greece.
In 1986 he transferred onto piano/keyboards full time.
The next twelve years saw him working as a musician on various cruise lines - variously cruising the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, and the baltic states, and many trips to America during this period.
In between ship "gigs", he would take residencies in hotels abroad, and this included a long residency at the "Forte Grand Pyramids" in Giza, Egypt.
Nowadays, Alan lives in the beautiful mountain town of Suches, Georgia, where he enjoys riding motorcycles, hiking with his faithful border collie, Abbie, and photographing the beautiful scenery.
