TWO great days of "The Other Side of Elvis" & Danny's own original music written to help broken - hurting people - from one who has been there and overcome that!
Vann says to bring the whole family to this uplifting event. The doors open at 6:30pm - the concert starts at 7pm. Call (989) 686-0900 for more information. The church is located at 2535 E. Wilder Rd at I-75 in Bay City.
Vann said "I haven't done a regular Elvis (Rock-n-Roll) concert in over 2 years."
Vann went on to say, "I started doing Elvis in 1968 - at the age of 15, I basically hung up the jumpsuit, trimmed up my sideburns and just stopped doing shows altogether." "I do the Gospel concerts in a black tux now." said Vann.
Vann was doing 40-50 concerts a year all over Michigan & Ohio - plus held down a full-time job in corporate America.
Vann & his wife, Linda, currently own The Angel's Lair Bed & Breakfast
in Bay City.

Danny Vann was born and raised in Bay City. Vann was the oldest of six (parents divorced) placed in an orphanage, then a foster home and back to a step family with alcohol abuse.
Vann left from home at the age of 17 when he was a junior in high school, but went on to graduate from Cadillac Senior High School with honors.
Vann exclaims "GOD and the gift of music that He gave to me held me together through it all."
In the orphanage Vann was an altar boy and literally went to church everyday and twice on Sunday. Prayer and singing were his constant companions.
After Angio-plasty surgery, the death of his father to a massive heart attack & open heart surgery himself - all within a four month period - Danny has been blessed with a very spiritual view of God's gifts of time & body here in His Creation. He shares these common sense spiritual insights with every family member in a way that's easy to relate to and easy to take home and apply in "everyday" life.
"I always suspected I was born to serve God - I just didn't know how until I was born again in March 2005 at Bay Valley Christian Church of Bay City." said Vann
To clarify his point through song, Danny performs many "standard" Southern Gospel hits like, "He Touched Me", "By and By", and "How Great Thou Art", in the amazing style of the late great Elvis Presley. Then he pours out his own soul in his all new original spiritual music "I Hear An Angel Whispering", "I'm All Wound Up!", "Gimme-a-Hug" and many many more.
Bring the whole family to this touching event. The doors open at 6:30pm - the concert starts at 7pm. Call (989) 686-0900 for more information
