The Daniel Heitz Band at Orange Blossom Jamboree: Video & Photo Gallery

The Daniel Heitz Band also played on the back stage, and they about destroyed the place. This was a sly ploy by Daniel Heitzhausen, guitar and vocals; Chuck Magid, guitar and vocals; Colin Fei, keyboards and vocals; and Glenn Kastrinos, bass and vocals, to get to play three times at OBJ. And that suited everybody just fine, because they crushed all three times. For this set, Jamal ‘Music City’ Wright was on drums, with David Vanegas on percussion and vocals.

They tore it up. Trey Miller had a sit-in on “Dry Land.” Next they were twisting up blues and prog in “Sugar for Ya.” They slowed things down a bit as Heitzhausen and Magid blended their guitars. Then it was skyrocket time as they blasted through “Sega Genesis,” Fei weaving synths throughout the tune and Kastrinos huge on bass. Wright and Vanegas were superb the entire set. They invited Jay Umlauf from Grindstone Sinners up to join them on the closing “Some Sunny Day” for some awesome shredding.
