An Evening With
DANNY & MIKE
August 17, 2019







Danny Maple is a captivating musician and vocalist who fell passionately in love with traditional bluegrass when he was a young child who was fortunate enough to be born into an extraordinarily gifted family. His musical family, especially his talented mother Betty Maple, who is a respected bluegrass/gospel musician and vocalist, skillfully nurtured his fervent interest in music. Danny fully embraces music, and he gravitates towards music during most of his waking hours. Music transforms Danny's smile into an expression of joy that is evident. Danny is unpredictable on stage --- relaxed and laid back, then suddenly intense, and then something in-between. Many musicians enjoy playing music with other musicians, but Danny wants to play music with almost every musician he meets. Danny has a distinctive voice, an innate range of musical skills, and his authentic enthusiasm is ridiculously contagious.





Mike Bontrager has been attending Woodbridge Guild music events for only a few months. The first time we heard him play and sing, he knocked us off our feet. Mike is bluegrass with a capital B. He is an extremely humble professional musician and vocalist. We are fortunate to have his caliber of talent in our music family.





Fiddle-man Zachary (Zach) Zumstein has been to our Woodbridge Guild hall in the past, but not for a while. Zach is a remarkable musician, and we are thrilled that he was a guest musician this evening. He is an aspiring music educator and avid musician in the Stockton community. He plays first-chair viola for the University of the Pacific's Symphony Orchestra, and he is a popular musician at bluegrass festivals and music campouts hosted by the California Bluegrass Association. Additionally, he teaches fiddle, viola, and piano. Zachary is inspired by old and new artists alike, and he delights in spreading interest in music. Zach is impressive without even trying. Aside from his incredible musical talent, he is a very nice young man.





Rob Sealey is a regular at Woodbridge Guild music events. He sings and plays bass, guitar, and clarinet.

Bruce Champion grew up in Torrance, California. At age 12 in 1962, he became interested in live music when he attended Surfer Stomps with the Legendary Surf King Dick Dale. Surfer Stomps were coast-to-coast in the 1960s and later in Australia and New Zealand. As a young adult, Bruce became involved with Will Geer's Theatricum Botanicum, working with incredible acts, including Bob Dylan and Pete Seeger, at benefit concerts for The Huntington's Chorea Foundation. Will Geer's best friend was Woody Guthrie who died from Huntington's disease.

In his early twenties, with TycoBrahe Sound Company, Bruce did live concerts for Rod Stewart, Elton John, and others. Next he started his own business, Champion Sound Company. For about 20 years he worked mostly rock concerts and toured with acts such as Kris Kristofferson and Andy Kaufman. About ten years ago he focused his interest on recording and custom-built his mobile recording truck. He now lives in Turlock, California, and attends many bluegrass campouts and festivals to record live music. For lovers of bluegrass, he generously uploads the music he records to ReverbNation, where he is creating an archive of live bluegrass music for all to enjoy for free.
