“The family that plays together, stays together,” said Greg Davis, husband of Ollie Davis, and father to Andre, Aaron and Artemas. The Davis Family Band brought their talent and family culture to MATC’s Downtown Milwaukee campus cafeteria on Feb. 14 to perform, and share soul food with students and staff. Ollie, main vocalist, sang her heart out and danced along with her family of musicians. Greg plays drums, sax, trombone and guitar in the band. Son Andre plays bass, middle-child Aaron plays keyboard and trumpet, and the youngest, Artemas, is a drummer and saxophonist.

The band does not only make people want to dance, but to watch and feel good about family and relationships. The band has been going strong since 1983, and has played year after year at Summerfest. The band primarily plays jazz, soul and R&B from the ‘60s to the present. The family continues to amaze crowds with how strong a family relationship can be, and how well they work together.
