Sahara Rain – The Danny Balis Project

In case you missed pretty much all of the Hardline today, Danny’s late 80’s, early 90’s hair rock band, Sahara Rain, surfaced again with someone sending Queerby (Corby) an awesome band photo. The original is over at The Ticket dot com, but here is one pointing out where he is. Danny is the one on the far right with braces:

What a great band photo!

Here is the tune I’m guessing is called “Kick It” from Sahara Rain:

I think it’s great how Danny is always beaten down about thinking most bands suck, which he’s not prejudice because he thinks his own band sucked. Danny, I think you’re a definite music snob, but I think this is great. You should hold on to your old roots!

Here is the entire Sahara Rain segment:

If anyone has more photos or where we can get Sahara Rain music, please leave a comment so we can put together a Sahara Rain tribute page.

**UPDATED**
I guess the guy that sent in the email discussed in this audio below commented here at The Unticket. He wanted to hear the segment about his email, plus he had a bit more to add. Here’s the audio, followed by his comment:

They talked about an e-mail from a guy who saw the rain at the basement and how Danny used to sling the bass around his back and catch it and how he high fived everybody while working the crowd. Danny was never more pissed off. Ever. I’m the guy who sent the email. Sahara was awesome. I feel the music. I didn’t get to hear the segment due to work but some co-workers told me about it. And I did see Sahara Rain at the Basement. It was all true, and Danny would also lick the neck of his bass real horny like during one song. I think it was “Groove Slave”.

Here are a few new images to the Sahara Rain tribute page. A Sahara Rain t-shirt and the front and back image of the Sahara Rain album “Livin In A World Gone”:

    I think Danny was half-steppin’ with the baggy jeans. He looked like one of the dudes from that horrible band Nelson or something. 🙂

    I’m not mad at him…I loved 80’s rock. I don’t like how he distances, though. Come on, dude! Be proud!

      Hey Brian! These photos are great. But yeah, Danny does have the head and hair.

      Any idea where we might find more pictures and/or music?

    LOL I know these guys! How weird came across this site by accident…or did I ? I used to date Richard (one of the twins) back in the late 80’s when I lived in Dallas. After we broke up I moved to LA to peruse my own music career and haven’t talked to him since.
