United Methodist Church of Sun City Center Hosting Nashville Duo Dave & Daphne

The United Methodist Church of Sun City Center, located at 1210 W. Del Webb Blvd., is welcoming Nashville duo Dave & Daphne to its campus on Friday, January 7 at 7 p.m.

Dave Salyer toured the world with country star Barbara Mandrell. Roy Clark, of Hee Haw fame, called Salyer one of the most talented guitarists on the planet. Daphne Anderson was once honored as the Southern Gospel Music Association’s Female Vocalist of the Year. Dave & Daphne’s concerts have all the energy of a Las Vegas-style show with solid country music roots, and they have appeared in such major venues as Nashville Now, the CMA Awards, the Grand Ole Opry and the Southern Gospel Music Conference.

A donation of just $10 is requested at the door on the night of the concert. For additional information, contact Kevin Goodenow at 362-0956. To learn more about the United Methodist Church of Sun City Center, visit
