Danny Agajanian

Every Friday and Saturday a really talented musician
named Danny Agajanian and his Hallelujah Band play
a mix of bluegrass, ragtgime and Civil War-era songs
at Main Street Bagels. He's performed at the Grand Ole
Opry, Hollywood Bowl, Greek Theater, Disneyland and
Knott’s Berry Farm as well as playing as a warm-up
artist for Billy Graham for over 25 years. Today we
saw him play no fewer than 6 instruments during the
couple of hours we listened to him, including the banjo,
accordion, 12 string guitar and harmonica. Maybe I'm
getting old, but I knew 99% of the songs he played.
Either from old radio and tv shows, or from Hebron
elementary school music class with Mrs. Hannewald.
Danny even played a song that Lynn requested; one
her mother sang to her as a little girl. He's very easy
going and a pleasure to listen to.
