True to his roots, this native Arizonan lives and breathes the western lifestyle his image portrays. From his faded Levis, boots worn from working, to his big-brimmed, eye-catching hat, Danny Romero is LEGIT. He’s a champion in rodeo, an Arizona cowpuncher, and Northern Arizona country rockstar. With his laughing, smiling, dancing, and hootin’ and hollering’ all night long, he never leaves a crowd unentertained.
This young man has an incredible gift to read his audience and seems to always pick the perfect song. Danny has unmatched charisma; his lovable personality is undeniably contagious. From his unique, from-the-gut laughter, to his big bright smile, proudly portraying the gap between his teeth, Danny truly has the “it” factor. He is a true fan of music, loving all genres. His band, Arizona Territory, has, for years, played everything from country music on the radio today and/or 60 years ago, to ‘50s rockabilly, classic and southern rock, and even a little punk when appropriate.
Danny’s deep southwestern roots tie him to the current governor of New Mexico, Susana Martinez, and to a time when the southwest was Mexico and distant relative Pio de Jesus Pico was the last governor of Mexican California. Danny’s Mexican ancestry and bilingual ability have always afforded him the opportunity to reach his Mexican audience by including music such as Norteno, Ranchera, Cumbia, Corrido, and his personal favorite, Mariachi.
Danny is a special young man who has touched many lives through his music, but also through his amazing story of recovery after a life-altering experience while cowboying on an Arizona ranch. He developed both compartment syndrome and the deadly bacteria necrotizing fasciitis on the same day and was within hours of death and didn’t even know it. This gritty cowboy, however, toughed out three days of extreme pain before going to a trauma center and then slipping into a coma. He awoke seven days later, only to find that in order to save his life, his left leg had been amputated above the knee.
It’s been quite a ride, but thanks to his incredible spirit and faith in God, Danny has miraculously made a full recovery and is back doing all the things he loves: working as a cowboy, running his contracting business, and singing on stage. He has even done some motivational speaking, proving he is truly an inspiring young man, full of talent and life. Danny Romero has truly been blessed through his experiences on stage and in life, acquiring the unique ability to connect with all, a gift ready to be shared with the world.
