Hometown - Kansas City, Kansas
Danny Cox (solo)
Danny Cox was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1942. He started singing as a youth in a church choir. As an 18 year old, he began his professional music career in 1960 performing on a Hootenanny Folk Tour.

His first trip to Kansas City was in 1963. On that tour, he was not allowed to stay downtown at the Muehlebach Hotel because he was black. So instead he was transported across the river into Kansas City, Kansas, for his lodging. For the past 35 years, KCK has been his home.

Danny Cox has recorded for ABC Dunhill, Casablanca, MGM, and others. Danny partnered a company called Good Karma Productions, which managed the acts of Brewer and Shipley, the Ozark Mountain Daredevils, and his own career.

Danny was at one time a part owner of the Cow Town Ballroom. These days he is busy writing jingles and working with childrens’ theatres.
