There are at least four Davenports under this name.
The Davenport Family (Madison, WI)
The Davenport Family was a collective centered around clay ruby and a group of rotating musicians based in Madison Wisconsin. They play mainly improvised rituals and like to record anywhere but a studio as this adds unique artifacts to the recordings. The Davenport Family name existed actively until 2005, all original members still participate in the band, which now operates (apparently even releasing music that was recorded previous to the name change) under the name Second Family Band.
On Family II's first release: "The ever living theater of Midwestern brethren formerly casting itself as Davenport Family has birthed its final phoenix as Second Family Band. Arising here is the first four discs in an on-going documentary anthology, originally intended as an LP series, these cdrs present the material as intended for consumption in the right now. "Wisconsin Gospel" collects unreleased material compiled by Clay Ruby from 10 years worth of gatherings and archival recordings. As always, the groups fearlessly treads through senseless psychedelia, energetic kraut/tribal workouts, ecstatic prayer sessions, and deep analog explorations flush with broken folk gestures and perfect accidents."
