About James Davis
Hey everyone! I’m James Davis and I grew up in a small town in central Maine before moving out to Las Vegas and becoming a Chippendale. I always joke that there is more livestock than people in the town I'm from, but it's actually not far from the truth! I relocated to Las Vegas in 2001 to attend school and of course to try living life in the big city. Needless to say I ended up loving the 'city of sin' and began to pursue a career as a fashion and fitness model. It wasn't until the fall of 2007 that I was lucky enough to be scouted for the male revues world tour. I admit I was a little nervous during the casting as I had never danced before, but I was afforded the opportunity to exhibit my skills as a guitarist by playing “Harder to Breathe” by Maroon 5. After a two-week dance boot camp, I was in Riga, Latvia performing for 1500 screaming women at what was my first show! I still maintain my lifelong passion for music by writing and composing for a musical project I started 3 years ago called “ My Name Engraved”. We are currently working on recording a full length album and releasing it on iTunes along with a music video. So be sure to check it out!
I am often asked to share a funny story from the road while traveling in Europe. There are many of course, but one in particular stands out in my mind. We were performing our first of four consecutive sold out shows in Zurich, Switzerland, and every night after the show a few dozen of the girls (probably some bachelorettes looking for a wild story) would try to follow the tour bus back to our hotel. After the second night, the fans got wind of our location in the city and swarmed into our hotel lobby! So you can imagine the utter chaos of having a few hundred rowdy women standing between you and your hotel room. It took us a good hour to navigate through the throngs of people and to get to our respective rooms. In order to leave the hotel, myself and several of the cast resorted to descending a second story drainpipe to bypass the myriad number of girls camping out at the reception desk! Gotta love a good bachelorette party!
