Ralph (Buddy Holly) Daigle
Ralph Daigle - Guitar, Vocals
One of the original members of the Na Na Sha band, Ralph began playing guitar when he was 12 years old. A short time later, he began playing and singing in church and continues to play today as a member of the St. Mark's Na Na Sha Ensemble in Gonzales, La. along with many of the Na Na Sha band. Unlike most of the other band members, Ralph did not play regularly in a band prior to joining Na Na Sha. This was due primarily to his working "shift" in one of the local chemical plants. Aside from just the enjoyment of playing music, Ralph enjoys playing before the (sometimes) large crowds and having the opportunity to see, hear and meet some well-known groups and musicians in person. Although the traveling can get tiresome, it has given Ralph the chance to see many places in Louisiana and neighboring states that he would otherwise probably not have seen .
