ABOUT

“Dan has a gutsy raw guitar style with a classic blues/rock tone and plays from the heart. Not a lot of fancy runs but you can feel his passion and power coming through his hands from his soul. He has been influenced from great blues and rock players.”

-Bill Lordan (formerly Robin Trower & Sly The Family Stone drummer)
