About Dan

Currently:
I had my first gig in 1996 and things just haven’t been the same since. Now I’m playing with the Mojo Workin’ Blues Band who puts out a cool variety of B-side blues and southern rock tunes that you can’t not dance to. My schedule is open for other opportunities as well so feel free to email me if you have a group looking for drums. I have experience in pop/rock to blues to metal to progressive rock and enjoy playing anything that is well orchestrated, arranged and performed. If you want to come see me play, check out my schedule.

What I’m in to:
Musically I like just about every genre, including country and hip-hop, just that some genres have a lower percentage of artists I like than others. Pop and progressive rock were early influences. I got turned on to more experimental styles like fusion, jazz and Frank Zappa (yes, he gets his own genre) in my early 20’s. It’s always great connecting with musicians with the same influences so I’ll list my favorite performers: Frank Zappa, Steely Dan, Rush, Porcupine Tree, Primus, Madonna, Mastodon, Damiera (huge bonus points if you know them), Animals as Leaders, Sound of Animals Fighting, Led Zeppelin, The Who, Handsome Boy Modeling School, Public Enemy, A Tribe Called Quest, Dave Matthews Band, The Mars Volta, Lake Trout, Chick Corea, Mr. Bungle, Steven Wilson, Michael Jackson, Umphrey’s McGee. Also comedians George Carlin and Doug Stanhope are pretty great.
