A popular performer in Monmouth and Ocean Counties (NJ), Dan is a versatile musician and singer/songwriter, comfortable playing solo acoustic shows, as half of a duo, or backed by a band.
Dan’s set list includes both original music and an array of vintage and modern covers from the 1950s to the present. Some reflect his earliest musical influences (Beatles, Rolling Stones, Kinks, Bruce Springsteen, Southside Johnny), while others reflect the eclectic preferences of today’s audiences: Doo-wop, 80s pop, blues, Trop-rock, folk, R&B, and even interesting (and sometimes amusing) interpretations of songs made famous by female artists from the Shirelles to Britney Spears and Lady Gaga.
Dan’s original songs tell stories with unusual twists and there is often a joke somewhere in the lyrics. In his ballads, Dan’s words pull on the listener’s heartstrings as he sings of love and loss and decisions. His inspiration comes from the various places he has lived and the winding path of his life when he was not holding the guitar.
