Dan Lawson’s reputation as one of America’s premiere guitar players speaks for itself. Dan and his style have evolved into a charismatic blues-rock sound like no other! He’s a singer-songwriter of stylistic depth and emotional resonance. His ability to connect with live concert audiences is transformational, and his new album will bring that same energy.
Growing up in a small Maryland Town at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, Dan was always around great family musicians. His Uncle Roy Parks was guitarist with Country Music Great “Tex Ritter,” that’s where Dan got the “calling.” Dan does not just play guitar, his guitar tells a story of passion and soul! Dan’s music is a vast mix of Rock, Blues, Jazz, and Funk! The band allows the music to speak for them! Dan is also a frequent performer at all the Major Music Festivals through out North America such as The Ottawa Blues Festival and the Mont-Tremblant Blues Festival in Montreal Canada — and ALL the major motorcycle events in North America. Dan has performed for Sturgis Bike Week in Sturgis, South Dakota, with National acts such as Kid Rock, Joe Walsh, Lynyrd Skynyrd, George Thorogood, Blue Oyster Cult, Alice Cooper, Kenny Wayne Sheppard, Toby Keith and Papa Roach. The Dan Lawson Band is always a crowd favorite during ALL Major Motor Cycle Events. Dan has also performed the National Anthem for former presidential candidate John McCain.
From an early age the heart of 5 years old the Guitar was embedded in Dan. At the age of 16, and with tremendous talent, Dan would sneak into clubs in order to perform with Boston Blues greats such as Peter Bell and Weepin’ Willie Robinson to name a few.
Dan has had the honor of sharing the stage with rock legends such as Mark Farner, John Mayall, Mark Mendoza of Twisted Sister, Matt “Guitar” Murphy formerly of the Blues Brothers, Mike “Tunes” Antunes of the Beaver Brown Band, Chris “Whipper” Layton of “Double Trouble”, The 4 Tops, Jr. Walker’s Allstar’s, The Contours, Bad Company, Styx, R.E.O.
