Here is what some of the best players in western Massachusetts are saying about Dana's work:
"Dana Welts and the Modern World bring me back to the music and the feel of the 60”s. It reminds me of the kind of music I used to catch at the Fillmore East and the Electric Circus." - Rob Putnum
"I like what Dana Welts is doing. The songs are creative and well-crafted." - Danny Broad
"Dana's tunes are really good, those tunes are definitely happening..." - Tommy Filiault
Dana has been busy with regular solo work at the Lion's Den and his collaboration with Dave Bacon and Diane Weiland as Lady Di & the Dukes. His band, The Modern World, was the only rock group invited to perform in the second annual 2012 Made In The Berkshires Festival. His songs have been aptly described as thoughtful, melodic, original alternative rock. The songs are presented in an inviting and professional musical style and are characterized by strong hooks, clean arrangements, political commentary and a slightly twisted and cynical but often joyful tone. Whether you are going to a solo or a band show, be prepared for a jangly experience that truly resonates with the soul of the sixties.
