Captain Danger / Bio


Guitar/Vocals: Aaron Steinberg
Drums/Vocals: Roger "Joose" Benford
Bass/Vocals: André Berry

CAPTAIN DANGER is here to save the day! Fun, funky, and frequently funny, CAPTAIN DANGER serves up “catchy, quirky guitar-pop with a funky soul" . . . with a unique but “immediately likable” catalog of classics.

It’s a 3-piece band with a rich sound (a little engine that could), offering up a special balance of musicality and fun. Built upon the songwriting of guitarist/singer Aaron Steinberg, CAPTAIN DANGER songs just groove right along, thanks to percolating bass from André Berry (also on vocals) and killer beats from drummer Roger “Joose” Benford (on vocals as well).

A sense of humor has served CAPTAIN DANGER well – highlights include appearing live on Showtime’s comedy gem “The Green Room With Provenza” as well as composing music for Howard Stern and Bill Nye The Science Guy. Festival gigs include performances at South by Southwest and CMJ Music Marathon.

Says CMJ: "[Captain Danger does] the perfect pop formula so well it doesn't feel formulaic at all."

Influences include rock and R&B greats such as Jimi Hendrix, Prince, The Police, Sly Stone, King Crimson, James Brown, The Beatles and Motown, along with the slightly more niche appeal of artists like Nellie McKay, Shuggie Otis, Soul Coughing, Ben Harper, The Meters and Tom Lehrer.

The band is hard at work on a new collection of recordings, due later in 2015.

Armed with great melodies, rhythms, and a love of humor and irony, CAPTAIN DANGER sticks up for the underdog (wherever she or he might be). If Don Quixote was a modern-day city dweller, he’d have CAPTAIN DANGER songs first up on his playlist.

Recent production / composition goings-on include: new songs for OLIVIA OLSON ("Marceline The Vampire Queen" on "Adventure Time" on Cartoon Network) and also youtube sensation FLULA BORG.
