Dana's guitar work and singing has been in increased demand. He is currently touring with MoonDance: The Ultimate Van Morrison Tribute Concert (www.vantribute.com), The Corvettes Doo Wop Review (corvettesdoowop.com), The Country Jamboree (thecountryjamboree.com), and Memories of Patsy - The Patsy Cline Tribute Show (www.memoriesof patsy.com). He continues to appear locally in the Berkshires with Lady Di & the Dukes featuring Diane Wieland and the Wolf Brothers with Ed Moran.
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
His songs have been aptly described as thoughtful, melodic, original alternative rock. The songs are presented in an inviting musical style 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.
