Learning guitar in the 70’s, Dan was drawn to following the likes of Santana, Clapton, Page, Beck, and many other Classic Rock artists. From the early days of garage, party, and club bands, he has always approached his playing with a passion and reverence for the greats.
Dan has been involved in the Detroit music scene for over thirty years, and is experienced in writing, recording, and producing local artists at his home studio since the mid 90’s. As well as handling both the lead and rhythm guitar duties, plus the lead and backing vocals in many of the bands and projects over the years. The past nine years, Dan has held one of the lead and rhythm guitar and vocal positions in the Detroit Music Award winning band, Magic Bus, which has been one of the top-rated Michigan tribute bands over a fifteen-year run.

It’s an opportunity of a lifetime for me. I’ll do my best to represent band’s legacy and keep the music alive for all the fans across the world.”
