Growing up in a small Maryland Town on 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 he 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! We allow the music to speak for us!
