New Show Added!

March 13

Happy to announce that I will be opening for my dear friend Willie Nile when he passes through my hometown of Pittsburgh, Pa. on April 3rd at Club Café. Showtime is 8pm. Tickets available at: www.clubcafelive.com

November 18, 2006 was a pivotal moment in my life. It was a significant day of firsts.  It was my first Light of Day Show. My first time ever performing at the Starland Ballroom.  It was my first time performing with Bruce Springsteen, and it was the first time I met Willie Nile and saw him perform.  I knew the name.  Needless to say his set blew me away.  We met and became friends and the following year Willie invited me to play guitar at his LOD performance.  Over the years I've had the opportunity to sit in with Willie a few times and I've always felt it to be an honor.  Now, I'm excited to say that I get to open a show with Wille playing my own material from my debut release The Despair of Summer.  The show is at Club Cafe in Pittsburgh, PA.  Doors are 7. Showtime is 8.  Tickets available at www.clubcafelive.com

ORDER YOURS TODAY

 Check out the great review below from our friend, Mr. Gord Hunter.

"The first time I saw Danny play I was sitting in the next to last row of the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park. I had a full glass of whisky in my hand and I was ready to judge him harshly. I’d been a fan of the Houserockers since 1995 and I knew almost every song note-for-note. As he launched into that first solo, I distinctly remember thinking that he was walking out onto a tightrope the width of an E string. One of the toughest things in music is to come into an established band, create your own space and to do it within the parameters of songs that so many have come to know and love. Danny did exactly that and he did it with soul, with respect and with just the right amount of, well….Danny. When he finally finished, I noticed my glass was empty; always a good sign.

10 years later, I consider Danny a great friend.  He still plays with soul, respect and a signature sound that I’ve come to truly appreciate. You’ll hear it on this record and I’m guessing, if you’ve heard Danny play before, that won’t surprise you. What might surprise you are the intricate and hook-laden melodies laced with insightful lyrics that shift effortlessly between heartache and humor. In between you’ll hear that ever-present guitar paying tribute with subtle nods to blues, jazz and flat out rock and roll. 

If I think back now to those first few notes that I heard Danny play, it’s easy to compare that moment to this record. Once again, he’s stepped out onto that E String tightrope and from the ironic finger-picking folk of The American Dream to the jukebox-rockin’ antics of Crazy Linda J, he’s nailed it. I was going to conclude by saying that I hope you enjoy The Despair of Summer but to be honest, I know you will. Now go pour yourself a Jameson’s, put it on, turn it up and take a walk out onto that wire with my buddy Danny. He’ll take you from one side to the other with a smile on your face and an empty glass."
