Happy Solar Return, @daguitar.
Danny is a New Orleans guitarist who can be found playing with bands all over the 'Crescent City'. Danny grew up in Jackson, MS and later moved to New Hampshire. The experiences he had in these locations helped him to develop a strong sense of blues and jazz at a young age. In 2001 he moved to New Orleans where he studied at the University of New Orleans with the likes of great musicians such as Steve Masakowski, Ed Petersen, Brian Seeger, and Hank Mackie, just to name a few.
Today, Danny can be seen playing regularly with a number of local New Orleans bands, including often fronting his own jazz/funk ensembles. He has shared the stage with George Porter, Fred Wesley, Leo Nocentelli, Doug Wimbish, and Terrence Higgins, along with countless other music legends. Additionally, Danny has had opportunities to tour with Big Sam's Funky Nation and the Wild Magnolias and his currently on tour with the New Orleans based musical group, Tank and the Bangas. His versatility is one of his strongest features and has enabled him to be one of the hardest working guitar players in New Orleans.
