Dan’s music harks back to the roots of early rent party/juke playing. He focuses on rare and standard blues classics by bluesmen such as Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, T-Bone Walker and Lightnin’ Hopkins.
Dan has performed extensively in the USA, both with contemporary blues players and as a solo act. He gravitated towards the deep South in early 2007 whilst making a documentary on the history of blues and has since spent 16 weeks playing around the Mississippi Delta and surrounding areas.
Recently, Dan has developed a strong following among blues dancers seeking to re-create the juke-joint style experience of the 1920s-1950s. Dan is based in London, and plays regularly for blues dancers around the UK and Europe.

THE REVOLUTION BLUES BAND
The Revolution Blues Band was born as part of a dance community in Valencia, Spain (Valencia Blues Revolution). This unforgettable journey started when a love of music and a passion for dance brought us together to play from the heart.
The group is made of dancers and exists for dancers and, therefore, the most important thing for us is to play for people who really feel the music and the dance.
Our music is a mixture of styles from Delta Blues, Chicago and Boogaloo to Jazz or Funk and always with our personal “fusion” using rhythms from African music, flamenco and other genres.
