“Because of my love for songs from The Great American Song Book, I have compiled a repertoire of my favorites that incorporate a chord melody approach with subtle vocal styling’s ala Chet Baker and Mose Alison. Segue that into some Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Bill Withers, Carol King, Bob Marley and Steeley Dan, you can enjoy my diversity and musicianship.”
In 2014 Dana introduced his band Lava Lamp And Hot Lava. This was the perfect platform for Dana to present some of his original blues rock tunes as well as some choice instrumental covers.
Stay tuned. Peace
