I am the ONLY musician in the bay area that has 38 reviews on Yelp and a 5 star average! Look me up!

- Won Best Jazz w/Vocals album by the IMA (Independent Music Awards)
- Touring w/legendary alto sax player Lee Konitz
- Performances with The Modesto Symphony Orchestra - Pops
- Recording w/John Lee Hooker (2009)
- Performances w/The Oakland Opera

Whether you are looking for a dedicated jazz pianist for an intimate party, a cocktail pianist or someone to play a special song at your wedding, look no further. I know how to make the occasion an incredibly special one.

I occasionally tour with an amazing bassist (Europe and beyond) + legendary alto saxophonist Lee Konitz. I also team up with grammy award-winning violinist, Mads Tolling (of Turtle Island Quartet). In 2006 we performed for the Prince and Princess Of Denmark at the Danish Embassy in Washington, D.C. among other things.

Dan was awesome!! The first thing that I realized was how knowledgeable he was of any song I could possibly think of having at our ceremony and Dan was able to tell us instantly if it would communicate on our big day. He was also a great listener, punctual and quick to reply when it came to hearing our requests, and working with my now-wife to make her day extra special, even when she changed her mind. Our ceremony started a little late, as our guests were waiting, but Dan continued unfazed, even adding some interest to the same piece. As a bonus, we were also quite happy with his formal appearance that coordinated well. So seamless. Thanks Dan!

Dan was a pleasure to work with. He was extremely professional and creative. His talents were captured during our pre-wedding ceremony, wedding ceremony, and cocktail hour. He even sent us a video of a special song request we had beforehand. I would highly recommend working with him!
