Dan King with David Brown, Wolf Ginandes, and Dave Mattacks are a World Class folk rock combo that have been playing together consistently for the last 5 years. Their combined experience and chemistry makes for an exciting and magical live show as well as pristine and original studio work.
Dan King writes the songs and sings them. The subject matter and production are timeless works that lend to his world weary voice. New York Rock likened him to " Tom Waits and Little Steven Van Zandt" for his work with grammy writer producer Tom Hambridge (Buddy Guy, Susan Tedeschi, Johnny Winter).
David Brown and Dave Mattacks individually are world recognized for their contributions to the Folk Rock scene. David Brown was the guitarist for Simon and Garfunkel's Famous Concert in Central Park New York. Dave Mattacks was drummer on the UK's consistently voted and revered most influential and best Folk Rock record Fairport Convention's Liege and Lief. Their extensive credits on countless major releases with the top of the music industry(Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, Bonnie Rait, Elton John, Dr. John, Georoge Harrision, Roseanne Cash) speaks for itself. Together with Berklee Blues and Soul Bassist and Mohegan Sun All-Star Wolf Ginandes (James Brown, GE Smith) they from a tight knit and tasteful Folk Rock combo rooted in the blues and folk traditions that can quiet the room to silence turn a page and rock the house.
