About Dan

I started playing tuba in the 7th grade after finally having recovered from a “cello trauma” in grade school.  I started playing baritone horn at summer camp when I was in 9th grade.  And I started playing accordion as soon as my parents could find me the crappiest yet playable-est accordion the flea market could offer.

After graduating from the Eastman School of Music with a BM in tuba performance, I hit the road, playing with rock bands and traveling the United States.  I performed with the Violent Femmes as part of the Horns of Dilemma and joined the Hip Hop Orchestra Dakah in Los Angeles, among other things. I’ve had the fortune to play with such artists as Laurie Anderson, McCoy Tyner, Jim Belushi, and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog.

When I moved back to Philadelphia, I added my multi-instrumentalism to niche bands such as the Johnny Cash cover band Three Men and Three Women in Black, the David Bowie cover band Four Lads Insane, and an annual Rocky-Horror-Meets-Rocky-Balboa extravaganza.  Additionally I perform my own music under name Neon and Shy and rock the local Oktoberfest scene with my band Polkadelphia.
