The raw and rusty musical meanderings of The Dan Strauss Band can be heard at Branded Saloon on February 8, 2013 at 8pm!
Dan Strauss first began performing in the early 90s and has only amped it up after crossing the 40 threshold. In and out of bands and Simon & Garfunkle-esque duos, Dan returned to his Brooklyn roots in 1997 and became a mainstay on the singer-songwriter scene, performing regularly at such venues as The Living Room, Rockwood Music Hall, CBGB's 313 Gallery, and The Knitting Factory. Over the years, he has become a favorite NYC and Hudson Valley songsmith, writing intimately across a variety of musical styles. Whether drawing inspiration from the hooks and harmonies of The Beatles, American blues-folk of the Band or moody art rock of Bowie and The Smiths, Dan finds a way to tell stories in a pure and straightforward way that connects deeply with listeners and fans.
