Acoustic singer/songwriter, playing songs from outlaw/classic country, rock and roll and singer/songwriters of the 50's, 60's and 70's. Hank Williams, Waylon, Willie, Johnny Cash, Don Williams, Jim Croce, James Taylor, Cat Stevens, the Rolling Stones and more.
We couldn't be any happier. We booked Dana Michael Anderson to play at a cocktail party/celebration. He was prompt, professional and sounded GREAT! Multiple party goers and staff asked me where I found him. Dana kept it low key at first and we ramped up the volume and requests as the night went on. He was a beast, playing four hours for us and doing his best to accommodate the crowds requests. I will definitely book Dana Michael Anderson for future Gigs!!!
Price Range: $200 and up
Gig Length: 120 - 240 minutes
What to Expect
I provide my own p.a. and run my own sound. I have several set ups I can use so I can accommodate a very small room to an out door event.
I'm able to play up to four hours of music. I usually break that up into 4 sets of 45 minutes. During the 15 minute breaks I can provide streaming music between sets (if wifi or cell service is available).
I will allow an m.c. or host at an event use of the microphone for announcements or I will host or m.c. an event if the information is provided.
And so forth.
I will try to accommodate song requests without losing the flow of an event and I will do my best to connect with the audience wether they want back ground music or a sing along dance party.
Dana has been playing shows since he was 16 years old. Every where from basement parties, coffee houses, weddings, dive bars, clubs, music venues, listening events, festivals, opening for acts such as the Marshall Tucker band, David Allen Coe and European tours with the Great Crusades. He's worked up over 4 hours of cover songs from the Americana singer songwriter play book as well as mixing it up with songs from Bob Marley, the Pixies, 80's college radio hits, prince, sublime, oasis and more. An entertainer that is able to read a crowd, works hard to accommodate all ages and sounds great as background music with a familiar feel.
Additional Booking Notes
I need one standard grounded power outlet to be able to run my p.a.
Outdoor events I would like to have covered options provided for me by the event planners i.e. pavilion, tent, awning ect.
If it's an evening/night time show you would need to provide lighting of some sort. (Stage lighting is not necessary, just some sort of lighting)
