Dan is from the home of UK boogie woogie in Dorset. He started playing the piano aged 11 and discovered the boogie woogie sound five years later. Shortly afterwards he met Julian Phillips and is now a regular face at the UK Boogie Woogie clubnights in Sturminster Newton. Dan has been influenced by many quality boogie woogie players including Vince Weber, our own Julian Phillips and Johan Blohm.
His playing and singing are intense and full of soul.
He has played at various venues around Dorset and further afield, with Julian Phillips and other Boogie Woogie Club members, as well as performing with his own family- based trio, “3 Moore”. This year Dan plays two sets at the Sweet Pea Café on Saturday.
