Valentine's Weekend: Dan Wilson Group With Voices says
Music has been an integral part of Dan Wilson's life since his beginnings in gospel music. Upon hearing a Wes Montgomery record in a relative's basement, Dan decided to pursue a career as a musician. Since then, he has spent more than a decade honing his craft.

His debut album, To Whom It May Concern was released in 2012 and is a product of an intense study of many different musical styles and concepts.

Dan is currently touring nationally and internationally with three-time Grammy nominated jazz organ legend, Joey DeFrancesco, in support of their all-new studio album, “Trip Mode,” which also features drummer Jason Brown & bassist Mike Boone.

In addition to touring with Joey DeFrancesco, he has enjoyed the honor of sharing the stage with many jazz greats including Eric Marienthal, Russell Malone, Les Mcann, Christian Mcbride, and Dave Stryker.

Dan also teaches jazz guitar and improvisation at Cuyahoga Community College and co-leads a group of world class musicians, called D.T.C, which features drummer David Throckmorton and Cliff Barnes. The group plans to release a collective album in Summer 2016.

Dan received his Bachelor's Degree in Music & Liberal Studies from Hiram College in 2006. His passion for Brazilian music led him to the city of Rio De Janeiro in 2007 to conduct research for his Masters Thesis which he defended successfully at Youngstown State University in 2009.

For his show at BOP STOP, Dan is showcasing a new group which features an all star rhythm section with three vocalists:

Dan Wilson, Guitar
Michael Ode, Drums
Theron Brown, Piano
Kip Reed, Bass
Jessica Yafanaro, Vocals
Tom Lehman, Vocals
