Event Description


 


Never far from likeminded genius, guitarist, singer/songwriter and globally respected purveyor of
the blues, DAN PATLANSKY sidles into his second successive decade as one of the world’s finest
blues-based storytellers of his generation


As Dan settled into his groove, what followed was a barrage of brilliantly executed eclectic and
acoustic blues albums. 2006 brought with Real, Move My Soul in 2009, 20 Stones in 2012, and the
unplugged wonder of 2013’s acoustically anchored Wooden Thoughts release.
With each new release, Patlansky’s albums brought with him a tighter and more engaging lyrical
twist and even more interesting turns, all of which led beautifully to his much anticipated 2014 fullelectric
album released in May. In December 2014, DEAR SILENCE THIEVES (produced by Theo
Crous) was voted the nr. 1 Blues Rock Album in the world released for 2014 by BLUES ROCK
REVIEW/USA, alongside names such as Joe Bonamassa, Rival Sons, Devon Allman, The Black
Keys, Philip Sayce, and many more.
“After over a decade of making albums for us, Dan’s seventh album continues to deliver the
goods that have made him the premier blues rock guitar player in South Africa, if not one of
the top in the world.” – Kevin O’Rourke, Blues Rock Review, USA.
Dan started 2014 off with a bang when he was chosen to open for BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN in front
of 64 000 people at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg in February on his High Hopes tour. Dan
was personally approved by Springsteen as support act, seeing as Springsteen rarely has guest
artists for his shows. Also a milestone for Dan’s career when he played in front of the biggest
audience he has ever played to.
After touring Europe in 2013 with Everlast, Dan returned to the continent in October 2014 for
another tour to promote Dear Silence Thieves internationally. He impressed Norway when he
headlined the FJORD BLUES FESTIVAL with words such as ‘magic’ and ‘religious experience’
used to describe his performance.
With successful shows in the Netherlands and Germany, Dan ended his European tour by
headlining the HORSENS BLUES FESTIVAL in Denmark, a festival where he played at the
‘Showcase Stage’ in the basement in 2013.
