Summer Update!

Hey Everyone, I just want to give you a quick update about what’s going on with DW6.  The past few weeks have been very busy, we had great shows at Comfest, at the Blue Wisp in Cincinnati, and at the Rochester Jazz Festival.  Today, I am writing this as I am about to wake up the rest of the band before we drive seven hours to play two shows in towns we’ve never played before: St. Louis, MO, and Champaign, IL!  We are extremely excited to play in both towns.  Also, we have two shows in Columbus this weekend at the Jazz and Rib Fest on Saturday and at Dick’s Den on Sunday.

In the month of August I will be playing the woodwind book for Avenue Q at the Riffe Center in Columbus, Ohio.  The show runs three weeks with a possible extension.  Unfortunately I will not be performing at the Lewiston Jazz Festival due to schedule conflicts.  Chris Ziemba will be taking my place friday night.

In other news, DW6 is planning to do another full length album and possibly a Kickstarter campaign, Stay Tuned!  Also keep your eyes out for Jon Lampley’s ‘Fight The Team’ Project and ‘New York Sessions’ to be released in august.  I will leave you with Jon and I playing some MJ.

Checkout some of our recent press!

About danwhitemusic

Dan White is and artist whose music has two distinct, yet interwoven concepts: This logic is clearly displayed in Between The Lines (March 2011). White has a deep respect for acoustic Jazz, but he is also is driven to explore uncharted territory: Playing music that cannot be defined or pigeonholed. Both sides of his music create a synergy effect: the tradition of America's classical music helps build the foundation from which he explores and experiments, while the experimentation gives way to more individuality. Music has played a large part in Dan's life since he was young. The saxophonist comes from a musical family: his grandfather a jazz bassist and music teacher, his uncle a music teacher, and four of his cousins are currently studying music. He grew up just north of Buffalo, New York, where he started playing piano at age eight, and saxophone at age nine. A few years later he got his first real taste of improvisation and composition. After hearing Joshua Redman in concert with his father, White was instantly hooked on the link between composition and improvisation. White states, "My music is an extension of my personality. I am influenced by many, and my goal is to merge these influences into refreshing and creative music that acknowledges the tradition that came before and progresses the art form."
