This past August, Dan’s musical travels took him to Louisiana with the Total Experience Gospel Choir, singing concerts in Lake Charles and New Orleans, and performing a week of service projects at St. Jude Community Center. Last June, Dan appeared on stage in two new works at Eclectic Theater’s 3rd Annual One-Act Play Fest: Len Goodisman’s A Stone’s Throw: A Serio-Comedy in Six Scenes Without Words, directed by Jonathan Reis, and The Sound of Her Wings, which Dan adapted from M. Barrett Miller’s Ice: A Journey in Isolation. Other theatre work over the past year-and-a-half includes Len Goodisman’s Deer in the Headlights at the Seattle Center Armory’s Theatre 4, and performances of two solo pieces at Eclectic—Jesuit Wingman and Diamond and Smoke—which Dan adapted from M. Barrett Miller’s book View from the Tent: Thoughts from a Homeless Man. Other portrayals include the narrator in He Would not Come Down and Joseph/Son-in-Law in O Holy Night: A Gospel Christmas, both with the Total Experience Gospel Choir; Prof. Marcus Cadman in Supraliminal with Seattle Immersive Theatre; and Wally in Wally’s Café with Woodinville Repertory Theatre. An avid singer, Dan is in his eighth year with the Total Experience Gospel Choir, which makes over one hundred choral appearances annually. In the spring of this year, the Choir sang back-up for Barry Manilow at the Key Arena, as well as with Heart’s Ann Wilson and Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready at Club Ludo, a Seattle Symphony Fundraiser. Dan occasionally lends his voice to studio recording projects, and sings in two choirs at Saint Mark's Episcopal Cathedral. On the instrumental side, Dan plays trombone in the UW Husky Marching Band Alumni Association, and in July 2014 helped spread musical cheer internationally on a Varsity-Alumni Band performance tour to New Orleans and Cozumel, Mexico.
