|D.W.I. Dan W. Ivan|
|O.k., so the band carrys Andy's name with "his" silly picture everywhere AND all ya hear about is "The Jenn" this and "The Jenn" that, but seriously folks, Mister Ivan is the reason this band is so good. How Andy talked him into anchoring this project, I'll never know, but it's one of the few things Andy's done right. A local rock icon, Dan was the first in the area to produce a video for MTV. Dan's had records in the top 100 and many credits for his engineering and production skills. His unique vocal style ranks him among the area's best.|
| This phase of his career now finds him as Music Director for his longtime friend's final project. Music Director? ....should be called Ringmaster of this circus!! Dealing with those other 4 "musicians" should earn Dan the Nobel Peace Prize. Luckily, Dan has some nice outside interests. His frequent jaunts to Florida to do some shows with the Jimmy Buffett & Friends tour helps. He's taken time off for a few spins in one of his race cars at tracks around the U.S. He's currently working on one of his rock operas.
So this "Andy's Last Band thing" is just what it should be...a hobby ...a diversion ...an escape from reality. Yes, what an outstanding way to endure yet more hearing loss! For this hobby, Dan's relied more on his sense of humor than his music skills.
Asked if this was going to be his last band too, Dan replied, "HELL NO, I'd like to go out on a strong note!!"
