What's Dan Doing Now?

  • Despite having to tip-toe around Covid, 2022 is shaping up to be an incredibly busy year for Acoustic NRG. We are helping many clients celebrate their postponed events and are looking forward to more of the same in 2023. Are you looking for live music that will make your party a hit? Click here and let's get started!

  • Sadly, the Spring 2022 semester was my last at County College of Morris. I can honestly say that teaching at CCM for the past 16 years has been one of the great joys of my life and I'll miss all of the friends I've made in that time - especially the students. Although this development is bittersweet, I'm looking forward to this new phase of my life, which will be filled with music and creativity. Straight ahead!

  • I've recently completed producing and engineering the acoustic track "Feel Alright" for my friends Toth. It'll be released soon. Check out @tothmusic and @dpalladinomusic on Instagram for updates.

  • Distant Brother has released another stellar album and I'm honored to have contributed guitars on three of the tunes. Joe Lange writes some tasty songs, which are prog-like while remaining very accessible. You can listen by clicking the link to the right >>>.

  • Production on my new ambient album is in progress and I'm hoping for a release in 2023. I think you'll love it!

  • Finally, I'm thinking of doing an ambient treatment of a Rush tune. Do you like the idea? If so, contact me and tell me which songs you'd like to hear.
