Dan Bates is finally able to make time for something that brings joy and a form of escape to himself as well as others. Music. Although the passion and love is there for multiple genres and artists, including favorite Frank Sinatra and even hip hop, country music perhaps speaks to his soul more than any other.
He performs both solo and with fellow artists for various private and public events and venues, playing acoustic versions of popular songs from mostly country, folk, bluegrass and even ’80’s pop genres.
He has several albums under his belt, including a multi-instrumental Christmas album performed and recorded completely by himself and available on iTunes and Amazon.
