Dan Hanrahan Trio & Dave Sanders Quartet
Firmly rooted in the jazz tradition, guitarist Dan Hanrahan’s playing has been described as “classic, literate, and swinging”. Since graduating from Temple University’s Boyer College of Music in 2009, Dan has been making a living in Philadelphia as a guitarist and educator. Dan has performed at several Philadelphia area venues such as Chris’ Jazz Cafe, Ortlieb’s Jazzhaus, The Deer Head Inn, The Kimmel Center, and has shared the stage with Benny Golson, Dick Oatts, Terell Stafford, George Garzone, and Bruce Barth. Currently, Dan works with several performing bands including the After Hours Trio with vocalist Najwa Parkins, the Tap Room Trio, and the rock/pop band Onufrak. He also leads his own band which performs original music as well as jazz standards. Dan’s intention is to bring his own voice and experiences to the tradition he admires in order to create an honest and personal sound.
