DAN TEDESCO + HANNAH VONDERHOFF

DAN TEDESCO + HANNAH VONDERHOFF

$6 IN ADVANCE/$8 AT THE DOOR

Dan Tedesco is the quintessential modern-day troubadour, narrating the American experience in song honestly and intimately, and with a big sound to boot. A solo artist, Tedesco's stage show is framed by a minimalist production that finds him belting out folk-spiced rockers from behind acoustic, at times distorted, guitar while foot-stomping percussion rounds out many of the arrangements.  This is one solo artist who won't seem out of place on a bill with rock bands. Interludes at the piano lighten the mood a little, but only a little, as the distorted Rhodes and Wurly sounds only contribute to Dan's stage presence. Overall, you can expect the twang of John Prine, the attitude of Ike Reilly, the picking of Steve Goodman, and shades of Paul Simon. Similarities aside, however, Dan Tedesco is at one extremely talented and intensely original.
