Dueling Pianos with Dan Holmes and Shannon Bengford

Dan Holmes is a piano player, specializing in driven blues-rock. His fans instantly know his unmistakable songwriting and piano playing style. His original music is a little bit of New Orleans mixed with some piano funk rock as told by a singer/songwriter. Dan's style of piano playing conjures up memories for his audience of players such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Dr. John, and Pinetop Perkins, while his storytelling in his songs has been compared to the Beatles and Randy Newman.

Dan Holmes is always performing somewhere. Sometimes as a solo piano/vocal act, and sometimes with a piano-guitar-drum-bass set up, his act always puts on a show all ages can enjoy. On an average night, he will mix in with his original material some old soul tunes or jazz standards, maybe some forgotten rock tune, and definitely a bunch of piano boogie. He customizes each show to each venue he plays. He is very interactive with his audience, and prides himself on being a very energetic act.

Dan Holmes has been performing professionally since 1993. Playing every opportunity he can, his talents send him to perform regularly all over the country, including Los Angeles, New Orleans, Austin, Chicago, Indianapolis, and hundreds of other places. He has been heard on a wide variety of radio programs, including the nationally syndicated Bob & Tom Show and National Public Radio.

Dan has released ten albums of his original material, and he appears on countless other artist's albums. He is always on tour performing over 200 dates per year, and never stops writing new material for his future albums.

DanHolmesGroup hails from San Marcos, Texas, and prides themselves on catering their performance to the individual needs of each event.
