Dann Russo plays in and around Boston as a solo artist, rocking venues like The Burren, Tres Gatos and the Lizard Lounge. With reckless abandon, Dann (and sometimes his band) leans into driving, acoustic rock and sweet sweet ballads.
Dann has had the fortune of playing some amazing places, in front of and with some amazing people. He's been a finalist at the Lizard Lounge Open Mic Challenge 4 times and has won once. He's played shows in Dublin, Ireland, Barcelona, Spain, Toronto, Canada, as well as up and down the North East corridor of the USA.
Currently, Dann's in the process of putting together a new EP, having recorded "Cross The Line," "We Were There," and "My Friends' Band Play" with George Woods at The Record Company in Boston, MA.
But mainly, he likes to have fun on stage. And bring the crowd along with him.
"whether he's playing a rockin song or a quiet song there is this childlike energy and fun in everything he does on stage" - Tom Bianchi, host, Lizard Lounge Open Mic Challenge.
when Dann was in Dublin for the day in June, 2015, he "accidentally" took this video of "My Friends' Band Play" in front of the "Wall of Fame" in the Temple Bar district.
To quote the song - "told you you would like it/you know that I can't lie"
