Mismatched & Disheveled
DanHolmesGroup is one of the Midwest's most sought after bands. With a keyboard-sax-drum-bass set up, this four piece group puts on a show all ages can enjoy. Their original music is a little bit of New Orleans mixed with some funk rock as told by a singer/songwriter. WHAT IS DanHolmesGroup ABOUT? When Dan formed DanHolmesGroup, he sought out only the best musicians. He pulled together the talents of the legendary Steve Brunner on drums, Big Bill Ritter on bass, Karl 'the Mouth' Leichty on sax, and Dan himself is on keys. They are not your typical act. They customize each show to each venue they play. If you go to see them at a rock club, you'll hear a rock show. Or if you see them in a blues club, you'll hear a blues show. They are very comfortable performing as a duo, trio, or quartet. You'll have to go to a lot of shows to get the full effect of this versatile act! WHO IS DAN HOLMES? Dan Holmes became an active part in Indianapolis' music scene in 1994. Playing every chance he could, he quickly became a fill-in keyboard player for many different bands. Within the past few years, he played all over the Midwest with a national act, opened a retail music store (MUSIC STATION in Avon, IN), began giving lessons, and produced a radio show dedicated to promoting Indiana's live music scene on WKLU KOOL 101.9. Dan's debut CD (PURE) was listed in the Indianapolis Star twice, first in the 'take note' review column by David Lindquist ('...truly original...'), then later in the top ten best albums of the year (fifth place) also by David Lindquist. Later, PURE was reviewed in NUVO by Melodie & Harmonie, where they gave it 4-1/2 out of 5 stars.
