Live in Columbus
'A combination of Jerry Lee Lewis, Professor Longhair, and Fats Waller on steroids!' raves WMBC disc jockey and fellow musician Bobby Smith about Danny Beirne. This disc presents Danny as his fans know him: dazzling piano virtuosity... raw, gutsy vocals... his nutty sense of humor... his sheer energy igniting an obviously rapt audience. This is a party, feel-good record. After the success of Danny's first solo CD, the all original 'Danny Beirne Sings Everything... + 12 Other Big Hits", our fearless-fingered friend wondered what to do for his next outing. So many people at his live performances would ask if they could get a CD of what they just heard him play for them, so he decided to bring in recording engineer BJ Davis and The Sonic Lounge mobile recording facility to Fat's Billiards in Columbus, OH, to record a live set. The result is this electrifying collection about which you're reading right now. When Danny performs live, he's a rock'n'roll animal, banging and screaming his heart out, pulling songs out of the air, fielding requests, and of course, more than amply demonstrating his original compositions. Already being used in piano instruction, this CD illustrates Danny's remarkable piano technique in all it's brilliance. As one fan writes: "He's all over the place- banging and doing runs up and down the keyboard like nobody's business, but his left hand is what amazes me. There's a steady, constant bass line that never falters. I can't stop stomping my feet!" With a fan base of celebrities ranging from Chuck Berry ("He ain't white!) to Dave Matthews ("What a great guy!"), Danny is the world's greatest undiscovered pianist-singer-songwriter. Be the first one on your block to catch the Beirne boogie fever! It's spreading!
