Dan Nimmer

Dan Nimmer was born in 1982 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. An old soul in a young body, Mr. Nimmer plays with the spirit, the passion and the soul of someone who has been on the planet much longer. With prodigious technique and innate sense of swing, his playing often recalls that of his own heroes, specifically Oscar Peterson, Wynton Kelly, Erroll Garner and Art Tatum.

As a young man, Mr. Nimmer's family inherited a piano and he started playing by ear; he was, if you will, “called” by the instrument. Soon, he asked his parents for some piano lessons. He then began to study classical music with pianist Barbara Bunge. It wasn't long before he was studying with jazz pianist Mark Davis at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music. At the same time, he began playing gigs in Milwaukee with renowned saxophonist Berkley Fudge.
