Dan Sieckman

American born Jazz Guitarist Dan Sieckman received a Bachelor of Music from Arizona State University in 1981. He played extensively in the Phoenix area during the late seventies and early eighties in a variety of jazz and commercial settings.

Dan took a somewhat different path than many guitarists, primarily learning the jazz idiom from pianists including Dr. Tom Ferguson, Dan Hearle, and Chuck Moronic while at Arizona State. He has also participated in clinics with the likes of Joe Pass, Herb Ellis, and Barney Kessel, to name a few.

Dan took a sabbatical from music for approximately 10 years, pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Information Systems and a career as a Senior Systems Engineer for a global data processing firm.

Dan started playing professionally again in 1992 in Little Rock Arkansas and quickly became widely in demand in the central Arkansas area. Dan was a key member of Dave Rogers Trio in Little Rock and 'The Real Thing Trio' in Hot Springs AR, and the “house” band for the Arkansas Jazz Heritage Foundation's Monday Night Jazz Project at the Afterthought nightclub in Little Rock. Dan also played a number of festivals in Arkansas including RiverFest and The Hot Springs Jazz Festival.

After moving back to Phoenix in 2005, Dan quickly established himself in Guitar/Bass Duo’s that eventually became “Prickly Pair – A Jazz Duo”, playing for corporate event, weddings, and restaurants

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
