Dan started out taking piano lessons in the early 60's and continued, studying with Charles Wade, Archie Mosley, Paul Mitchell, Don Reitan and Don Tweedy among others. He started playing professionally in the nightclubs and bars of Atlanta at an early age. Always hidden behind the bass player, drummer or an upright piano with a low stool, he continued these weekend gigs until the long arm of the law and the musicians union forced him out of the nightclubs at the tender age of 12.
