The lights go down, the crowd gets up and everybody starts to sing as onto the stage steps the acoustic prophet of Rock and Soul.
Dann Russo pours rock, blues, country, gospel and every other type of real down-home music into his performance like the sweat that pours from his brow. He doesn't strum - he beats his guitar, wrenching emotion out of it. He doesn't sing - he energizes crowds with his sometimes gruff, sometimes gravelly, sometimes sweet voice.
Dann is a force to be reckoned with, a "soon to be phenomenon" (NorthEast In-Tune Magazine) with "rock-and-roll abandon" (Newark, NJ Star-Ledger) both solo and with his band The Whisky.
Dann recently has become a fan favorite in the on-line world of Second Life (http://www.secondlife.com) as Dann Numbers, playing his originals seemingly every day multiple times a day with no songs repeated (these shows' locations are listed as "other" on the calendar and are Pacific Time) streaming from the confines of his basement to computer speakers around the world.
He has also played in some of the best RL bars from Toronto to the Carolinas, and is looking forward to adding more tacks to his "places I've played" map.
