Dan Darrah at Fitzgeralds Sidebar Stage with his band
Longtime Chicagoland Native Dan Darrah returns to the stage with a band of some of Chicago's best. With a soulful voice and honest lyrics, you can expect to see him sitting behind his 1960s Wurlitzer electric piano playing a mix of original songs and fresh takes on cover tunes.
Dan released his first album "Farina Dumpling" in September of 1999. The song "Jungle Gym Literature" was featured on the 2003 Aware/Columbia Records Compilation #9 album along with Jack Johnson.
In 2003 Dan was invited to play the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, TX as a featured performer.
In 2017 he signed a publishing deal with Fervor Records that placed his music in the HBO show "Somebody Somewhere" as well as the CW show "Riverdale".
He has shared the stage with The BoDeans, Sister Hazel, Guster, The Samples, Umphrey's McGee, Jesse Harris, 10,000 Maniacs, John Mayhall, Marty Lloyd Band, and The North Mississippi AllStars.
