Dan Schnell

dan_schnell_1Been playing out since I was 16. I've played in Equinox, Exit, This, Sun Machine, and Secret Saucer. My fun gig is an acoustic solo/duo/trio thing, we were called “Sandy & the Man-bitches” (among other band names)/ I'm in Secret Saucer ‘cause Steve called me and asked if I wanted to show up and play. I did.dan_schnell_2

I am Dan. I am a musician, playing gigs since I was a teenager. I have been so fortunate to play with very talented singers and players over the years. We have made some beautiful music, particularly singing with my dear Sandy. To quote Joachim-Ernst Berendt, (The World is Sound), “at the root of all power and motion, there is music and rhythm, the play of patterned frequencies against the matrix of time. We know that every particle in the physical universe takes its characteristics from the pitch and pattern and overtones of its particular frequencies, its singing. Before we make music, music makes us.”
