Description

This will be a full band show featuring Dan’s European Touring and Recording Band, comprised of Rob Daiker on guitar (Portland), Brooke Lizotte on Keys (Seattle), Robert Ikiz on drums and percussion (Istanbul) and Bengan Jonasson on bass (Stockholm).

Sometimes referred to as an updated version of Mother’s Finest, the Dan Reed Network was one of a handful of groups (Living Colour, Follow for Now, Fishbone) that challenged rock’s racial stereotypes during the late ‘80s and early ’90s. Multiracial but less political and with a more feel-good AOR bent than its peers, the Pacific Northwest quintet skirted stardom on a few occasion. The first single, “Ritual,” became a Top 40 hit in the U.S. in 1988 and the group toured at home and abroad, opening for such diverse acts as UB40, Run-D.M.C., and the Jets. The following year, the Network released a second album, Slam; produced by Nile Rodgers, it drew critical raves for its refinement of their rock-funk fusion, and the band was increasingly popular in Europe, where they opened some shows on the Rolling Stones’ 1990 Steel Wheels tour.
