hi my name is dan


Howzit. Dan Potthast has been the lead singer/frontman for MU330 since the band first started playing shows in 1988. Dan's songs have been used in numerous TV shows and movies, including The Brendan Leonard Show and the German films "Pas De Deux" and "Dopplepack."With MU330, he has played over 1800 shows all around the world, everywhere from the United States, Canada, Mexico, Hawaii, all over the UK and Europe, Japan, and even Korea.

In the past few years, in addition to touring with MU330, Dan has done a lot of touring and recording of his solo work as well. He has toured all over the US, UK and Europe with just his guitar and boxes of CDs.

Dan has released two solo albums on Asian Man Records. The first, "Eyeballs," is a sparsely arranged album that features mainly acoustic guitar and vocals with a few other instruments ocassionally thrown in here and there. The stripped down approach really showcases Dan's amazing songwriting ability and his powerfull voice.

On Dan's second solo album, "Sweets and Meats," Dan goes for a full band sound with the addition of drums (Lance Reynolds of Bitchy and the Blue Meanies), bass, and organ (James Rickmann from Slow Gherkin), while still maintaining an organic acoustic guitar sound that doesn't get in the way of the songwriting.

Dan spent most of 2003 playing solo shows around California, the UK and Europe. During time off, he has managed to assemble a touring band consisting of Greg Braithwaite on drums ("Sin In Space" and "Meat Pizza Sandwich") and Shannon Toombs on bass ( "The Cat Dog Acoustic Explosion") The three piece band has been playing shows around CA, and have also been working on writing and arranging a new album, and are hoping to be in the studio recording sometime in the spring of 2004.
