Dan graduated from Xavier High School in 1985, during which time he honed his bass guitar skills as he was part of a 3 boy band in North Brandford. He began studying literature at UMass Boston, but focused mostly on music with his 2 band mates also attending Boston colleges. Their skills and popularity grew quickly playing in bars from Boston to New York City. Eventually, Dan joined Pale Ocean, a New Haven area band, whose first album became very popular, rising high on the college charts. He continued playing with various New Haven bands such as The Button Downs, The Bittersweet Vine, Hi-Fi Automatic and even did a Pale Ocean re-union in April 2022.
