The Dan King Band

Monday / June 22, 2009 / 8:15 p.m.
Berklee Performance Center
136 Massachusetts Avenue
United States

Singer/songwriter Dan King performs with David Brown, Dave Mattacks, and Wolf Ginandes. Their first combined full-length studio effort, Western Color, overflows with wasted love, light, rumors, and castaways—a ragged journey of sound and story combining folk, rock, and roots music.

Guitarist David Brown is known for his work with Billy Joel, Dr. John, and Simon and Garfunkel. Wolf Ginandes is a bass veteran known around the Berklee campus, Boston, and beyond.

Drummer Dave Mattacks started performing with big bands in the UK before he joined the influential folk/rock group Fairport Convention. He also freelanced extensively throughout his tenure with the band. In 2000, Mattacks emigrated to Boston, where he continues to enjoy a full career as both a musician and a producer, spanning live and studio work.

Mattacks's discography includes five CDs with Paul McCartney and various albums and tours with—among many others—Sandy Denny, Nick Drake, Brian Eno, Jethro Tull, Elton John, Jimmy Page, Cat Stevens, XTC, and Loudon Wainwright.

Part of the World Percussion Festival.
