The Bird-Mann Project came together in the spring and summer of 2018. Our common love of many kinds of music all the way from Tom Petty (a big favorite), to The Beatles, Neil Young, Pink Floyd, and many more shaped our song list. We especially are proud of our own original songs and think you will like them, too!
Dan: After twelve years with the rock band, The Jacks, I went back to school and began a career in education. I taught sixth-grade for seven years and then moved on to a technology training position for fifteen more. And now I've come full circle and am playing music again. I write a lot of music and have quite a few of my songs on YouTube and SoundCloud. You can get to them easily by visiting my personal music webpage: http://danbirdmusic.com
I was lucky to find Brian to work with. We share musical heroes and tastes, so it is a natural to work together.
Note: Dan has been inducted into the Iowa Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with his partners in The Jacks in 2019! The band has been invited to be inducted into the Nebraska Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this coming year as well!
Brian: Possibly the #1 Tom Petty expert and fan. He feels a kinship with Tom's music and songwriting. Brian loves to play Petty's music and knows many of his songs. The Duo plays quite a few. Brian is a prolific song writer and many of his songs are featured at the live shows of The Project. Playing acoustic and electric guitars, both lead and rhythm, he blends his sounds with Dan's to form a rich tapestry of music.
You will be surprised at the full sounds a duo can produce!
