What do we ever really know about our local butcher? Usually not much. They might have a good sense of humour, maybe even throw an extra sausage in the bag every now and then, or they might be the dark myterious type, a bit like our own Dan Clark who works at Lennox Head Butchery.

By night, this quietly spoken butcher turns into a singing, strumming entertainer. And he’s not just another dude who picked up a guitar and learned Stairway to Heaven in his bedroom.

Dan is an amazingly talented, sweet singer, with incredible vocal control and range, who delivers his music with heart and skill.

Dan’s music is probably best descibed as Indie Folk Rock, and he covers songs by the likes of Vance Joy, Daft Punk, Mumford & Sons and the Black Keys, plus older faves like REM.

He grew up and went to school locally after moving from Sydney when he was young. He picked up the guitar when he was in his early teens, but has had guitar and vocal lessons over the years. And it shows.

These days he fronts the Dan Clark Band and the Dan Clark Duo, depending on the venue and type of gig. But ever since he was old enough he has played in bands and done plenty of gigs, (including some biggies like Sunday Safari at the Beach Hotel) and heaps of weddings.

He is in great demand in his local community with gigs lined up at Club Lennox on sunday arvo 29 June and Lennox Hotel with the full band on the night of August 8. Check him out on Facebook—TheDanClarkBandMusic. Written by the LENNOX WAVE.

The Dan Clark Band was founded on 2011. The following band members include,

Dan Clark - Lead Singer

Sam Shine - Lead Guitar

Nick Fitzpatrick - Bass Guitar

Ben Cox - Drummer

Yolan

22/03/2015 5:00 pm

556792_601019226616824_496774026_nMany artists struggle to establish their musical identity, laboriously trying on different musical styles like a piece of clothing, looking to find what fits. But there are others that emerge fully formed, in full command of their craft, their identity and their music. Yolan fits firmly in the latter category. Her style and live performances are a captivating and moving experience that heralds the arrival of a gifted and significant new talent, one whose music feels familiar in the best possible way, while striking out on its own territory.

Yolan is a passionate storyteller who has the ability to make any song her own. Not ever wanting to be labeled as fitting into a particular genre, Yolan finds her style in everything from 60’s rock n roll, to heartfelt folk ballads, to soul, funk and blues. Her aim is to take the audience on a joyful musical journey.

Over the past two years Yolan has been performing solo, however the New Year has brought a fuller sound with the addition of Jimmy Dobbs, who is an accomplished musician, having played in a variety of bands and as a soloist for many years, and Wayne Laidlaw, our talented percussionist who adds his tonal qualities with the conga’s and bongo’s. Steve Tester, our bass player comes on board if we need to add a different element to our performance. Individually we each bring something unique to our sound, but together we create a vibe that has been very well received in the local area, playing venues like the ‘Shaw bay’, ‘The Eltham’, ‘The Federal’ ,‘The Slipway’, and ‘Lennox’ hotels on a regular basis. We look forward to branching out and continuing our journey in Byron and surrounding areas.
