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
