AWARD-WINNING PATLANSKY PERFORMS AT ATTERBURY THEATRE, PRETORIA
with SPECIAL GUEST LONESOME DAVE FERGUSON
Date: Monday, 27 July 2015
Venue: Atterbury Theatre, Pretoria
When you hear the name Dan Patlansky, it immediately conjures up images of the genius guitarist, singer/songwriter and globally respected purveyor of the Blues that he is. On 27 July 2015, Dan will perform at The Atterbury Theatre in Pretoria with special guest, Lonesome Dave Ferguson.
Dan is back in South Africa after finishing the third leg of his four leg 2015 European Tour to promote his latest album, Dear Silence Thieves - where he visited Europe in May, June and July and performed shows in the UK, Poland, The Netherlands and Germany.
Dan is still enjoying the success of his seventh album, Dear Silence Thieves, which was voted #1 Blues Rock Album in the World for 2014 by Blues Rock Review – USA. Last year also saw Dan performing as opening act for Bruce Springsteen’s tour to South Africa. Comfortably into his second generation of frayed, Fender electric-fuelled storytelling, the Blues and Dan Patlansky are welded at the hip.
After Dear Silence Thieves swept up the number one spot in 2014, Dan received rave reviews in European and international press for the album. Dear Silence Thieves was released in the UK on 27 April 2015, the same day he performed a launch showcase concert at The Borderline in London. In March 2015, legendary guitarist Joe Satriani also announced Dan Patlanksy as special guest on his UK Shockwave November 2015 tour.
Special guest ‘Lonesome’ Dave Ferguson, a one-man lo-fi-hi-impact explosion of Trans-Blues and Country-Dub. He uses only harmonica, human beat-box and vocals, recording live loops and then layering and building those loops to construct a song. Although it's a solo act, it's not your typical singer-song-whiner type show - expect more in your face dance-style grooves served up in a Deep-South style.
