Dan Gober, a native of Philadelphia, PA, is a singer / songwriter who has been an active member of the music scene for over 15 years. From his early rock roots to his intricate work with sound experiments, he has always been crafting his many different genres of tunes and styles. Dan gets his inspirations from life experiences and has written and recorded 'hundreds' of songs. When not on stage performing, Dan is working in the studio, Lunar Face Records, a partnership-owned company with Buddy Sweets. Dan Gober has been pushing the envelope for solo acoustic performers. Onstage with his supercharged presence and his blend of humor and wit, in a deep gritty voice he sings about women, fried chicken, money, death and whiskey. Dressed in angel wings and a sharp suit he'll cut his way into your backbone. Making you shake your trunk to his signature Junk Rock. Dan's debut album, "little fish," is a collection of music written during 2005. It features his latest style of soulful vocals and melodic progressions, grouping together some new musicians as well as some great old friends. His live performances leave people blown away and wanting more of his signature "junk rock." Prior to his solo career, Dan has had success with several other projects including TV Heroes and ennui. TV Heroes was formed in late 2001 by Dan Gober and his brother, Buddy Sweets. The music consisted of catchy tunes that ranged in style from rock, blues, reggae, rockabilly, folk, and even a little country. Dan and Buddy made it a point to have as much fun as possible with their songwriting and performances. Dan formed a side project, Peels, in 1997 to experiment with songs and sounds. He recorded seven albums in four years. Peels went on to become a song bin for pieces that did not work for TV Heroes or ennui and is still an active project. Ennui began in 1994 and within three years became a well respected Philadelphia band, remaining the mystery behind their complex arrangements. Their luscious spacey landscapes of delayed guitars and liquid light shows created a stir and won them a noted following in the area. They released their debut album, "Show Low" in 1998 and their highlight was opening for Ween at their hometown bar, John & Peters, in New Hope, PA. Whether performing solo or with the full band. You can be sure that this Junk Man is gonna rock.
