About the event
Join us we welcome Dan Trik at Board and Batten, LLC (1408 Walnut) on Thursday, March 23, 2023, 6:30 to 8:30 pm.
Dan’s music will make you feel like you’re having a beer with an old friend, taking stock of where you’ve been, and celebrating the good life with the ones you love.
Dan picked up music early in his hometown of Norwalk, Iowa, and began playing guitar at the age of nine. His musical career has encompassed a wide breadth of genres including “The Golden Gods” (a rock & roll power trio that was based out of the San Francisco Bay Area in the mid-2000s). Their album “The Thorny Crown of Rock & Roll” gained notoriety and prompted an extensive West Coast tour and opening dates for the likes of Sammy Hagar and Fu Man Chu. Their music has been featured on MTV’s “Homewrecker” & “Fast Inc.”, Tony Hawk’s video game “Downhill Jam”, a Vans commercial, the movie “The Waitress” and most recently Showtime’s “Shameless”.
Once back in Iowa Dan co-founded the jazz-inspired funk bands Electric Shag and The Sexual Undertones who were featured at the Crossroads Entertainment Conference held in Des Moines.
Dan is also part of a musical duo, Debbie Doo Wop & Dynamite Dan, featured at prominent festivals such as the Des Moines Arts Festival and has two original children’s albums, performing regularly throughout the Midwest.
Dan carries on the hallowed tradition of great musical storytellers and started performing as a solo musician in 2009. Since then, he’s released two full-length records, “Iowa Weather” and “The Antiparticle Man” plus nine singles.
Dan brings his talent as an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, and his ease in almost any genre, to his new inspired releases. Through the songs, you experience a rich gravy of rootsy musical styles all evenly poured over the meat and potatoes of Dan’s quirky, relatable lyrics and unique, savory songwriting. From the funky and hilarious “Gas Station Hot Dog” to the touching and intimate “Not A Bird” he is showing some new sides of his personality and writing that are only hinted at in his previous work.
Although his songs often detail his personal journey, the power of Dan’s music lies in its ability to reach the listener through their own experiences. His live shows are routinely peppered with requests for a fan’s favorite because they have built their own memories into the lyrical content as all great songs invite you to do.
As always, this is a free event. Something tasty will be provided along with a donation bar. BYO food & beverages are always welcome.
Amazing artwork will be on display along with our eclectic mix of antique, gift and boutique items.
Come and join us and support this amazing local musician.
