Voted as one of Washington, DC’s "Hottest 5” musicians in 2010 and featured in the DC Metromix primetime special on CBS (WUSA*9), he is quickly garnering regional acclaim. Drawing comparisons to fellow Virginia natives Dave Matthews, Jason Mraz, and Pat McGee, Fisk’s ability to write memorable melodies coupled with his trademark percussive guitar-style is inspiring a loyal fan following. He has performed at events as diverse as New York’s Park Avenue Festival and has become a regular at leading local venues such as IOTA and Jammin Java. Coby is proud to welcome Dan back to his alma mater for a special performance. For more info about Dan go to: http://www.danfisk.com/about.cfm
