Dan Hazlett ~ Songwriter
Humor & Hightops
Dan Hazlett (pronounced HAZE-let) is an accomplished, polished performer who entertains and uplifts his audiences with a blend of his smooth, soulful voice, his finely honed acoustic guitar work, and his arsenal of well-crafted and thoughtfully presented songs.
Weaving in and out of folk, jazz and a Will Rogers style of down-home humor, Dan captivates his listeners with subject matter ranging from the ordinary silliness of everyday life to the unexpected intensity of dramatic interludes – and always while wearing his signature red high-top sneakers!
A multi-instrumentalist, Dan’s live shows are punctuated with acoustic guitar, harmonica, and trumpet. He’s been a member of several bands including CBS R&B recording artists Energy, the rock bands Meadow, Mickey Finn, The Whistleblowers and is currently a member of the Doctor Swing Band.
“Dan’s unique vocal styling is paired with excellent guitar playing and thoughtful lyrics. His guitar skills add a great dimension to the original, imaginative lyrics, coming together into a complete package of musicality.”
“Dan writes his heart’s stories, weaving them into a lyrical web of beauty, courage, childhood memories, old automobiles and family trees.”
“Excellent songwriting . . . Dan has a way of keeping his audience in the palm of his hand . . . This is one of our favorite performers. We love his songs, we love his guitar playing, we love his performance.”
