Julian Velard gave me this soundbite in an interview this year:
“I never really consider my music “Jazz”. I came to the piano  late, and jazz was a way to learn the skills I needed to write tunes. I was always interested in writing songs, first and foremost. I think that’s my connection to the antifolk scene. Apart from the gimmickery and sarcasm, antifolk is really about songwriting. I felt connected to them, even though
my music is, I think, very different. Plus when I started out, Sidewalk Cafe had the best open mic. As long as you were good, you could get an audience there. And even if you weren’t good, you could.”

Songwriter Michelle Mays gave the show a quote: “It’s more of an experience than a program! Humor, music, and Dan’s contemplative yet stimulating comments make for a refreshing and pleasant evening. Simply wonderful!”
