Dan has spent the last 25 years as a professional musician, fronting the classic rock band “The Sinners Club” as well as playing the Bill Wyman bassist role in a locally renowned Rolling Stones tribute band named the “Rolling Tones” alongside another Wilson alum, Tim Baltus ‘76. He has performed over 2300 shows at venues and events such as the Rose Garden Arena, Crystal Ballroom, Portland Meadows Race Track, Rose Festival, The Bite Of Oregon, Tigard Festival Of Balloons, 92.3 KGON-FM events, casinos, weddings, corporate functions, TV specials and commercials, plus numerous nightclubs throughout the western US.
Dan's current “day job” in the printing industry finds him working as Store Manager at the PIP Printing location on Pacific Hwy in Tigard, where he runs into many Wilson alumni that are his customers.
Some of his greatest high school memories are winning the District championships in Lincoln-Douglas Debate and Extemporaneous Speaking in ’74 and ’75.
