News & Updates
Thanks for stopping by the brand new, and very much improved, Danandthewildfire.com. Aside from our makeover, there have been some huge things going on in the world of wildfire.
For one thing, we’ve released our record, Bull Moose, which we’d been working on for the better part of a year. The reactions we’ve been getting from fans, friends, and family alike have been so humbling, and the record seems to be gaining steam and popularity every day. It has definitely been a great experience.
You can buy the record on iTunes here:
Secondly, we’ve been reaching a broader audience than ever with our online shows via Concert Window. We’re going to make it a point to schedule at least one of these a month until people lose interest, and we’re going to change up each one with different themes. For instance, we might dress up like pirates, play in togas, or any number of ridiculous things. We want your input, so make sure you drop us a line on Facebook or via e-mail and join the conversation.

Finally, we are back to playing live shows! We are always on the hunt for new venues, and new places is to go, so make sure that you tell us where you want us to spread wildfire!
Check back often. Be excellent to each other.
Until next time,
Dan & the Wildfire
Dan and the Wildfire is a particularly potent cocktail comprised of 1 part old time mountain folk, 1 part classic rock and roll, and 3 parts bottom shelf bourbon. Mix it up and what you get is a musical experience that burns it's way into your bones and lights up your soul with a crisp, rootsy sound that'll leave you reeling for another taste of that Wildfire. This Boston based band was started by guitarist and singer-songwriter Dan HL in 2011 with trumpeter Thom Brennan and Keyboardist Matt Hines under the auspices of forging a softer, folk sound. After adding drummer Kyle Jenkins, however, their sound grew beyond the folk boundary but it wasn't until bassist Sam Katz joined the band that the last piece of the Wildfire rock experience came into place. To date, Dan and the Wildfire have played all over New England, Washington D.C., out to Chicago and burned down every place in between. Their third studio album 'Bull Moose', released in March of 2015, is the next chapter in the evolution of the folk, rock experience. Their well received second album 'Smoke Signals' is available worldwide and follows their debut album, 'Nothing, Anything, Everything' released under the moniker 'Dan HL' in 2011.
