at the Dubliner

Friday, Aug 9 · 9:00 pm - 1:00 am
DD and Company

DD & Company is Dick Danaher (accordion, clarinet, tenor saxophone, vocals) and Nick Jordan (guitar, vocals, tinwhistle, and foot percussion) and Philip Rampi (percussion).

They play and sing Swing, Zydeco, Western Swing, Old-Time Country, Rockabilly, and Jug-Band music, plus the odd Tango and Irish jig. The tie that binds their music is catchy dance rhythms from many cultures, propelled by the big voice of the accordion, jazzy solos on clarinet and sax, the rich tones of an electric archtop guitar of fine vintage, fierce double percussion from a small drum kit and relentless foot percussion in the French Canadian style. All band members sing enthusiastically.

Dick Danaher is a long-time luminary of the Twin Cities roots music scene, on various saxophones and accordion, most recently with Dan Newton and the late and great Rockin’ Pinecones; Philip Rampi plays bass / percussion, octave mandolin, banjo and cello with the adventurous string band treVeld, and with Josh Cleveland and the Cedar Street Band; Nick Jordan is a guitarist and singer with a love for many kinds of roots music; he is equally fond of sublime Swing ballads and raucous Jug-band hollers. He has been working for years in a duo with fiddler Mary DuShane of Prairie Home Companion fame.

DD & Company aims to get you up and dancing!
