Paul plays with Dan Zlotnick Band at the beautiful rustic outdoor Hardscrabble Cider in North Salem.

Dan Zlotnick of Westchester County, NY brings a wide range of influence to his heartfelt Americana style. Listeners of all ages love watching Dan pick and strum his vintage acoustic guitar as he tells stories with his rich voice and thoughtful lyrics. The Dan Zlotnick Band dedicates their chops to serve Dan's songs. Their set flows effortlessly through down-home roots music, honky-tonk country blues, and soul-pouring rock 'n' roll jams. Dan has rocked the stages of the Paramount Hudson Valley, Pleasantville Music Festival, Tarrytown Music Hall, and Garcia’s at The Capitol Theatre. He has also opened shows for Grammy winner Marc Cohn, guitar legend Arlen Roth, Top-40 Country Artist Jessica Lynn, and Americana's favorite father, Jim Avett. He has traveled over much of the eastern U.S. on his self-booked tours, connecting with music fans on more than 150 nights per year. No matter the venue, audience members leave Dan’s shows feeling like they have a new friend. Full bio at www.DanZlotnick.com/about
