Daniel Lesperance, "Alaska Dan," began playing music at the age of four in New Mexico. Dan and his guitar are one on stage. Dan played with a local band at weddings, fiestas, and local clubs. He moved to Alaska in the early 80’s. A true guitar virtuoso, his roots are evident in his smooth country style, with “spicy” rock, and Latin mixed-in. In 2004, Dan won the Nashville Palace Country Music Contest at the Anchorage County Fair for an opportunity to play on-stage at the Nashville Palace…a thrill that would inspire Dan to make music his full-time endeavor. In 2012, Dan won the Radio 96.3 Wolf Singer/Songwriter Contest in Anchorage, Alaska. This win gave Dan and his wife, Patricia, the impetus to travel and sing full-time. In 2012, they “packed-up” the house, gave a lot away, took their gear, and made the road their home. In 2019, they bought a home in Quartzsite, Arizona. The Quartzsite winter crowds revel in Dan’s diverse talent and unmatched guitar sounds. They still travel around the United States playing to appreciative fans! I hope you enjoy my music, and I’ll see you down the road sometime!
