Dan Patlansky at the Cape Farmhouse Restaurant, Red Hill
One overcast Saturday afternoon, in a land far, far away from the rest of civilization, crowds huddled together on patches of grass (sometimes in the rain) to get a glimpse at the musical magician that is Dan Patlansky.
Technical brilliance outshone only by his intense feel, Dan takes you on a journey from gentle pauses to rip-roaring solos with mind-bending speed, skill and style playing most of his sets with songs from the aptly titled album, Move my Soul.
Not a single note out of place. He opens his mouth and further awes the audience with his mature-beyond-his-years voice and humble attitude.
A life-changing revelation for first-timers and for those that have been privileged enough to catch him before (like most of the rain-enduring, dedicated fans), he still manages to blow you away every time.
