RHYTHMIC - CREATIVE - MUSICAL
Dan Sia is constantly pushing the boundaries between performer, arranger, and show producer. Dan works hard to create super-slick shows that highlight amazing musical arrangements and that are audience engaging. Dan has created and leads the band for the ultimate tribute to the Queen of Pop called Madonna's Immaculate Collection - The Tribute. He is the driving force behind the energetic, powerful salute to the pop divas of the 1980's called Retro: 80's Ladies. Other productions Dan has co-created include a pop-fusion group ala Dirty Loops called The Remix. His energy and musicianship bring out the highest quality performances in the musicians he works with.
Not only is Dan a talented musician but he is also an accomplished music arranger. Dan's attention to detail and desire to create musically perfect arrangements comes from his many years as a sight reading musician who had to perform for headline acts who provided poorly written charts and arrangements. From this frustration grew a passion for creating full band charts as well as click and backing tracks. Dan uses both Sibelius 7.5 and Ableton Live 9 to create custom charts and backing tracks. Check out the arrangement section on this website for already created charts and tracks or email Dan if you're interested in having custom arrangements made.
