Dan and the Wildfire

Saturday, May 13 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Soulful rock n’ roll. That’s the best way to describe Boston’s Dan & the Wildfire. Since 2011, they’ve been crushing stages around the country with elements of soul, folk, blues, jazz, and country. With two full length albums in tow, Smoke Signals (2012) and Bull Moose (2015), the Wildfire crew is excited to bring on a new phase in 2017. Their new single, Nothing But Love, dropped in February, and the band is currently gearing up to record a fresh batch of tunes. In the meantime, they're spreading wildfire throughout the Northeast.
