Oral History Information
Dana Daniel played drums for his father’s big band when he was young. Being exposed to not just the musical side of performances from a young age, Dana became interested in the production side of performances. He became a pro lighting director for artists such as Charlie Daniels and Tom Petty and later for the Civic Center in Pensacola, Florida. For a time he worked in pro audio and pro lighting sales at Harris Music, which when it closed became the building Blues Angel Music moved into. Dana made the transition and ran his own audio companies for several years before selling his company and returning to Blues Angel Music in 2019, rejoining the staff he calls his second family.
