Bass[/su_column][su_column size=”3/4″]Danny’s vision for The IMPACT Society Band, and the New Youth Culture Tour has developed out of his love for music and his passion for helping others. An avid bass guitarist, Danny has been playing since he was 17 years old. He was a co-founding member of a local, popular Maryland Bands Masquerade 1983-86, and The Vandals 1990-94. Unfortunately, substance abuse sidelined Danny’s musical aspiration for many years. After finally surrendering to recovery from addictions in 2006, Danny rediscovered his love of music and has been making up for lost time.
Danny writes all of the songs for The IMPACT Society with the help of his dear friend Mike C. Danny believes that music has the power to transcend barriers and to bring people together for the common good of all. He is thrilled to be working alongside his lifelong friends Rennie and JC, playing “music that matters” for people who care!
