#3 (Not sure if they're still active, leaving it here as a courtesy) Starting off in September of 2009. Great Dane formed under creative direction of writer Sean McVerry. Stefano Guida, the best bass player in town, jumped on the Great Dane train early working with Sean on some bangin' ass tunes. Very nervous that he would like his ideas, Sean played with Brendon Caroselli, and hoped for the best.
Not only did Brendon enjoy playing the songs, he bought Sean a delicious lobster dinner that night. Practicing and playing once at the Student Center. Great Dane began to record a 6 song E.P with famed producer and SKSC trombonist, Eric Holsten. Holsten, after listening to the songs, determined that horns would indeed be a good addition to the band.
Sean and everyone else agreed. Who better to ask then jazz masters Andrew Cowie (Saxophone) and Andrew Russell (Trumpet) and member of Swingfish. The six quickly meshed and indulged frequently in the cuisine of Nicky's Pizza in White Plains NY. Playing a few shows around SUNY Purchase, Great Dane is now beginning to branch out and increase there fan support.
It's piano, it's rock, it's pop, and it's Ffun. Waking up Slowly, The six song E.P is due very soon and will be available FREE at shows and online. Give us a chance, you wont be dissapointed. GREAT DANE, FOREVA Read more on Last.fm.
