However, if you ask Dana what he loves, his response is simple: “I’m a guitar player”... one who is quick to credit Toto’s Steve Lukather as his main influence. As a guitar player, the stage is a second home. Having shared the studio or stage with a wide array of artists, including Phil Driscoll, James WardKen Medema, Secret Service (with Ward and Rusty), and a host of others, as well as fronting his own bands.  Dana has a musical palette spanning different styles and genres. For over 35 years, he credits Ward as being his “Jeff Porcaro”: “He’s my big brother, my music critic, and my sounding board for life in general. There’s no drummer I’d rather play, fight, or laugh with.” When he’s not playing music, Dana stays busy being a husband, a dad to 3 young ladies, and a sparring partner to their dog, Finn.
