Danny Mayer has spent the last 10 years on the road with his guitar and he has no plans of stopping any time soon.
Danny Mayer has been through endless coast to coast journeys alongside Alan Evans (Soulive) and Beau Sasser (Kung Fu) in The Alan Evans Trio. He has spent over a decade of touring, writing and recording with his own On The Spot Trio. He’s shared the stage with members of the Grateful Dead, Lettuce, Snarky Puppy, The New Mastersounds, Trey Anastasio Band, Ryan Montbleau, Turkuaz, Kung Fu and many more in countless collaborations. In addition to recently joining the Eric Krasno (Soulive/Lettuce) Band, Danny Mayer has funneled his raw musicality and grounded spirituality into a trio of his own with a name that is as straightforward and lucid as the music itself. The Danny Mayer Trio, aka DMT, has created a sound that transcends beyond rock n’ roll while maintaining roots in funk. The band features Michelangelo Carubba (Turkuaz) on drums and Nate Edgar (The Nth Power, John Brown’s Body) on bass alongside Mayer on guitar. This band has seamlessly come onto the scene in 2016 having already shared the stage with bands such as Kung Fu, Tom Hamilton’s American Babies, and many more. In addition to the core trio, DMT has also welcomed guest vocalists Shira Elias (Turkuaz) and Mary Corso (Eric Krasno Band) to the band. With their angelic presence and vocal prowess paired with the trio’s unadulterated musical chemistry, this band has truly created something new that needs to be seen to believe.
