“Holiday Blues” is a Chuck Berry-like Christmas song from the album, Photo Album. This rocker takes you coast-to-coast with excursions through Texas, East Nashville, Des Moines and Buffalo. The legendary Patti Rothberg provides the featured female vocals. The song grooves like the Stones with a rocked out Tom Waits/Leonard Cohen-type vocal with a dash of Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jerry Garcia mixed in.
Doctor Dan first performed at age 13 at the local community center and continued with thousands of stops at juke joints, dive-bars and small theaters from the East Coast to the West Coast with members of Fats Dominoe’s band—and it continues today, paying dues, ducking bar stools and flying beer bottles, and surviving the brutal road from Jackson Hole to Jacksonville. Good times performing with members of Steely Dan, Aretha Franklin’s band, Gregg Allman’s bands and finally gaining enough recognition to perform at Farm Aid with Willie Nelson and Neil Young. Dan says, “I think Johnny Cash wrote ‘I’ve been everywhere, man’ about me!”
