(Dan Patlansky)

Below please find a media release on the Dan Patlansky & Friends show that will take place at The Barnyard Theatre on December 22.

When you hear the name Dan Patlansky, it immediately conjures up images of the genius guitarist, singer/songwriter and globally respected purveyor of the Blues that he is. So, Durban is in for a treat when Dan puts together a special show featuring musical friends in what will be his last for 2014, to be performed at The Barnyard Theatre at Gateway on December 22.

This is a fitting way to end a busy and successful year, with highlights including - Dan’s seventh 10-track album, Dear Silent Thieves, launching in May with a national tour (with the Durban launch at the same venue) and this same album having just been voted Number 1 Blues Rock Album in the World by Blues Rock Review/USA; performing as opening act for Bruce Springsteen’s tour to South Africa; and having recently got back from a European tour which included Fjord Blues Festival in Norway and headlining the Horsens Festival in Denmark. 

Now, Dan will finish this remarkable year at this popular mall venue, with musical friends making guest appearances. Joining him on stage will be Brad Klynsmith (Gangs of Ballet), Ard Matthews (Just Jinjer), old friend Guy Buttery and others.

Catch Dan Patlansky at The Barnyard at Gateway on December 22 at 20h00 and tickets are R150 pp. For bookings and enquiries phone The Barnyard Theatre on 031 566 3045, e-mail or visit and for more information.
