Dana Frank Garrett Now Playing at The Beer Hunter

dana frank garrettKnown by many as "Kid Tater", Dana Frank Garrett has covered the San Diego music scene like sour cream and chives on a steaming hot russett.

Having played in numerous venues and clubs around Southern California, covering everything from rock to jazz to hip hop, there's nothing that he and his saxophone can't cover.

"I'm here to get the night life going" the Tater says of his recent gig at The Beer Hunter. "Previously there was a more soft sound here. I'm here to help this place transition from a sports bar to a sports bar night club."

And Garrett definitely delivers. Covering everything from James Brown to Van Morrison to the Black Eyed Peas, he rips off solos on saxophone inspired by boyhood idols like John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, Stan Getz, Paul Desmond and Lenny Picket. His tall, thin build looms large with his shiny brass sax, as he walks up and down the Beer Hunter bar ripping off notes from today's latest chart toppers.

His musical roots goes back to his days in Irwindale, when he picked up a saxophone for the first time at age 10. But it was up in Fairbanks, Alaska, in high school, that he refined his art enough to win numerous awards and accolades, including the Louis Armstrong Jazz Award and the John Phillip Sousa Band Award.

Garrett will be playing at The Beer Hunter from 9:00pm to 12:30am Friday & Saturday evenings.
