Behind the Music
Singer/ Songwriter Dan Hildebrand is a man of many interests. A performing musician with more than a few stories to tell, he has been a treasure hunter, shipwreck diver, rustic mountain man, fine wine aficionado, movie maker, recording artist and a well traveled troubadour in the pubs and music scene across the USA and beyond. Dan was raised on the shores of Lake Michigan in the small shipbuilding town of Manitowoc, Wisconsin. Now days he hangs his hat in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.
Dan's songwriting style runs the gambit with thought provoking lyrics of tales steeped in history, stories of the road and a bit of factual-fiction with a sprinkling of humor.
Dan has also been known to raise a glass in Toast with a traditional Irish Pub tune from his days in the popular duo "Hardbean & McHonzik"

Make a difference
A light hearted folk ballad which takes us back to the 1960's and then back again to our present time. Full of historical and hysterical content.
