Dan first picked up the bass when he was fifteen and has been at it ever since."I like all kinds of music and have learned through playing and listening that they all have something to offer." says Dan O'Donnell. He has been in the Dallas music scene longer than Deep Ellum and played with several bands. Justin gave Dan a call in 1998 and they scheduled a time to practice. "The first time we played I liked Justins songs and his committment to play so we moved forward. I really liked his songwriting and we both had the same goals." Dan and Justin have had an assortment of drummers. "Joey has been 'new light' in the band,"Dan Says" it's nice to have a drummer that keeps a great drive and power in the mix. This is one of the keys to making this trio rock"
