Now that the daily lineup has been put up, there are a whole bunch of bands that were not listed on the original lineup that I am completely stoked to see. Yes, Rocklahoma has an incredible lineup of big, popular bands, but it is the plethora of amazing talent off center stage that makes Rocklahoma an epic experience.
For a taste of this amazing band, hit their YouTube channel and listen to “Travail,” “Anguish,” “Price I Have to Pay,” and “Better Days.” There is a story behind every song to go with the absolutely stellar guitar work.
Here is a live video shot at the Chevy Music Showcase in OKC.
Dan Adler was raised in Southern California to a mom and dad, one of whom appreciated Creedence and left wing anti-war politics. By the teenage years, Dan became obsessed with Black Sabbath, listening to the same seven albums repeatedly for 5 years. During this time, his favorite concert experience was seeing Metallica open for a bunch of bands that no longer exist and winning the 1st ever Santa Cruz Air Guitar contest. After several years in Africa listening and dancing to Chimurenga music, Dan returned to have the two best children in the world, one of whom spends a lot of time at concerts with him. What a lucky dad!
