This is my "Artist Page" on Radio Indy. These folks gave my cd, "Venice Sci-Fi" a nice write-up!
Hmmm....what to do with all those scrapbooks filled with a lifetime's worth of press clippings? How 'bout a pretty cool video?

…Ari Dane, a comedian who thinks fast on his feet was the show-stopper. He told jokes and sang rap songs and got a lot of laughs for his bit on forgetfulness.
For Dane’s finale, after asking a few members in the audience about themselves, amazed everyone with his ability to create on the spot lyrics about them in his songs while playing the electric guitar.
“Mr.Dane has performed in Las Vegas, Reno as well as on cruise ships, in comedy clubs and at major conventions,” Burnett said. “He’s amazing.”
Roy Coyne was in the audience with his wife, Sandra.
“I thought it was a great show,” he said. “I really enjoyed the comedian and his knack for remembering all the people’s names and putting them in a song. “
