Dan Patlansky

Musician - Johannesburg
Dan Patlansky


As a Blues-musician at the age of 30 is almost unheard of to achieve legend-status. For an artist who shares the muse that touched Hendrix, Zeppelin and Stevie Ray Vaughan enter Dan Patlansky. What he can do with a six-string Fender Stratocaster at the age of 30, is most critically acclaimed guitarists will never quite achieve in a lifetime.

When one thinks of Blues-legends, especially the word “legend” is loaded with meaning. Conjuring up images of seasoned older players that have been touched with a rare gift, and whose talent has been salted through the onslaught of years in the music business.

A charm and musical genius is what Dan Patlansky is with a conglomerate of charisma, and all of this comes wrapped up in an unassuming, startlingly attractive package that bespeaks his Judeo-Spanish heritage. Yet, he doesn’t seem to realise the extent of his extremely tactile appeal – both on stage and in person. Humility suits him well and is as much an extension of his being as his Fender. There are no airs and graces here – just sincerity and an incredible musical talent.

In only a little over a decade on the music scene, Dan Patlansky has become one of the busiest and most respected blues artists to ever come out of South Africa. His music can best be described as vacillating between slick, soulful blues and the renegade psychedelic angst and raw emotion of Hendrix or Zeppelin – fire encased in ice...if you will.
