Dan Brekke found his passion for music at a young age being raised by his mom, Kathie Brekke, who is a choir teacher and his dad, Shawn Brekke, who was a band director for many years. He grew up surrounded by music and was always in attendance at his parents shows as they have a band of their own. He started playing instruments at a young age and grew up performing on the stage at Jasper’s Theater in Park Rapids, MN, his family-owned theater. There is where he found his love for the guitar, the fiddle, singing and just sharing his gift of music and his ability to make people laugh with everyone who walked through the doors.
He joined the Johnny Holm band at the age of 19 and enjoyed travelling all across the upper Midwest performing at various bars, fairs, and events. When he turned 21, he made the big move to Nashville. He spent over three years in the music scene in Nashville performing endless hours on Broadway and creating music of his own in his free time. He truly has a gift for song writing.
He released his first album in 2016 titled “Where Do You Wanna Go”. He is currently in the process of creating his second album with singles due to come out in the fall of 2022.
Dan is excited to start his own musical journey here in the upper Midwest. Playing a variety of songs from Country, Blues, rock, to some original music, you will be sure to have a great time attending a show.
