ABOUT THE BAND
A tribute to an era, 1967-1976, LOCOMOTIVE BREATH is a classic rock band covering seven of the greatest iconic rock bands of that era: Jethro Tull, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, Cream, The Who and The Doors.

He has also played bass with The Jive Hounds, cofounded Dreambeach with Pipa Piñon, and is regularly gigging with The Joint Chiefs Band.
While with World Entertainment War, Bill Graham said of Daniel, "You've got that Animal JuJu thing when you play", then signed the band to a recording and performing contract with Bill Graham Productions and MCA Records. And today, the "Animal JuJu thing" is what brought Daniel to envisioning and creating Locomotive Breath.
