Dan Faehnle

There is little doubt that jazz guitar has entered a new and exciting realm when Dan Benedetto Player Dan Faehnle with Bravo Deluxe BP page 5-30-14Faehnle (Fan-lee) takes the stage. With the technical prowess of a jazz giant, Ohio native Faehnle has made an indelible mark upon the music world, receiving high praise from audiences and critics alike.

From an up-tempo bebop anthem to a languid, emotional reading of a ballad, Faehnle’s nimble fingers caress his guitar. As an integral part of the Diana Krall quartet for three years, Dan garnered accolades from such publications as the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times. Faehnle has also worked with such noted musicians as Joey DeFrancesco, Eddie Harris, Clark Terry, Zoot Sims, and Jeff Hamilton. Other significant colleagues have been Mel Brown, Ron Steen, Nancy King, Dave Friesen and Rebecca Kilgore. Currently, he’s the guitarist for the popular ‘Pink Martini’ orchestra.

Influenced by bebop pioneer saxophonist Charlie Parker and such diverse guitarists as George Benson and Wes Montgomery, Faehnle displays the versatility of a/ well studied artist, “but within that tradition makes a compelling, up to the minute statement.” –SEATTLE TIMES

Dan performs on a Bravo Deluxe model (with an A-6 pickup) and a Benny model in Natural.
