Lighter Side of on CD

DANA A. BYRD comes from an extensive musical backround. As a youngster he got his first taste of the performing arts as a singer with, the then world famous, Newark Boys Chorus School, performing with the likes of the famous tenor George Shirley, the famous composer Gian Carlo Mennotti, and also the former director of the Julliard School of Music, Peter Mennen. He then went on to the Newark School of the Performing Arts, where he landed positions in both the all City and all State Choruses and also the all Country Chorus. He was also nominated for the coveted Kiwanis Award. At an early age, it was apparent that Dana was headed for a career in the entertainment industry. He paid his dues by managing a Gentleman's club; which later turned into a neighborhood bar lounge called Mr. B's in Newark, New Jersey. He continued paying his dues by doing a host of other jobs in the NightClub industry such as: disc-jockey, bar- back, host, promotions, doorman, bouncer/security, for most of his life. He also performed in the smoke-filled lounges of NYC as most up and coming artists do. He was fortunate enough to lead a band at a popular tourist attraction nite-spot called the Groove, for almost 2 years, where he performed with celebrities and famous musicians such as: Bokeem Woodbine, Matthew McCaughney, Sally Richardson, Mos Def, Alex Mosely (formerly of Lisa Lisa and the Cult Jam), John Pahmer (former keyboardist for Terrence Trent Darby), Hubert Eaves Jr.(former bassist for Erika Badu), Mitch Mat- lock (former backround singer for Mary J. Blige and Alicia Keyes), and as a result, he has wound up here presenting this CD otherwise known as his voice. "Music should move you and take you places, I hope that this will" dana a. byrd.
