"Brother from another mother!"

It was a wednesday night and I was just about to play my final song of the night, when a large man entered the bar and started a small commotion. i continued to play a James Taylor song as my finale and then proceeded to say goodnight. Over from the corner came a booming voice..."Can I get another James Taylor song?" Everyone who had been mildly interested in my last song suddenly erupted in shouts for "one more"! I obliged by playing two more lesser known tunes to the best reception I had had all night. After I had finished I walked over to thank the mysterious guest who had prompted my late night encore only to find it was former 76er Charles Barkley. After introducing my self he told me he is a big JT fan and then started refering to me as his "brother from another mother".....Although this is more of an anecdote than a review, its one of the best that I've gotten over the years. - Charles Barkley

After returning from the Pacific Northwest in 2003, Dan Kauffman settled in Philadelphia to continue his musical journey that started over 15 years ago. Starting out as a soloist playing cover songs in the local bars and restaurants, Dan has joined forces with the Educated Mess to develop an original sound that would appeal to the masses yet challenge the notion of popular music. Upon hearing a rendition of James Taylor's "Country Road", former Philadelphia 76er Charles Barkley remarked that Dan is his "brother from another mother" No joke...
