"Venue Owner's Thoughts"

"Double Saginaw Familiarity [is] an acoustic artist who first thrilled a rapt (SCENE) Metrospace audience with an unscheduled mini-set at last month's sold-out A Story Told CD release. Dan is an avid songwriter with a quietly captivating stage presence and a downright bewitching baritone who makes frequent appearances at local open mics, where a groundswell of demand for dedicated solo performances has been steadily growing."
-Peter Richards, curator of Scene Metrospace in East Lansing - Scene Metrospace

"the first time i hear one of dan's songs, i seriously get chills. pain and hope, sorrow and love. and his charm might be as compelling as his talent."

Double Saginaw Familiarity started in a bedroom in Norman, Oklahoma in the summer of 2005. Dan Pechacek had recently gone on hiatus with an acoustic project he and a friend had started, but still had songs flowing through him. He’d grown up musically on Death Cab, Dashboard Confessional, and other “emo” bands with a tendency to write mellow songs about relationships, and he stuck with what he knew. Jon Carbin was the first addition to the solo project. He and Dan met in high school orchestra, and Jon played cello on the third and fourth DSF albums. On the fourth album, “Honestly,” the first to be approached as an album (the first three were collections of songs burned onto CD-Rs to sell for a few bucks at shows), Ben See, a multi-instrumentalist from Dan’s former cross-town rival high school, joined DSF. Since then, Ben has become a permanent fixture of the live experience in Oklahoma. Dan is now a junior majoring in English at Michigan State University, where he’s become a LoopStation solo artist. In the summer of 2008, he brought this back with him to Oklahoma, along with about 30 songs he’d written over the past school year. He and Ben joined together with Roy Dickinson at Channel Something Studios to make “Summer Night, Winter Night,” the latest DSF album. It’s a new direction for the band, with the addition of drums, electric guitars, and lots of effects pedals, as well as an evolution in songwriting for Dan – one that band and fans alike are enjoying.
