In 1994, Daniel Glass (RCR.com) joined the L.A. swing phenomenon Royal Crown Revue, the group that single handedly inspired today’s “Retro-Swing”” resurgence by combining 1940s sound and style with modern raw power.
Touring highlights with RCR include a headlining spot on the Van’s Warped Tours ’97 and ’99 (with stops in Europe, Australia and Japan), a spot on the 1998 Playboy Jazz Festival, and national tours with The B-52’s, The Pretenders, and KISS. The band performed with Bette Midler at the 1998 Billboard Music Awards, and was featured in the nation’s top jazz festivals (including Concord, Saratoga, Newport and JVC Lincoln Center). In September of 1999, RCR headlined two sold out performances with the 110 piece Hollywood Bowl Orchestra.
In addition to being an accomplished musician, Daniel has also penned 3 books on the history of musical eras of drums.
