Daniel Fabricant Music
Performer Bio

Daniel Fabricant may be the most versatile bassist in San Francisco—and the most in-demand. Playing upright or electric, he can adapt to a wide range of musical settings, from intimate chamber groups to sprawling dance bands and Latin ensembles. He has performed at Carnegie Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center and internationally with the likes of Betty Buckley, Joan Rivers, Liza Minnelli, Ann Hampton Callaway, Petula Clark, Billy Porter, Michael Feinstein and Mary Wilson of the Supremes among many others. In his nearly two decades on the San Francisco scene he has played as a sideman with dozens of San Francisco groups including The Cosmo Alleycats, Rupa and the April Fishes, and Redwood Tango Ensemble and Lavay Smith and Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers.

A skillful arranger for jazz, theater and pop ensembles, Daniel is also an accomplished music instructor, teaching guitar and bass to students of all ages in private and group settings. With teaching experience ranging from preschool to graduate school, he is currently a resident teaching artist with SF Symphony's Adventures in Music outreach program.


Upcoming Performances
News: Summer-Fall '17 
Summer has been a full of a good mix of steady gigs (The Page every Wednesday 5-7pm, plus a handful of monthlies), private weddings and events, concerts and dances. I've done more recording than usual, including Redwood Tango, Rupa and The April Fishes, Larry Gallagher and Larry Rosenthal. The next big tour I'm on will be with Piaf! The Show for a few weeks in October. Directly after that I'll fly to LA to play with nonagenarian legend Barbara Dane. It looks like I'll be starting a new preschool teaching job and still hosting monthly house concerts as well. 

Here's a very small picture of my last gig with Piaf! The Show at Carnegie Hall.
