Dan Reed (frontman for Dan Reed Network) got to see the world opening for such bands as RUN DMC, UB40, David Bowie and Bon Jovi, eventually becoming the supporting act for the Rolling Stones’ 1991 European tour. It was at this time Reed journeyed to India with Bob Guccione Jr., editor of Spin Magazine, to interview the Dalai Lama for the magazine. It was during this trip that Reed began to hunger for more than the music scene had to offer. This trip was the catalyst to a long journey that eventually took Reed back to where he belonged … writing and performing new music about new experiences. Reed currently lives in Prague and will be doing limited shows in the U.S. This solo acoustic performance will be at the River City Saloon in Hood River on Saturday, May 20. Opening the show will be Tracy Klas, long time friend of Reed, award winning songwriter and dynamic soul filled vocalist, she is a favorite among Columbia Gorge locals where she now calls home. River City Saloon, 207 Cascade Ave., Hood River; 541-387-2583.
