navarroFor over thirty years, Dan Navarro has written, sung, played and acted his way through a rich and varied career…

Dan started his career as a songwriter, often with Eric Lowen, for artists as diverse as Pat Benatar (the Grammy-nominated “We Belong” – spotlighted in 2015’s Pitch Perfect 2) ,The Bangles, Jackson Browne, Keb’ Mo’, Dave Edmunds, The Temptations,  Dionne Warwick, Austin outlaw legend Rusty Weir and many more…

In the ‘90s, Dan recorded and toured with Lowen in the acclaimed acoustic duo Lowen & Navarro until Eric’s retirement in 2009. Dan has since transitioned into a solo career, increasingly in demand on the national concert circuit…

When not on the road; however, Dan is busy wearing several other hats.  He is a voice actor in major motion pictures such as Happy Feet, The Lorax and Ice Age to name a few; numerous television series – currently on Family Guy, American Dad; and hundreds of national commercials – Toyota, Coca-cola, McDonalds – the list goes on and on.  This past year, Dan voiced the character CHAKAL, the ‘rampaging, metal-encased monster’ in the animated, fantasy-comedy The Book of Life. The Book of Life Website ]

On the side, he serves on the boards of SAG-AFTRA(Vice President), Folk Alliance, The Levitt Pavilions LA and the ALS Assoc. He also contributes countless hours in DC talking on issues of intellectual property, copyright and performer’s rights on behalf of NSAI, AFTRA, NARAS, BMI,SoungExchange and others.  

After 22 years and 12 albums with Lowen & Navarro, Dan released “Live at McCabes” and his first studio album of new material “Shed My Skin” is almost ready for release.

…and, if all that weren’t enough, he is the father of an 18-year-old son in college in NYC and a known abuser of acoustic guitars.

Tickets are $26 and ONLY available online at 49 West!
