Story behind your band/artist name: I've been asked if it's a stage name, but alas it is my real name. About 10 yrs ago I made "The Dan Barry Army Group" on Facebook. It was composed of about 400 or so people with variations of the name Dan Barry. I'd like to think that had I chosen a stage name it would be more unique.
Band Members: Dan Barry - vocals/guitar.
What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : VIRGINIA
At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: I had the opportunity to play for Neil Young. During one of my early gigs in the area I recognized him at a venue. Somehow he was unnoticed. He gave me the coded look that said "Yes, I'm famous. YOU WILL SAY NOTHING!"...and I did not. His feelings about my performance is unknown ATM.
I also played a gig where roughly 75% of the audience was hearing impaired. They seemed to enjoy themselves so I think I literally gave them "good vibes".
I also had a 90s sitcom loosely based on my family. Guess which one!!
