We caught up with Dan to get his comments about the show. "This is a great way for us to kick off our concert series in 2017. There are still many in need well after the Christmas season. We are honored to support those who have sacrificed so much for this great nation." Dan, a fellow veteran of the Air Force himself continued. "We have seen our military, and the military community (especially in the last 8 years) relegated to 2nd class citizens. We are proud to do our part to help as we can and turn this around. For sure that means this show the will lift everyones spirits and rock their socks off!"

Dragontown Dan goes to D.C:

The nations capitol will never be the same as Dan heads to the presidential inauguration. "I for one am proud NOT to be part of the whining, left leaning, stereotypical, screw ball entertainment elite. It is a great privilidge to be granted tickets to this historic event, the only way I wouldn't go is if I had a gig booked that day!" Dan openly supported Donald J. Trump for President 2016 with his film production company based out of Colorado Springs. He was granted tickets from the Trump Inauguration Committee for his efforts towards the election. He continued. "At some point common sense has to kick-in if you live in the real world. Real families are struggling. Real companies are fighting to keep their doors open. Real people are still in need...more than ever. Real con-artists did noting the last two election cycles on either side of the aisle of fix it. Economic prosperity is the rung up the ladder for everyone, and a hand up to those truly in need is the American way, not shaming middle America with mindless dribble. While mentally frail individuals cower in their safe spaces, I prefer to perform with no safety net, live on stage, giving the audience the best (damn) Alice Cooper impersonation (and smoking hot band) on the planet doing it...PERIOD."
