"If you want a lecture packed with practical advice, superb techniques and great commercial tricks, you could do no better than seeing Dan Fleshman. I have seen him lecture many times over the last 35 years and I always learn something new and exciting that I can add to my arsenal. His newest lecture may actually be his best, adding that much more intensive, real-world performing experience and the material he teaches is based on all of that. Don't miss Dan Fleshman when he comes to your area." – Marc DeSouza
