Dana Murray Music

$10 | $12 DAY OF SHOW 

Dana Murray Music (Omaha, NE)

As a native of Omaha, Dana began gigging wherever and whenever
he could, including street corner performances.
In the mid-'90s, he moved to Boston to attend the Berklee
College of Music on scholarship and shortly thereafter, on the
advice of jazz legends Max Roach and Victor Lewis, moved to
the center of the jazz universe- New York City.

From the mid-'90s to the early ‘00s, Dana became as involved
as he could in the jazz scene. He had the pleasure of touring
the world with Wynton Marsalis and began gigging and
recording with the likes of Donald Byrd, Jimmy Witherspoon,
Roy Hargrove, Sherman Irby, Marc Cary and Russell Gunn to
name a few.

During his time in New York, he also found the time to play in
several Broadway shows, including the rock opera “Tommy”...
not limiting himself to jazz.

Murray toured with the Soul Trance band, Topaz and in support
of jam band stalwarts Widespread Panic, performed with
Atlantic Records’ WaxPoetic alongside Norah Jones and Steely
Dan singer Carolyn Leonhardt.

In 2000, he founded Reallive, a cutting-edge hip-hop group,
along with Malike Burke.

As a producer, Dana has worked on records with a variety of
local and commercial labels, including BlueNote. Most recently,
collaborating with Eric Revis on his latest album, “Sing Me
Some Cry." Some of his other recent collaborations have included
industry heavyweights Aloe Blacc, JD Allen, Caron Wheeler, Orrin Evans,
Oliver Lake, Nasheet Waits as well as a host of up-and-coming artists.

Dana also held teaching positions at University of Nebraska at
Omaha, Omaha Public School District and Bellevue Public
School District. As founder of Dojo Percussion and its parent
company DMgroove Drum Dojo, he aims to reach the masses
through the power of music and percussive art.
Today, his focus is on MAKING music and collaborating with
other artists to create unique sounds.
