Dan Reed Network are a modestly successful funk-rock band from Portland, Oregon.
Consisting of singer and guitarist Dan Reed, guitarist Brion James, bassist Melvin Brannon II, drummer Dan Pred and keyboardist Rick DiGuiarllonado, the Dan Reed Network started off in 1984, and released three studio albums (Dan Reed Network, Slam and Heat) before their unofficial breakup in 1993. According to Songfacts, they drew comparisons to Lenny Kravitz and Living Colour, got great reviews, and opened for The Rolling Stones and Bon Jovi. They sold nearly 2 million albums before calling it quits.

The band were renowned to their fans as excellent live performers, and they capitalised on this by releasing a two-disc live album (Live At Last! Halfway Around The World) in 1997.

    Only time I saw Dan reed was when he jammed with Bon Jovi on "We're An American Band" encore track at a 1989 gig in Glasgow - always bought the cds but missed out on seeing the band as I relocated to OZ and virtually no one toured there during 1990 - 1997 unless they were Maiden, Tull, Metallica or the odd blues band. Good to see the band are touring again. Criminally underrated.

    Seeing The Heat and Blame It On The Moon with so little plays is so weird...2 of my favorite songs ever.

    I bought Slam back in the day and have always enjoyed their stuff. Another criminally underplayed band

    I love DRN, although I'm sad I never got a chance to see them. Is the profile description for them OK?

    Yup, DRN fan right here. This band is almost unheard of which is sad. They had so much talent.
