Daniel Fabricant Music
Performer Bio

Daniel Fabricant may be the most versatile bassist in San Francisco—and the most in-demand. Playing upright or electric, he can adapt to a wide range of musical settings, from intimate chamber groups to sprawling dance bands and Latin ensembles. He has performed at Carnegie Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center and internationally with the likes of Betty Buckley, Joan Rivers, Liza Minnelli, Ann Hampton Callaway, Petula Clark, Billy Porter, Michael Feinstein and Mary Wilson of the Supremes among many others. In his nearly two decades on the San Francisco scene he has played as a sideman with dozens of San Francisco groups including The Cosmo Alleycats, Rupa and the April Fishes, and Redwood Tango Ensemble. He is a founding member of the award-winning Nice Guy Trio, which was recently named best jazz band in San Francisco.

A skillful arranger for jazz, theater and pop ensembles, Daniel is also an accomplished music instructor, teaching guitar and bass to students of all ages in private and group settings. With teaching experience ranging from preschool to graduate school, he is currently a resident teaching artist with SF Symphony's Adventures in Music outreach program.


Upcoming Performances
News: Spring '17 
Despite my profound disappointment with the current political situation, I'm enjoying other aspects of 2017, thus far. My teaching job for San Francisco Symphony's Adventures in Music program is off to a good start. We have 123 assemblies for first and second graders to perform before May! Highlights of this Spring include SF Jazz with Destani Wolf on March 2, a SF farewell to longtime collaborator Veronica Klaus, a run with Michael Feinstein at Feinstein's in the Hotel Nikko, and of course, monthly Red Door House Concerts.
