This past weekend saw DAN PATLANSKY
walk away with the SAMA Award
for BEST ROCK ALBUM
for his latest studio offering, ‘Perfection Kills
’. This is DAN
’s first SAMA
nomination and win.
Currently in Germany, DAN was unable to attend the prestigious award ceremony in Sun City, but is delighted for the win:
“Absolutely honoured to receive this award. Being recognised in my home country is truly something special.” – Dan Patlansky.
Dan adds this award to his long list of accolades including ‘Perfection Kills’ being voted the #2 Best Blues Rock Album in 2018 by Blues Rock Review USA, and Dan being voted the 9th Best Blues Guitarist in the world by Total Guitar & Musicradar in December 2018.
Dan finished his full band electric live tour in May, performing sold out shows in Pretoria, Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town. This past weekend he also presented sold out guitar workshops at Schorndorfer Gitarrentage.
Dan returns to his South African fans in June to continue his brand new DUO ELECTRIC tour across the country, and he will be returning once again to the UK as special guest artist on WALTER TROUT’s UK Tour in October 2019.
