Doctor Gasp

This is So Damn Good

Dan Blakeslee is a musical storyteller and a skilled artist & designer. A gifted songwriter in his own right, Blakeslee takes on the moniker of Doctor Gasp each year as Halloween draws near. This year, Gasp is taking on all of New England! He planned this fall's tour as a lark - drawing a jack o'lantern on the map, looking for dates to coincide with each point. (When you are as special and spooky as Dr. Gasp, these are the sorts of things that come to your mind.) Well it's worked, big time. Armed with more than two albums worth of spooky, theatrical stories and a passion for playing the role, Blakeslee is bringing his Halloween roadshow to a town near you this year...

SO DAMN FUN - Ultimately this stuff is just really, really good and it works (scary good fun) for both adults and kids. Check out Dan's show and be sure to pick up some of his albums and artwork. All the artwork on his records, posters and website are all hand-drawn by him. He brings a book of this gorgeous work with him on the road and these one-of-a-kind music masterpieces make great gifts for the ghoul in
your life! (Sorry, I couldn't resist.)
