on a little-known planet circling a star slightly to the left
of our star Sol, CactusPears guitarist/singer Dan Dreifort now
resides in the sunny canyons of San Diego, CA.. Events leading up
to this serendipitous domicilification are hazy.
His first band, Your
Mother and Her Howling Commandos formed in 1986 back when
Dan was in 7th grade and groupies with braces were par for the
course. A few of his other bands might be listed on our networking
Dan's first stint with
the Pears (in 1995 on bass) was initiated when the rock gods that
be saw fit to send then Pears cellist Wayne Hazelwood to Africa
and ended similarly when then Pear drummer Scott Travis left to
rejoin his old band Judas Priest.

Dan Dreifort's second tour of
duty, playing lead guit with the CP ended on 01-01-00 when he
holed away in a Y2K bunker with plans to open a New World Order
bead/candle store in the "aftermath." Alas, something
went awry. In 2001 he rejoined the Pears.
Dan Dreifort's other interests
include nude skydiving, visiting Hawaii, boobs, indelible beancurd, eating rainbows,
and occasionally updating his blog - dandreifort.com.
