Dacota has opened up for big time acts such as Blues Traveler, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, Dustin Thomas, and Laith-Al Saadi from NBC's The Voice. He has also performed at major Music Festivals like Bonnaroo, Shang Ri La, Project Earth, Werkout and more.
"I had the pleasure of meeting & playing some music with Dacota at Shangri-La Music Festival and was thoroughly impressed. His songs are lyrically driven, songs about self empowerment, growth, and self activation. Underneath his poetic couplets is an phenomenal grip on his guitar, melodies and chords built in between confident riffs and challenging finger work. And all this shines no brighter than his voice. A textural gift of rasp and soul. A voice that cuts through you while putting you at ease. I was truly in awe while watching his artistry unfold, and am only surprised with the idea that more people have not heard his work. Because more people should. A true talent."
