Danny T and the Stealing Thunder Band
Native Rock, Blues and more!
Playing the blues and rocking the southwest.
Daniel Talache is an American Indian musician, singer, and
songwriter. Raised in Nambe Pueblo, New Mexico, Danny T has played the guitar since the age of 11. He plays Blues, Rock, Pop, Spanish, Country Western, and 50’s and 60’s Rock n’ Roll.
Always with a band at his back, he was the lead guitar for native actor and musician Gary Farmer and the Troublemakers, has shared the stage with Mato Nnaji of Indigenous and Otis Taylor. Danny has also played with native actor and musician Wes Studi and a New Mexico Music Award for his song “Rez Dog”.
His music covers a broad span of styles and iconic influences. Danny can riff anything, from Richie Valens, all the way to Buddy Guy, Albert, and B.B. King, with pit stops in chicken scratch, rancheros, and Latin style classical work.
Rooted in Stevie Ray Vaughn energy, his passion has been inspired by the works of Allman Brothers, Government Mule, and Jimmy Hendrix to name a few. The evolving influences of the blues style blends well with the northern New Mexican
music by popular culture, but by the amalgamation of the cultures that exist here similar to the regional identities of the Tex-Mex, Cowboy Swing, Ragtime, and Bayou Cajun music that emerged from specific places. When the spectrum of collective generational musical journey is observed, one can see how youthful musical talent displays the ability to capture those styles which strike chords and captivates them. Danny gets the evocations and embraces the sounds and playing, enfolding the prism into his own musical identity.
