Serving up “catchy, quirky pop with a funky soul,” CAPTAIN DANGER has a unique but “immediately likable” catalog of classics.
CMJ says CAPTAIN DANGER “pulls off the perfect pop formula so well it doesn’t feel formulaic at all.”
At ease in highly flammable 70’s polyester, songwriter/singer/guitarist AARON STEINBERG typically performs as a powerhouse trio with the fab talents of drummer ROGER "JOOSE" BENFORD and bassist ANDRÉ BERRY.
Influences include greats such as Jimi Hendrix, The Police, Prince, The Meters, King Crimson and Motown, along with artists like Nellie McKay, Shuggie Otis, Soul Coughing, Ben Harper and Tom Lehrer.
Armed with great melodies and rhythms, as well as a love of humor and irony, CAPTAIN DANGER sticks up for the underdog (wherever she or he might be).
If DON QUIXOTE was a modern-day city dweller, he’d have CAPTAIN DANGER on his playlist.
Live highlights include South by Southwest, CMJ and Arlene's Grocery's "Best Of NY" CD. Look for CAPTAIN DANGER performing live on Showtime's series "The Green Room with Paul Provenza.” TV, film and ad licensing includes Billabong, Bravo, Disney, CBS, NBC, MTV, ESPN, NHL, AMC, WE and more. Composing theme songs for specific productions (Bill Nye The Science Guy, Howard Stern, Fitz & Slade) is also a favorite activity for CAPTAIN DANGER (check out Captain Danger’s soundtracks website, chemicalmusic.com). Additionally, look out for guitar work on the film soundtracks such as "Limitless" (film and also the Emmy-Nominated CBS series) and "Dredd," for composer Paul Leonard-Morgan.
Currently, CAPTAIN DANGER is based in LA and New York - performing, recording, producing and happily making trouble for those who need it the most. Production / collaborating includes the hilarious wunderkind Flula Borg (Pitch Perfect 2, Conan O’Brien), the amazing Olivia Olson (Adventure Time, Phineas & Ferb, Love Actually) and fiery singer/songwriter L.P.(Warner Bros).
