Dana Abbott is a triple threat. She not only sings and plays guitar, she composes most of her R&B/Roots Rock material. Dana started performing in the choir at her church at age 4. An episode of Star Search proved to be her inspiration to take the next step in her career path. “I proclaimed I wanted to be a singer-star,” she said.
She moved to Chicago from Vermont at 18 to delve into blues music and urban living. In 2005, Dana moved to New Orleans and has been here ever since. She made an appearance on "Treme" and was a contestant on season 3 of "The Voice". A regular on Frenchmen St and Irvin Mayfield's Playhouse, we look forward to welcoming Dana Abbott to The Mint.
