Dan Corkill (D¢)

Deciding what I want to do when I grow up.
SOTD'er. Rock Voices'er. Grandfather'er.
Nearly always in Amherst, MA
AKA: D¢ (karaoke & open mic nights)



I listen to a lot of music, mostly rock and popular songs from the early '60s onward. I enjoy singing, too: in Rock Voices, on Open Mic/Jam Session/Live Band Karaoke nights, and at karaoke venues. I briefly “toured” with Barry Manilow (sang with other Rock Voices singers in his backup choir at Foxwoods in March 2015).

Song of the Day

Starting in May 2015, I began selecting and sharing a song each day on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Here is the list of all my Song of the Day (SOTD) selections to date.

Open Mic/Jam Session/Live Band Karaoke

Monday nights I play keyboard and sing at the Florence, MA VFW Open Mic/Jam Sessions hosted by Greg Reil. It's an informal, relaxed setting that differs every week depending on who stops by to play or sing. Here is a YouTube playist containing recordings from those sessions.


I began singing karaoke in the Fall of 2015 and and now sing karaoke regularly. Here are the songs that I have attempted to date.

The Tiers

The Tiers was a four-person rock cover band operating out of Omaha, Nebraska in the late 1960s. Yes, I was a member, so check them out...


I enjoy playing, restoring, and maintaining pinball machines. I'm always on the lookout for places to play pinball around the Amherst, Massachusetts area. Drop me an e-mail at pinball@dancorkill.com. By the way, did I mention that I enjoy playing pinball?

Heartland Farm & Horses

Others in my family are into horses.
