5 things you didn’t know about Dan Patlansky

2014-09-23 12:35

Cape Town – It’s Dan Patlansky week here at Channel24.

Why? Well...the blues maestro is touring Cape Town this week...and we just love ourselves a bit of blues to get those summer party vibes started!

So, to make things interesting, we decided to ask Dan to share 5 secrets about himself. And for your viewing pleasure, we decided to add some explanatory GIFs.


1) I get edgy in large crowds of people, for example in shopping centres and airports.

2) One of my favourite things to do is 4x4ing, and finding obscure 4x4 routes to drive.

3) I became a father 6 weeks ago for the first time. And I haven't slept since.

4) On a good day, I'm the world’s lightest sleeper. Touring sometimes can prove tough.

5) I'm a light weight when it comes to drinking.
