Danny the Lip
Born in Georgia, USA, Danny Lippitt later escaped to New Orleans where he immersed himself in the swampy gumbo of music and emerged Danny “the Lip”. He played his harmonica on famous Bourbon Street, sat in with local bands, and cut his teeth with some of New Orleans’ best.

In 2002, he packed his bags and moved out to Barcelona, Spain to try his hand in the European music scene. He started a blues band called Mojo Hand, got together some jazz cats for a weekly jam called The Session, then later went on to form the house bands for various Barcelona late night venues including El Paraigua, Doble, Nuba, and a 6-year stint at one of Europe’s best cocktail bars, Mutis. He also performs regularly in duos in Sol y Sombra, Omm Hotel, Hotel Alma, among others.

Working with a wide variety of styles and musicians (other original groups include The Gangsters of Love, Dirty Santos, Brasstards, Rockabilly Cats and Coyote and the Lip), Danny “the Lip” has established himself in the heart of the Barcelona music scene as a highly respected singer and harmonica player.

He spent 5 years as music director of El Paraigua, he brought the venue to prominence among local bands and made relationships with hundreds of Barcelona musicians. As an event/wedding band organizer, Danny has worked with the Hotel Florida, the Parador de Cardona, La Baronia, Castell d’Emporda, Pulitzer, Almiral de la Font, Mas Coll, El Convent de Blanes, among many others, and is the preferred music organiser for Catering Sensacions, one of the biggest caterers in Barcelona.
