Daniel Ari is a poet and performer, dancer and comedian. His poetry seeks connection with readers. His style is inconsistent, one poem rhymed and metered, the next prosaic and narrative, and the next choppy with cyberspeak. But the one consistency is the attempt to reach readers and hearers. So Daniel sings his lyrics over his accordion, with the bass and drums of his band, Bass Line Dada; juxtaposes poems with wife Lauren Ari's illustrations, and collaborates with many San Francisco Bay Area writers to create poetic opportunities. Lately, he has released a record of the serio-comic punk-rock political rant, "Grammarians R Pissed!"
