Danny Bedrosian

Daniel Peter Bedrosian was born in Lawrence, Massachusetts, the third child of concert
level classical pianists Peter & Jeanne Bedrosian. His parents were both music majors,
graduating at the top of their class in the music department at the University of
Massachusetts, Lowell. Moving into Education, they started their own Piano School, and,
like any loving musical tradition, enrolled their three children into the program, eldest Holly
at 4 years of age, Elise at 3 years, and the youngest Danny at 4 years. All three of the
children were classically trained by their parents, and were also involved in Church Choir,
their father being the Choir Director at the local church.

Danny's first of many Classical Concert Recitals took place at the age of five, the very same
year winning the bronze medal in his first Musical Theory and Performance Competition,
beating many fellow pianists double his age. Three years, and half a dozen concert recitals
later, at the age of only 8, Bedrosian would win the gold medal at the same competition
against competitors raging from the ages of 5-19 years old. In the years ahead until he was
18, Bedrosian would play in dozens more Classical Concert Recitals amongst his peers
playing pieces by composers such as Khatchaturian, Bartok, Beethoven, Sanucci, Bach,
Tcherepnin, Grieg, Vandall, and many more. Danny's interests in jazz and R&B began at the
age of 10 amidst his classical studies as well, as he played keyboards and sang in various
local Latin, Metal, and Hip Hop Groups.

The first group he fronted won a local battle of the bands, and sparked Bedrosian to
consider a deeper move into the industry. Since the age of 11, Bedrosian had been moved
more by the P-Funk than any other group, and aspired himself to start what would
eventually be the 18-piece New England based, super-funk group Sweet Motha' Child. From
1998-2003 Bedrosian was the Band Director, Keyboardist, Lead Vocalist, Arranger, Manager,
Booking Agent, Frontman, Lyricist, and chief songwriter of the successful group. Under his
reigns, Sweet Motha Child would release six albums, and Bedrosian's production company
handled album production and release for various projects in the New England region. He
also played in other groups, worked two jobs, and was attending The University of NH,
becoming, of all things, a Historian of Middle Eastern Studies.

Between the ages of 16 and 20, Bedrosian met and befriended his longtime musical
favorites in George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic. Upon these meetings, Bedrosian
would go to FL for a week to do session work for Clinton. He would be asked to do the same
for Bo Diddley months later, but Bedrosian, driven by the need to finish what he started
both financially and educationally decided to graduate college first. Upon receiving his
degree at the age of 22, and now a certified Historian of Middle Eastern Studies, Bedrosian
left the leadership of SMC with his sister Elise, and moved to Tallahassee, FL in an attempt
to land a full-time job with the P. He and keyboardist Jerome Rodgers worked diligently for
months with bands and in the studio, and Rodgers landed Bedrosian a job as keyboard tech
for George's keyboardists.

Within months, Bedrosian was brought into the fold as full time musician in the band, and
has played all over North America, The Caribbean, Europe, Australia and New Zealand with P-
funk. He is now featured on a handful of Live Pfunk releases, Pfunk albums and spinoff
albums. His credits include Executive Producer for Jerome Rodger's debut album, and
appearances on the BET 25th Anniversary Spectacular, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and
Last Call with Carson Daly. Bedrosian also has played keyboards for Pfunk offshoot bands
such as The 420 Funk Mob, Divadelic & COP, Drugs, Cacophonic FM, GCIII Varsity Squad,
and The Church of High Voltage.

He released his debut solo album in September of 2005, and has received great reviews
from the world over. Aside from the recent release, Bedrosian is currently CEO, Producer &
Engineer of his Production and Publishing Company BOZFONK, is working with other artists
' projects, both in and outside of Pfunk, is the current keyboard player for Tallahassee funk
act the Soular System, and is writing an historical ethnology of Ancient Tribal Armenia. At 25,
Bedrosian continues to win new fans as well as respect in the world of music.

Danny continued to score with multiple releases on his BOZFONK MOOSICK production and
publishing label, in conjunction with WEFUNK South, which Bedrosian also is head of
operations. Albums by Som’n Fierce, MoonChild, Secret Army, The Soular System, Asphalt
Panda, Teresa Jimenez, Clonin the Wheel and Sweet Motha’ Child have come out on
through Bedrosian’s work with these two aforementioned companies between 2005 and
2009.

Bedrosian is key in the administrative aspects of the company including, but not limited to:
Writing, Producing, Performing, Playing, Singing, Programming, Engineering, Managing,
Promotions, Advertising, Marketing, Street Team ringleader/recruiter, Web team, Art Dept,
Photography Dept, Publishing, Radio blitz team, Music education, arranging, Press, and
much more.

Aside from administrative duties, Bedrosian continues to stay busy, currently playing in 10
bands live, and working on 10-15 different studio projects fiscally. In October of 2008 Danny
played keys for the special George Clinton and the Gangsters of Love Halloween
performance featuring RZA on the Late Show with David Letterman. Danny also performed
with George Clinton, P-Funk, and Sly Stone at one of the inaugural balls in Washington DC
for President Barack Obama.

In 2009 Danny Bedrosian's Secret Army opened for George Clinton and Parliament-
Funkadelic, with Danny handling double duty in cities from Boston to Orlando. Danny also
expanded BOZFONK MOOSICK and WEFUNK SOUTH in the beggining of 09, by working with
more new and established artists and bands than ever before.

Danny toured South America with George Clinton and P-Funk in 2009 as well, making his way
onto CNN South America and every South American newspaper due to the hype of the band
coming down there. He also established important ties with associates in Buenos Aires.

Danny's music world appears to just keep growing and growing, and only keeps getting
better.
