Early bands

In 1993 he and several friends from the Elgin area formed the punk-ska fusion band Slapstick, with Andriano playing bass and contributing backing vocals. He would remain a member through the release of two full-length albums (Lookit! and a self-titled compilation) until the group's breakup in 1996. After the breakup he and two other ex-members of Slapstick formed the band Tuesday, which released an EP, Early Summer, in 1997 and a full-length album, Freewheelin, later that year.

In late 1997 Andriano was asked by Matt Skiba to join the Alkaline Trio, replacing original bassist Rob Doran. His first release with the band was the 1998 EP For Your Lungs Only. The band has since released eight studio albums.

Side and solo projects

Andriano played bass on The Falcon's 2004 EP, God Don't Make No Trash or Up Your Ass with Broken Glass, at the request of guitarist and lead vocalist Brendan Kelly, and would return in 2006 to play bass and provide vocals for Unicornography. He also played bass guitar on Ben Weasel's 2007 album These Ones Are Bitter.

Andriano also performs as a solo act under the name "Dan Andriano in the Emergency Room". His first solo album, Hurricane Season, was released on August 9, 2011 through Asian Man Records. Later that year, Adriano toured Europe with Chuck Ragan, Dave Hause of The Loved Ones, and Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem as part of the 2011 Revival Tour. The following year, Andriano again performed on the North American leg of The Revival Tour alongside Ragan, Cory Branan, Laura Jane Grace of Against Me!, and Nathaniel Rateliff. Dan Andriano in the Emergency Room released his second album 'Party Adjacent' on July 17, 2015.


Andriano has played Fender Jazz and Precision Basses for most of his career. He also had a limited run of 20 signature Jazz Basses made by GPC.

For amplification, he has been known to use Marshall amps in the studio and Orange and Ampeg amps on stage.
