The Story of Dan Desdunes

Dan Desdunes was The Man. For more than 20 years, he was the leader of Omaha’s powerhouse music scene. He also launched several musicians’ careers, volunteered around the community, and was well-thought of throughout his life. But even before he got to Omaha, Desdunes made waves ripple in Louisiana. This is the biography of North Omaha’s Dan Desdunes.

    Please note that Daniel Desdunes’ father’s first name was not Randolph. It was Rodolphe.
    Lynell Desdunes, Sr.

  2. OK. What specifically are you referring to Lynell? (I don’t see a typo in the show notes.)
