The band, Dan Daniels and Your No Good Buddies, is a group of Baby Boomers with their roots in the past and branches reaching for the future. Raised on Rock and Roll, tempered through the social struggles of the 60's and 70's, and keeping abreast of the currents of change in politics, the environment, and the world in general, they play a rocking, socially relevant and tastefully humorous brand of good time music, which can be enjoyed by all ages. With their first album of Dan Daniels originals, 2004's Guts and Gravel, the guys showed a versatility of sounds tied to a group of songs with snappy hooks, thoughtful lyrics, and outstanding musicianship. They were having fun and it showed on songs such as the environmentally aware "What Would Jesus Drive" and the satirical "Do It While We Can". This album garnered them many plays on independent radio stations all around the world as far away as Australia and New Zealand, where the song "(I've Been Eating) Onions" was quite popular. With the 2007 release of Geezer Rock, the band was ready to try the American market with a full radio campaign spearheaded by Bill Wence Promotions of Nashville,TN . Still showing the sense of humor they are known for with songs such as "Geezer Rock", this album looks more closely at the human condition of love lost and found, of the sorrows that tragedy can bring and the hope that new love engenders in the human heart. Featuring the songwriting acumen of Dan Daniels and his acoustic rhythm guitar, the fine guitar work of Hal Benoit, Guy Wallis and Dan Margolis, the bass playing and backup vocals of Shawn Mansfield, the keyboard work and engineering prowess of Guy Wallis, drums by Rich Slobody, mandolin by Guy Wallis and Kurt Hansen, and some fine fiddle work by Doug Tanner, the album starts off strong with "Away From You, Back to You" and comes to a rocking ending with "The Rendezvous". Now in 2010 they have released a third CD entitled Nobody's Fool, exploring a more acoustic, Bluegrass, old-time jug-band style without drums, a reflection of the band's current lineup of Dan Daniels on acoustic rhythm guitar, Kurt Hansen on mandolin, Don Lacharite on bass, and Dan Margolis on lead guitar. With engineering by Jayce DeSantis and production by Dan Daniels and Jayce, this album is the most radio ready, professionally done of the three. It features the fantastic fiddle playing of Rob Griffin, the pedal steel and dobro of Ron Shepherd, and some great guitar work by Jayce DeSantis as well. Having paid their dues in local clubs and bars, where original music is not the norm, the band has been playing a lot more concerts and events and has been developing a following that more and more wants to hear Your No Good Buddies tunes. So why don't you come on down and spend some time with Dan Daniels and Your No Good Buddies. 'It's music that crosses boundaries wonderfully with each cut working to add a cohesive Americana sound", Eric Sutter, In the Spotlight, Inc. Geezer Rock is a winner of the 2007 LiveWire Award given by music critic Donnie Moorhouse as one of the best local CD's of 2007.
