Meet the musician's on the EasyBones - The Catman Chronicles album...   

Dan sez... "Good friends and great musicians. I couldn't have done it without them!"

Producer, B3 Organ, Keyboards, Harmony Vocals. Ron was my co-conspirator on this album. He worked tirelessly to help me make this happen.
                                                                        I literally could not have put this album together without his great keyboard work and vocals. Thank you, Ron!

    GABE DORRELL: Tenor and Soprano Saxophone. Gabe is the best sax man around. He gave my songs soul! Listen to his leads on "Seeker"!

    ZAC GROOM: Guitar, Harmony Vocals. A great singer and guitarist, Zac added his special musical touch to all the songs he worked on.
                                                                           Great harmony vocals on "Seeker"!

    KEITH TAYLOR: Lead Guitar, Slide Guitar. (Keith is well known for his work with Dash Riprock & The Dragons, Vince Vance & The Valiants and The Ones)
                                                                            Check out his great slide guitar on "Just A Lie".

    PAUL HARRINGTON: "Simply the best!"...  Grammy Award Winner Paul Harrington is know world-wide for his great harmonica work.
                                                                            I was excited to have him play on the album.
                                                                            I originally asked for his help on "Way Down in the Hole" but he wound up adding his unique sound to several more songs.

    GEORGE BOND: Excellent guitarist out of UNT.  George really charged up any song he played on!  I especially loved his leads on " Cat Dancin' ".

    TYRONE STARKS: Tyrone is a great drummer playing all styles and a pleasure to work with. Check him out on "Mississippi Straight Up".

    AMADO RODRIGUEZ: I invited Amado into the studio for his great Latin percussion and drums on "Just A Lie".
                                                                              It went very well so I asked him to also play on "Seeker".

    JOHN J.P. PAINTER: In addition to being a great engineer, JP plays a mean bass so we put him to work on several cuts.
                                                                                                                    I highly recommend The Kitchen Studio on Garland Road in Dallas.

    LOUIS CARPENTER: Louis plays baritone sax with several groups out of SMU so we asked him in to flesh out the horn section on a couple of songs. He did a great job!

    DAN BOTKIN: Lead and Harmony Vocals, Harmonica, Keyboards, Bass, Drums and Percussion.

Special thanks to every one of these great musicians who made this album possible!
