Danny Dean & The Homewreckers
Forget about the Swing revival of the nineties. Forget about the Rockabilly revival of the eighties. Danny Dean and the Homewreckers prove that vintage rock and roll isn't just a fad, but a lifestyle.
The act that Swing Time magazine calls "rebellious with a touch of class" has been pulling audiences onto dance floors all over the country. With over twenty years of guitar playing and singing experience in the fields of surf, punk, new wave and progressive rock, California native Danny Dean learned the hard way how to please a crowd. Now, his modern spin on the styles of early rock and roll keep the spirit of Bill Haley and the Comets and other classic suit and tie combos alive for this generation and the next.
Danny and his band of road tested veterans (Including hard twanging upright bass player Gavin Jones, who's been with him since the Homewreckers' started in 1997) give the customers their money's worth, whether in local clubs or in larger international venues. They hold their own with established acts when it comes to audience response, as they've demonstrated on tour with the likes of The Specials and the English Beat.
Their debut CD "Move It", released in 1999, was recorded with renown studio pros Jay Baumgardner, Bob Saling and Steve Misdorf. "Move It" snared great reviews from Americana and Rockabilly magazines. The CD features Danny's revamping of Cliff richard's Classic hit "Move It" (Complete with new lyrics by the original writer, Ian Samwell) and his own signature tune, Thunderbirds Are Go" - a brilliant tribute to the legend of the American road. All tracks feature Danny's smooth old-fashioned baritone, a voice striking enough to give even jaded old record collectors pause.
"The new Homewreckers CD "Growl" is now available, on Delirium Records.
"Growl" is a retrospect featuring the original 4 songs the band released on their own on
cassette only back in 1997 plus several new and compilation tracks.
