Various Snippets & Reviews - Danny Dean | Rockabilly | NeoRockabilly

It’s rebellious with a touch of class. Swing Time Magazine

Parts of this remind me of Brian Setzer, others remind me of Bobby Darin. The only other current bands that come to mind are The Orbits, and Big Sandy and his Fly Right Boys – but I’d say Danny Dean’s got a better singing voice by far. Henry R. Kujawa – The Forbidden Zone

Rockin’ guitars, slappin’ bass, tight drums and a vintage vocal style that Dean delivers smoothly. Jaymes Mayhem – Scratch Magazine

Good songwriters and great musicians the audiences always loved them. Danny B. Harvey

Good bands are plentiful, but great ones are rare. So, when you find something special you tend to pay particularly close attention. The finest musicianship in the world is as nothing without decent material. And on that point, also, the Homewreckers deserve acclaim. D.C. Larson – Rockabilly Magazine

Danny has a pleasant voice; his musicians really know there craft and the sound quality could not be better. Much more then just a mere late 50’s and early 60’s rock’n’roll cover band. Outstanding. Gaby Maag – Translated from a German Magazine Review

Filling the gap between Swing, ‘50s Rock’n’Roll and Rockabilly with ease. GM – Blue Suede News #46 Spring

One of the better singers currently working the rockabilly revival circuit. Bob Cianci – The River Reporter – The Music Scene

Rockabilly Magazine gives “The Rockabilly Lover” five stars.

The style and quality gives you a mental image of girls screaming and fainting in the aisles, and with Danny’s good looks that probably aren’t far from the truth. Car Kulture Deluxe

Gavin Jones is a grandmaster of the double bass. Gavin is a musician’s musician. His knowledge of and affinity for music’s in general are apparent as he wends his sure way through passages hot and cool, stormy and sublime. D.C. Larson – Rockabilly Magazine

A mix of rockabilly & swing that packs in more musicianship, melody & talent than 99% of what you’ll find theses days on MTV! Henry R. Kujawa – The Forbidden Zone

Danny is among the select vocal talents whose range and capability mark them as exceptional. While there are many competent singers of certain ability who do well enough when remaining within any given genre, Danny knows no such restriction. A singer nonpareil of seemingly-boundless melodic scope, he is truly and artist where others are merely craftsman. D.C. Larson – Rockabilly Magazine

This compilation is real and from the early eighties as I know the band Western Waste(the original) out of El Segundo along with Genetic Damage. ILL WILL was quite popular in those days as they had done the compilation “Life is Ugly so why not kill yourself” with ANTI and Mood of Defiance. This was a time when Dez Cadena was fronting Redd Cross and the Nip Drivers were doing backyard shows with WW and GD in Hawthorne and the beach cities. I think Mark G. was the producer and still has the original tapes.
