“I have great respect for Bill Danoff as a songwriter, He has written some of my favorite songs and one of my most successful songs, “Take Me Home Country Roads.” ~ John Denver. Bill Danoff started writing in college and, upon his graduation from Georgetown University with a degree in Chinese, he took the obvious next step . . . and went into full-time music. He has been singing and writing songs since the late 1960s when he performed and co-wrote songs with John Denver. When Bill and his then partner, Taffy Nivert, invited Denver to help them finish writing a song, little did anyone know that the song would soar to the top of the charts. “Take Me Home Country Roads” catapulted John Denver into national prominence. Another Danoff-Nivert song, “I Guess He’d Rather Be in Colorado” was recorded by Denver and became the theme song of Colorado. In the 1970s, Bill was the driving force behind the Starland Vocal Band. “Afternoon Delight” (5 Grammy nominations, two awards, and a place in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame) assured Bill’s place in the national music scene.
> Besides having quick wit and an irreverent sense of humor, Sean McGhee is a master of the 12-string guitar and has an engaging tenor voice. Sean was a founding member of the loved duo Side by Side with Doris Justis. Doris and Sean performed with John Denver’s band in two tribute concerts in Aspen, CO, and were featured on the CD from that event. http://www.dorisjustis.com/side_by_side.htm
> Paul Prestopino moves from piano to harmonica, banjo, mandolin, dobro, recorder, guitars and bass. He is a member of the dance band, Hold the Mustard and has accompanied the Chad Mitchell Trio (for over 50 years) John Denver and Peter, Paul and Mary.
> Bass player Ron Greenstein has played with the Chad Mitchell Trio, The Spook Handy Band and Trio & the Magnolia Street String Band and more.
