Welcome

Welcome to the online home of Willoughby, OH musician Dan McCoy. Tool around a bit and check out where he'll be playing, what projects he's up to and other kind of mischief he may be into.

Another New Demo Added To SoundCloud & The Music Page 

I've added another home demo of a song, Change of Venue,I originally recorded with my band Block back in 1999. I've revamped the song a bit & when it ends up on the new album it will sound a bit more different but you'll still dig it. I promise!  Click the pic for the sounds...


New Demo Added To SoundCloud Page & Music Page 

Hey everyone! Just a heads up that I've added a new demo to my SoundCloud page. The song is called Friends of Mine & is part of a collection of new songs that will end up being my new album whenever I get around to recording it. You can check out the song here...

If, for some reason, you can't check out the song over at SoundCloud you can find it on the Music page on this website under the "iPhone & Home Recordings" album which is at the bottom of the Music page...or by clicking here...http://mccoymusic.com/track/1022184/friends-of-mine-home-demo?feature_id=170113 Hope you enjoy the song!

New Video for Moving Day 

I finally did one of those "sit around at home & record yourself with your iPad" videos. It's on my YouTube channel which you can get to by either following the link below or clicking on the YouTube link to the right. This video is an acoustic version of Moving Day. Check it out, like it, hate it, share it, laugh at it...whatever. Hope you enjoy it!

The Concrete Cowboy Podcast 

Hey Friends & Neighbors! My good buddy Clint Holley (AKA the Concrete Cowboy) does a podcast where he interviews Cleveland area songwriters & has them play a few songs. I had the privelage of being a part of episode 4 and am sharing it with you folks right here...

Riding For Cancer Research 

Last July I participated in Velosano, a Cleveland Clinic sponsored bicycle ride to raise money for cancer research. There are a number of courses to ride ranging from 12 miles to 206. I did the 50 mile course & am doing it again this July. My goal is to raise at least $1000 if not more. If you would like to contribute to this worthy cause please follow the link below. I thank you in advance!

We're Going to the Dogs (& other fur ball friends)! 

I'm stoked to announce that we (Dan McCoy & the Standing 8s) will be playing the 6th annual Lake Humane Society Rescue Rock Off! This event has emerged over the past few years as one of the premiere events the shelter puts on & we're planning on it being another stellar show. All the bands that played last year will be returning so if you missed it in '15 you can catch a reprise this year. Sunday, March 6 is the date with the action kicking off at noon & ending at 5pm. Tickets are $20 pre-sale or $25 at the door with all the proceeds going to the shelter. There will be raffles & food & MUSIC, MUSIC, MUSIC! Something for everyone! The bands donating their time & talent this year are Horsefeathers, Dan McCoy & the Standing 8s, The Shizz, Route 86 & Collage (in that order). As an added bonus for folks who can't make it that day but would like to donate we will have a pledge page set up soon. Details for the show can be found here...

Hope to see y'all there!


 

Welcome to 2016 

Howdy all! Happy New Year & all that good stuff. It's looking like I will be releasing SOMETHING this year! Yes, I COULD be more vague but I won't. I have a slew of songs that I've been working on over the past year or so & have enough for 2 full albums with lots of leftovers ready to go for a couple more. At the very least I plan on getting a single out & about for your listening pleasure. In the meantime I give you this link to my set from last night (January 13) at the 10x3 Songwriter's Showcase held at Brother's Lounge in Lakewood, Ohio. Enjoy & git yourselves to a show soon!
Cheers,

Thank You, Happy Holidays & Happy New Year... 

I just want to give a quick THANK YOU to everyone that came out to the shows this year, bought/downloaded the music & supported the bands & I. It is greatly appreciated & I think you folks are fantastic folks! New music will be here in 2016 as I have a slew of songs I'm in the process of writing. Have a safe & fun holiday season & I will see y'all in the new year.
