Pledge Money to WJCU.org! 

My friends Jason & Eric, of the show NEORocks which airs Mondays from 8pm-10pm on wjcu.org, are asking for money. I mean not them personally but for the radio station. They are raising funds to keep the station up & running and for their show to remain on the air. Why is their show important you may ask? They play nothing but local northeast Ohio (hence the name of the show) artists. Head on over to www.wjcu.org & drop a few dollars in the virtual till. Thank you in advance!

Dan to Host DTW Songwriter's Showcase 

Starting March 29 I will be hosting a monthly songwriter's showcase at Corks Wine Bar in downtown Willoughby. The event will take place the last Thursday of each month & will feature 2 songwriters in addition to my performance. I'm very excited about bringing original music to Lake County & the opportunity to work with the kind folks at Corks. This should be a great time & I encourage everyone to come on out & support not only live music but ORIGINAL music!

Happy 2018 - New Stuff! 

Happy New Year to ya'. Hope everyone had a great holiday season & all that. We here at mccoymusic.com (we = me) have all kinds of stuff being cooked up. A new single will be released in the not too distant future, gigs are lining up & the 8s will hopefully be in the studio in the latter half of the year. Keep checking back for updates! Here's a video of Other Than That shot this past November in Buffalo, NY. Enjoy!
