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.

 

Thank you to my supporters for fighting cancer! 

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that donated to my Velosano ride (that happened this past Saturday). This year I rode in honor of my dear friend Holly Suchland who will be having surgery this Friday. Thanks to your generosity I was able to raise $1500 for cancer research at the Cleveland Clinic. Lots of love & appreciation to the following folks... 

Melissa Burkett, Dan King & Sally King, Renee Bedenk, Kathy Beda, Ryan Chambers, Margaret Beder Skinder, Eric Hanson, Tom Federico, Ray Webb, Michael O'Brien, Russell Bickert, Christina Harrington, Diane M. Beatty, Joe Levstik & Melissa Levstik, Dan Budreo, Sarah Bloom Anderson, me mum Bonnie Leskovac, James Curtis Smith, Alli Milburn, Jennifer Ersek, Rich Harmon & Brittney Elizabeth. 

Donations are still be accepted through October so if you'd like to throw a few more bucks towards the cause shoot me a message & I'll send you the link. My goal is/was to raise $2000 & every little bit helps. 100% of the money goes to finding a cure. THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR THE SUPPORT!!!

DTW Songwriter Showcase #3 

The DTW Songwriter Showcases are quickly becoming a hit! This month's guests are Kevin Conaway & Seth Ohm. Here's the scoop...

 

Kevin Conaway is an ASCAP-registered singer/songwriter with several hours-worth of original material. Kevin draws a lot of influence from alternative rock bands and artists such as Toad the Wet Sprocket, Oasis, Jimmy Eat World, Howie Day, and Guster, along with just a touch of classic and progressive rock influence from bands like Pink Floyd and Porcupine Tree. With a combination of intelligent lyrics, strong melodies, and infectious hooks, Kevin crafts songs that are bound to be stuck in your head long after hearing them.

 

Seth Ohm Band is story telling at its finest. North East Ohio raised, Seth spins stories of the journey of life, love and finding oneself. He bears all he is thinking and feeling, yet leaves room for interpretation. There are two versions of the band. The southern rock band (Seth Ohm Band, SOB) and the acoustic band (Seth Ohm Band Acoustic Experience, SOBae).

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!
