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.

 

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!

 

Buffalo, NY Sofar Sounds Show 

I've been invited to play one of those secret Sofar Sounds shows. This one is in Buffalo, NY the night before Thanksgiving. If interested in attending shoot me a message at dan@mccoymusic.com & I'll get you the details. ;)

CD Release Party Sept. 22, 2017 

Friday Sept. 22 is the big CD release party for the "Live & Alone" album. Show time is 8pm. Come on out for fun times, sing alongs, drinks, food & shenanigans! The whole affair goes down at Beal's Pickles & Pints in Willoughby, OH where the album was recorded.

 

Homemade Sin (minus Dan Baird) To Play Willoughby 9.7.17! 

What does that headline have to do with me? Who are Homemade Sin & Dan Baird? What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow? Ok, I can't answer that last one but the first two I can. I'll answer the second question first. Homemade Sin is a band comprised of Dan Baird, former lead singer & guitarist for the Georgia Satellites, Warner Hodges, guitarist for Jason & the Scorchers and formerly of Drivin' & Cryin'. Mr. Baird will not be in attendance the night of the show due to some health issues he's working through (he's going to be just fine) but they have enlisted a couple of great musicians to fill in so all will be right with the world. to answer the first question, Russell (Standing 8s drummer) & I will be running sound for the band that night! 

The show is a warm up for their tour that starts the next night & will be held at Beal's Pickles & Pints. Start time is 8pm & I believe they will be doing 2 sets. If you're into good old fashioned no frills rock & roll then you won't want to miss this show. There is no cover charge so get there early, grab some great food (that's the only kind of food they have there) & get ready for a fun night!

Live & Alone - The Album 

The digital release for the new live album Live & Alone is now available at select digital outlets (listed below) as well as this site in the music section. The album will be added to more sites & services very soon so keep checking them out if you haven't seen it yet. The CDs themselves should be available by Sept. 22 which will be the release show at Beal's Pickles & Pints in Willoughby, OH, the location the album was recorded. Hope you dig the album & thank you all for your continued support!
