"I''ve been Blessed with the gift of music. I don''t know why music comes to me, sometimes I wake up with whole songs that I''ve never heard before, playing in my head, and they''re good songs. Other times I start with an idea or an intention, and if you listen long enough and stay out of the way it will write itself.
Like I said I don''t know why it happens, but I do know it''s my responsibility to honor the music, put it together the best I can .Fortunately, I also have a gift for finding great players, not just great musicians, they are nice people, people that you enjoy on an off the stage, people I consider family. But as players, they play from the tips of their toes on up, it''s part of their being, and they keep challenging themselves to grow and learn!
When we perform, or record a new song, or CD, it''s more than the rhythms, the notes and the vocals. It''s all of our heart and souls coming together to form a life of it''s own. An energy. When you come to our gigs or listen to our CDs the energy has a chance to be shared and expand. I''m very proud of our music and all who lend themselves to it. I would love to share it with you, take it out for a test drive!
Thanks and all the best."

"Try squeezing into Symposium for mega-popular D.C. & Co."
"An evening with D.C. & Co. means a Blues Rock dance hall melt down, salted and seasoned with saxophone solos, incendiary guitar playing and big doses of Allman Brothers power Rhythms.
Dave Costarella''s joyfully funky originals, set along side some classic rock covers also contain just enough jazz licks from the horn section to top the tunes off with a playful froth.
Here is a seven piece band you will be glad you got together with and glad they got you feeling good!"
Ray Grunnert - Lancaster Intellegencer Journal
"Like D.C. says: "Live Music for Live People" - it would definitely be a party to hear this band live!!
R.C. - The Blue Zone
"D.C. has a serious career ahead of him. He writes on a world class level. His singing style is unique in that it harkens back to the big band singers and at the same time has up to date rock energy, which translates into direct emotional communication with the audience."...
Herb Gart - Manager, Producer, of Bill Cosby, Don McLean, Charlie Daniels
"Leader, Dave Costarella, has a gritty style and a rocky soulful voice and a band to die for!"
"Alive -with a wild unpredictable mix of Rock, R & B, Jazz, Latin Percussion and Swing. Lancaster''s D.C. & Co. fits the word Live to a tee!
Bar Fly Monthly
"Pennsylvania soulsters D.C. & Co. pull out the big-band sound on Somethin''s Happenin'' (self released) Horns, organ and percussion push the feel toward Santana and Steely Dan. Tight arrangements and on-the-money vocals from bandleader Dave Costarella have class and vigor - assuredly a great live act."
