In 1983 Neal Grandstaff (a.k.a. Jonny Dark) and Dan Stueber played their first gig together and found their musical connection. Since then they’ve had a joyful musical journey, playing countless gigs and musical projects together including Jonny Dark and the Wondertones. Over the years there have been many incarnations of Jonny Dark and the Wondertones, but this newest version, with horn and string arrangements by the phenomenal keyboardist/arranger Joe Millward, was the one to record.
Like Neal’s and Dan’s experience together, this CD is a musical Journey. From the opening cut, John Carpenter’s “Escape from New York”, then heading down “Route 66” from Chicago to LA, it’s love found, love lost and found again, maybe. With an organic live feel this CD is also a tribute to some of their favorite musical inspirations, from Motown to funk, jazz standards to the great Ray Charles. So sit back and enjoy the ride!
Thanks for listening!
Neal and Dan
