I would like to thank the following:
God, for giving me these songs to share.
My wife and muse, Michele, for living with the standard issue, pump salesman/“artist” for all these years and for listening! (also, for suggesting Bounce!). Love You, Honey!
My favorite sister, Jean Roos, who has been my main feedbacker and listener since day one! Thanks, Jeannie!
All My Brothers and especially Greg for hanging out here in Ohio! Also, George for the use of his fine painting! Thanks Bros!
My Mom and Dad (may they rest in peace!) for giving me life!
Mr Freddy DeMarco, the Sterle Bros, and Eric Baltrinic for pouring their artistic talents and technical expertise into this project and giving it a good vibe from start to finish! Thanks again, guys – this album would not have been near what it became without all of your contributions and efforts.
Thanks to the Platis Family Offbeat Percussion band (Greg, Michele, Jeannie and Tony!) – More Cowbell!
