"The only drummer who gets it done on time."

-M. Mernagh-NOW Magazine

"Danno is the drummer that I see and hear everywhere. He's ubiquitous, and that's a good thing because he's a great player and a heck of a nice guy."

-Michael Filer-Editor-Canadian Musician magazine

"Danno is always my go-to guy when I need a drummer for gigs or studio. I am always confident in his ability to deliver unbelievable grooves no matter what the style or genre of music is! His easygoing disposition and high level of professionalism always makes him a pleasure to work with."

-Aimee Page (Country Singer)

"You're a bad mutha-drummer."

-D. J. Jones-James Brown former guitarist

"I once saw Danno play Seasons in the Abyss with just a tire from a '95 Toyota Tercel, half of a cracked cymbal attached to his bass players head and 2 frisbees for a kit...after that we pretty much stopped writing songs with drum parts-he's THAT good."

-Matt Wells-Much Music vj, rock journalist and singer of Bucket Truck
