The Dangling Success

When some people need a change in life, they get a toupee and a sports car. But what do musicians do?

They form the ultimate Groove/R&B/Smooth Jazz band that can only be described as “an aphrodisiac for the spirit.” That's the story behind the dangling success! Five seasoned musicians with varied backgrounds got together to play music with the kind of soul that moves not only your feet, but your spirit too!

These musicians have already paid their dues with acts like the Isley Brothers, Don Mclean, Roy Orbison, the Shirelles, John Platania, Bernard Purdie and Guilherme Franco. But you've never heard them like this. All at once, it's smooth and sultry, yet energetic and electrifying. Sweet and sweaty sax melodies by Mark “Dr. Sax” Neikrowitz soar above the textured and smart rhythms of guitarist, Gioron Wilkins. Solid and soulful polyrhythms crack from the snare drum of Paul Rossman. Keeping the low end melodically satisfied is Mike McDonough on bass while Dan Odescalchi fills the musical crevasses on keyboards.

The performances are electrifying, as Dr. Sax leaps onto pit sofas with the audience and stands on tables! Often dangle guitarist and bass player are boogying on the dance floor with the crowd...while never missing a note! As a band, the dangling success is dedicated to lifting spirits and putting excitement back into the lives of listeners. They make up one smokin' soul jazz band, just waiting to jumpstart your spirits again.

One thing is clear, the fun the band members have on stage is contagious, and the audience is quick to join in.
