Danny Coane, the rockin' pride of Vermont, just keeps rollin'. He has fronted bluegrass, country and blues bands, but the rockabilly, rock 'n roll act "The Throbulators" gained him national exposure. Billy Bratcher holds down the beat for the trio on upright bass. He toured with Texas Juke Joint King Wayne Hancock and became well known throughout the US for mastering the unique "slap bass" style. Al Lemery shines bright under any stage light. See starlinerhythmboys.com and https://www.facebook.com/starlinerhythmboys/
