Thanks to the SentiMentals, Chris von Sneidern, Martin Rapalski and all the wonderful folks at The Make Out Room, Eric Ambel, Bill Shupp, Dan Carr, The 22nd Street Irregulars who played on this thing, and to Danny Stuart, for telling me to get on with it.
Special thanks to Deirdre F. White, my parents Mary and Tom Heyman, and the rest of my way too cool family!
I still can’t think of anything better than seeing a great band getting down in a small club, so this one is for Doug Wainoris, DW Gill, Sleepy LaBeef, Rockin’ Lloyd Tripp, Chuck Prophet, The Court & Spark, my good friends Ted Warren, Keith Donnellan, Ted Pappadopolous, Christopher Horner, and for all the “40-on 20-off” die hards that I have had the privilege and pleasure of making music with over the years.
