Centered in Albany, New York, the Zillionaires are:
Dave Danks of Saratoga Springs, NY on mandolin, banjo-mandolin,
ukulele and vocals – master of a bottomless repertoire of tunes and
odd-ball songs. The fulcrum of the Zillionaire Yankee-Swing.
Andy Davis of Burden Lake, NY on guitars and vocals – he of the
mellifluous voice, and the well versed proprietor of all styles,
from jazz to folk and tango to rock. The indispensable rhythm master
and counter point melody maker.
Billy Drislane of Burlington, Vermont, fiddle, guitar, vocals –
holds the band together with the repertoire and email lists.
Composer of the in-house Zillionaire fiddle tunes and lyrics. Eyes,
ears and fingers on the dance pulse.
Dave Ray of Menands, NY, fiddle – the one and only Dr. Jazz,
plays the quick notes, the high harmonies, and the improvisations.
Klezmer, swing, old-time, contra tunes and pop – he covers them
Frank Stettner – of Saugerties, NY on the bass and
vocals. The Zillionaire on the bottom, keeps the foundation moving.
Sings the high notes.
