Biography

Danny and the Bygones combines the sincerity, the stories, and the singularity of the singer-songwriter genre with the experimentation, the improvisation, and the explosion of sound that defines Rock & Roll. Formed in late 2006 when singer-songwriter Danny Greene started putting up flyers all around Penn State campus stating:

“Songwriter looking for a guitarist,
who can sing harmonies,
can write music,
knows how to shred on guitar, and...
must love the Beach Boys.”

Surprisingly, Danny actually found such a behemoth of musical talent. Vince Paglione, answered the call and the two instantly became a songwriting machine, crafting 10 songs within the first 2 weeks they knew each other. The rest of the band quickly came together through friendships and mutual loves of harmony. The band consists of Danny and Vince and a rotating super-group of musicians. Danny and the Bygones can be seen on stage bringing their complex and powerful songs to life via piano, guitar, cello, upright bass, drums, and of course three-part harmonies

Lyrics

Mom's Minivan

Written By: Danny and the Bygones

I'm sorry Mom
I'm sorry Dad
I should have told you where I was going
But if I did, I knew that you
would find a reason to hold me back

Nick and Matt and Brad and Dan,
We're all cramped in Mom's minivan.
Daft Punk blarin' in our ears,
Yea, we thought we were wiser than the years
But where we were going, we'd never know
It only mattered that we went

But I just can't go back that way no matter how I try
The roads are blocked and the names have changed, I'm scared what I might find
Just throw me in the car
I need someplace new

Midnight quests for that softie shake
It didn't take much to feed our hunger
Simple people with a simple goal:
To stay out later, much longer than we should

Roll back, roll back my way

I'm sorry Mom- I'm sorry Dad
I should have told you where I was going
But if I did, I knew that you
would find a reason to hold me back

But even with the headaches and the cops and tickets too
We ended up just fine without you telling us what to do
Just throw me in the car
I need someplace new
I need someplace new
I need someplace new
