Welcome to my CyberMusic World...
This page is the home of my music interests, my music related offerings to the Internet, and also a brief history of my own professional music career.
Since I "entered cyberspace" in November 1994 as part of computer consultant career, I immediately sought for a way to provide a service to the Internet community - both professionally and personally. After seeing Amy Grant in concert the following February, it just seemed natural to write a review of the concert (though I'd never before attempted to do so, nor had the desire), and share it with my fast growing cyber-family. Writing and posting that review (which can be found here) was all I needed to discover my new love - digital journalist and webmaster.
Please find listed below, links to music related pages that I publish, or am involved in some capacity.
Links to my sites...
Danl's Online Reviews, Interviews, and Articles
As already mentioned, I began by writing reviews of concerts. This is a comprehensive list of my writings, many of which are actually parts of the following web pages.
Official Whiteheart Fan Home Page
This is the first music web page I created. After meeting the guys in Whiteheart in March 1994, I later became their "ex-officio" computer consultant, and developed the online Whiteheart FAQ. This FAQ transformed into what would become the official Whiteheart Page.
Rich Mullins Mailing List Archive Page
After first conversing privately with fellow cyberfans of the late Rich Mullins, in March 1995 I formed this mailing list and most ambitious project (having some inside connections here in Wichita) to keep those in cyberspace informed of info on Rich. After the tragic accident that took his life, the list grew quite rapidly and remains at over 1500 subscribers, while most information posted now is related The Legacy of a Kid Brother of St Frank.
Recently the RichMailList has merged with sister page Calling Out Your Name at kidbrothers.net.
Mitch McVicker Web Page
I first met Mitch in October 1996 while he was touring with the late Rich Mullins. Shortly thereafter we had the opportunity to meet and discuss a web page for him. Those efforts were postponed by the tragic accident that took his friend's life and almost cut short his own career. Finally after several months of recuperation and delay (and miracles!) we launched Mitch's web page and mailing list on June 21, 1998, the same day he released his independent self-titled CD (produced by Rich).
After Rich died, his ministry to native americans was carried on by his brother, David Mullins, and good friend, Alyssa Loukota, as The Legacy.
Kid Brothers of St Frank
Recently David Mullins and his wife, Robin started a philanthropic organization separate from the Legacy as Kid Brothers.
Michael Aukofer Web Page
Michael Aukofer has toured with Rich Mullins, Mitch McVicker, The Ragamuffin Band, and many others. In addition to carrying on the tradition of the hammered dulcimer in Contemporary Christian Music, made famous by his departed friend Rich, Michael has also kept busy producing (Ryan Long, Alathea, Eric Hauck), recording, writing, and teaching. Another of Michael's projects has been the annual Appalachian Christmas Quartet concert mini-tour of Wichita, KS and surrounding areas. Click here for the ACQ page, including scrapbooks from years past, and sound clips from their CD (new one coming).
My godson, Jake Livgren, has been around music all his life - from the band his mom and dad and I were in - to his Uncle Kerry ... (Livgren that is). Jabberwockie has been around for a few years, but as of April 2000, with the move from Topeka to Nashville - they are going for it!
A new young artist from Haven, KS (near Wichita), with a dynamite voice. My new favorite female vocalist's style ranges from pop to traditional country to 70's country rock. With a smile from the heart and a heart for Christ, this young lady is worth a listen (which you can do on her web page).
Other sites I'm involved with...
Remember the rock band Kansas? They were a big part of my young musical life as well as an inspiration. I have known Kerry Livgren (co-founding member of the group) and family for over 25 years (since before Kansas was Kansas - that is, when they were White Clover), and I would like to provide proof here that Kerry is alive and well and living back in Kansas. He is also very busy recording and producing with his new record company, Numavox Records. Here are some links to related pages.

My music career timeline...
Four months before the Beatles hit US shores, my mom handed me a guitar and said, "Here, you're going to learn how to play this."
More to Come
Stayed tuned for the continuing saga of Danl's music career including pictures, video, and sound clips.
