Tolan McNeil is a very talented man. He's a crazy great guitar player, and a stellar song writer. I was once lucky enough to be in a band with Tolan, a band that lasted the duration of one show (a "Funspiel" at the Curling Club, the group being an early "Golden Country" grouping of David's also featuring Mike Irwin and Torben Wilson). I sang seven songs, which was the most I had ever done in a row at that point- actually, I don't think I've ever topped that! A certain Bonnie I know split her pants dancing. And Tolan helped me out when I froze at the beginning of Roger Miller's "In the Summertime" (You Don't Want My Love)- I panicked and couldn't remember the first line. Thanks Tolan.
This video appeared on facebook today, and has rightly received many positive reviews. It's pretty great. Playing with Tolan are Rad Juli and Ryan Beattie- so many talents in this town! Here is a CD of Tolan's that I love a lot- "There Will Always Be a Salesman": http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/tolanmcneil We need to hear and see more of Tolan's music!
