The Band


Tim Daniels

Tim's affection for fast classic muscle cars, giving his fans a great show and his secret sauce (Fireball Whiskey) make him the perfect frontman. Tim's voice has been heard in local rock bands in the past, prior to settling into his true calling... Country Rock!

Bruce Towle

Bruce has been a working musician for over half his life. He's played in nationally touring country and rockabilly bands. He's a founding member of 5th Gear (now Tim Daniels Band) and gives us the smooth low bass guitar and kickin vocals


Darren Cobb

Bringer of the thunder, Darren Cobb is no stranger to the music scene. Rocking music over 20 years of his life, he brings his own 'flavor' to TDB's brand of country rock

Chris Sandler

Chris has been leading bands and playing guitar for 30+ years. You'll see him rocking with TDB, at River Hills Church and riding motorcycles all summer long!

Norm Couture

You may have seen Norm in many local bands in your area... you could say that "Norm gets around". Number 1 in our 3 part TDB guitar army!

Jason Phelps

Jason Phelps is a mulit-talented musician. He's been playing in Madison area bands for the past decade and makes our "trifecta" of guitarists
