Just who is Dizaster Horse?  A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...  oops, wrong story.  

Several years ago, a lead singer and a drummer met, fell in love, married, and one of the products of their love was... Dizaster Horse!  Rehearsals began in a small, extra room in their home, then moved to various studios.  Along the way, it has been our privilege to work with several outstanding musicians who left their mark on the band, but decided to move along their own paths. Many thanks to them all!

Today, Dizaster Horse consists of (in order from left to right in the above picture:

Steve Mendelson: Guitar

Debbie Wheelan: Lead vocals

Tom Wheelan: Drums

Dan Kohansby: Bass Guitar and vocals

Emile Hsu: Guitar, Keyboard, and vocals

During the past few years we've been honing our craft, as well as our song selections.  While "Songs you forgot you loved" is our motto, we also strive to include songs you may not have had time to forget yet, or even songs you haven't heard of... yet... but ones we're sure you'll love as much as we do.
