Mighty happy to have HELMUT LIMBECK on board for as many shows as he is available! He also works with his legendary bluegrass group Helmut & The Hillbillies (40 years) who in their hayday won bluegrass competitions resulting in an invitation to play in the USA. 


Years of working with Cripple Creek and Just Country Lite make him a known entity in the music scene.  He is a great fan of Bill Monroe and his bluegrass contemporaries like Jimmy Martin as well as George Jones. Mandolin, fiddle, blues harp and guitar (speed flatpicker) are his main instruments.


Helmut is featured on FANS' FAVORITES II on harp, mandoline and backing vocals as well as having a Limbeck/Coates original "THINKING OF BILL" on the album.

Gabor Bardfalvi comes from deep in the land of the Magyar, Szeged Hungary. He loves playing Coates's style of Americana music and has grown in style as a country bassman and rockabilly slapper over the years. He is on Dan's albums and has become a fine harmony singer. On board since 1996!
