Live and In Person: 

Here's just a little info update as of June 5th.  First, Big Al (aka Otis) came through his open heart by-pass surgery with flyin' colors and then met with his surgeon this week, who has given him the green light to start performin' again in 2 - 3 weeks.  However....we have NO public gigs this summer.  So Al will be playing private ones.   If you're interested in bookin' the band, contact Danny C at or phone: 802-223-5327.   Billy's ability to play this summer and maybe fall is still unknown.  He may be able to but if not, probably Pete Riley again this year on electric bass fillin' in for him.     

Danny C, however,  wants to tell fans  'n' friends that  he  has quite a number of personal appearances booked with three other bands he has worked with for a number of years:  The VT Bluegrass Pioneers (which includes the Lindner brothers, Banjo Dan & Willy, formerly of "Banjo Dan & the Mid-Nite Plowboys",  Vermont's premier bluegrass band from 1972-2012); The [formerly WDEV] Radio Rangers, who used to have a 15 min live Saturday morning show on WDEV, Waterbury going back to 1986, and a trio called McCaffrey, Coane & Rowell (MCR) which does vintage country material.   Shows involving any of those groups will be posted on this website as well as Starline's Facebook page.

So that's the story from here for now.  We're sorry Starline will not be performing for the public this summer.   We sure hope we can get back on track this fall and over winter in order to return to action in 2022.  We also hope all our fans an' friends continue to hang in there with us during this time.  We love ya all - you have been so supportive over our 23 yrs together as a band.  In the meantime, take care of yourselves and we'll hopefully see ya sometime down the road!

The Starline Rhythm Boys


"These boys remind me of the good old days, with a sound that's between Memphis and Nashville.  Its good, clean and from the heart - and nowadays that's fresher."
-Vassar Clements
"This is the Real Deal. The Starline Rhythm Boys know how to make it rock and let it swing.  They dish it out full strength, adult dosage.  I'll take all of this I can get."
-Bill Kirchen
"The subjects of these songs - sin, salvation, family farms, women, drunk tanks, job layoffs, diners, and dearly departed friends - are songs by and for the people.  There is no pretension or rock star attitude in what you boys are laying down, just straightforward songs from the heart that are some of the best newly written and recorded country songs since the giants of country music have gone to rockabilly heaven."
-Deke Dickerson
