My LP player has been broken for a long time and I finally got around to getting a replacement. I decided to crank up some good oldies and pulled out a favorite D&K album of mine. The music and lyrics started ministering to my soul once again. I'm so thankful for their pioneering work in Christian Contemporary music that helped shape my faith in a critical stage of my life. I'm almost positive I saw Dana Key in a small restaurant in Middleton Michigan years ago. He was wearing a worn-out D&K t-shirt but I was too bashful to introduce myself. We made eye contact and I think he could tell I was wondering. I got to see them in concert once when I was in college and really appreciated the genuine spirit of God evident in all the band members throughout the show. Thanks for putting together this website.

This is an excellent tribute website for one of the best Christian bands ever. In the late 70's, I was enamored by their progressive rock sound on their first album. The 2nd album was a bit more accessible, but maintained the prog rock influences. After that, their work adapted to the times and morphed into a more "pop" oriented sound. Despite the more "commercial" approach, they were still making great albums with superb writing, musicianship and most important, a strong Christian message. As they moved into the 90's, they returned to a more rock oriented sound - coming full circle. I was saddened to learn of the news of Dana's passing - but, now he's with Jesus.

The music of D and K has stood the test of time. In 2014, any of their recordings sound fresh and up to date - and I listen to them very often.

I became a fan of Degarmo and Key when a friend turned me on to their first album, Straight On. I had played a lot of rock music through the late 70s and was looking for music with a Christian basis that could stand up to secular offerings. Phil Keaggy and D&K were that bridge for me. I was fortunate enough to see the band several times, meeting Dana briefly once. It was immediately apparent the music, as good as it was, for Dana was a means to an end... evangelizing the lost or encouraging fellow believers. He made a huge impact on me.

Well, life goes on and I got very busy. Dana hadn;t put out an album in a long time and I lost track of him. I was shocked to find out, over three years after the fact, that he has gone on to be with Jesus. So now I am very reminded of the first song I ever heard him since all those decades ago...

You are the long distance runner... keep your face in the wind and you'll soon be home. I know Dana is enjoying his home now, and it is a rest well earned. Love you, brother, and thank you for all the good times, every moment of my life.

D & K was and is awesome; their music rocked back then and still does. They have very powerful and thought provoking lyrics with hard hitting music to drive their messages home. I was introduced to their music in the 80's by a good friend along with Petra, Michael W. Smith, Russ Taff, Amy Grant, White Heart, and others. Although I did get to see, meet, and get an autograph from Dana on a solo tour, I regret that I did not ever get to see them together in concert. That would have been awesome. I was so sad to hear of his death but I know he is rock ?in in Heaven. There are so many great Christian groups that are no longer around; it would be great if they would re-release their albums. Today?s young people need to hear these groups and see how talented these artists were and also their faith and devotion to stand up and out for God and lift up His name. Because He is a "Radical"

Thank you for this amazing website--already discovered there're some new mp3's available on Amazon since the last time I looked. We all owe you a debt for doing this.

D and K was a major part of the soundtrack of my teens. One of the highlights of my childhood was getting to eat a Waffle House in Fayetteville, Georgia after a concert--there's even a picture of me in my high school yearbook having fun at that show. Great guys in addition to being great musicians. And that wasn't even the best show I ever saw. Their set at AlantaFest in the late 80's for the D&K album was incindiery.

Thanks again. Love to all the other Aliens and Strangers!
