Daniel Band was formed by Dan McGabe (vocals/bass) and Bill Findlay (guitar/keyboard) in 1981. The line-up was completed by Tony Rossi (vocals/guitar) and Matt Delduca (drums). Taking their inspiration from April Wine, Triumph and Y & T they specialized in melodic Hard Rock with extended keyboard and guitar parts. Unlike their peers in the Christian Rock style, the religious messages played a subservient role to the high quality music on their 5 releases, On Rock (1982), Straight Ahead (1983), Run From The Darkness (1984), Rise Up(1986) and Running Out Of Time (1987). They disappeared shortly after, failing to get the attention they deserved.
