Jugglers and Thieves


Jugglers and Thieves was a Detroit band in the late ’80s early ’90s. We released one self-titled album, which was voted “Best Record By a Local Band” in 1989 by the readers of the Detroit alternative weekly magazine Detroit Metro Times. Later we were voted “Next Local Band Most Likely To Make It Big.” But despite college radio success we never could get a record contract.

I was the bass player & I quit the band in 1990 because I fell in love with my sweetie Darryl Dybka, married, and moved to Nashville TN.
