The Ozark Mountain Daredevils

The „Daredevils“ name has much to do with the long hair and beards sported by the band in the 1970s, a rejection of the more conservative style of their native Ozarks during that decade. It is mentioned in the book about the band „It Shined,“ by Michael Granda, that the band name was derived from „Cosmic Corn Cob & His Amazing Ozark Mountain Daredevils,“ a name that John Dillon came up with at a Kansas City „naming party“ after the band was told that the name they had previously been using, „Family Tree,“ was already taken. The band shortened the name because none of the band members at the time wanted to be called „Cosmic Corn Cob,“ and they did not want the name to sound similar to The Amazing Rhythm Aces.

In 1971 Steve Cash, Randle Chowning, John Dillon, Elizabeth Anderson, Larry Lee and Michael Granda began playing together with Bill Jones (flute, horns, formerly of Mike Bunge’s band Granny’s Bathwater) and Rick Campanelli (piano) at Springfield, Missouri’s New Bijou Theater for small crowds of friends on Wednesday night under the name „Family Tree“ („Emergency Band,“ „Burlap Socks“ and „Buffalo Chips“ were other names they considered for this grouping in the early days). Larry Lee was working at the New Bijou as a bartender. The band recorded a demo at Springfield’s Top Talent studios and that demo, containing such early songs as „Rhythm of Joy,“ found its way to New York music executive John Hammond via the hands of band friend Steve Canaday, who was co-owner of the New Bijou Theater.
