The Castaways

  • The original members were James Donna on keyboards, Robert Folschow and Dick Roby on guitar, Roy Hensley on bass guitar and Dennis Craswell on drums. Folschow contributed the distinctive falsetto vocal on "Liar, Liar".
  • In the early 1980s two members, Folschow and Craswell, led a west coast version of the band under the name The Castaways in Pismo Beach, California. Folschow, who was using the stage name of Bob Leroy, played guitar and a keytar on many songs, including "Liar, Liar", which had the distinctive piano intro/riff. The two had local musicians such as B3 organist Dennis Hayes providing additional keyboard and bass backup.
  • Bass guitarist Hensley died on 8 June 2005 and was buried in Fairmont, Minnesota. The Castaways continue to perform today, although according to their website (, Donna is the only founding member still in the line-up.
