No, the musical director for "Dancing With The Stars" is the immensely talented Harold Wheeler. He really kicked ass on some of those arrangements. He had a terrific bunch of Local 47 guys filling that band.

Which I noticed later in the run (along with the fact that the singers were being credited, which is a nice touch--I wish they were put more up front of the band, not to dwell on them, but to acknowledge them).

And viewing a promo for "Strictly Come Dancing," I noted that "Stars" uses the original Brit theme music, which I assume Holloway wrote.
