WHO’S YOUR DADDY plays an eclectic and eminently danceable mix of rock, funk, and pop. It’s our mission to bring everyone who sees us back to that simpler time when they were 15 years old, rocking out in front of the mirror with an air guitar or hairbrush and eating mom’s fresh-baked apple pie. (More on the pie, later.)
The five of us are a bunch of semi-responsible adults with jobs and families and stuff who hang out in the drummer’s mom’s basement, drink beer, and make a racket while surrounded by KISS and Farrah Fawcett posters.
I think that pretty much says it all.
Oh, here’s the pie part. The drummer’s mom usually bakes us a nice apple pie for our rehearsals. It’s great to be a 15-year-old boy all over again for a few hours every other Tuesday.
WHO’S YOUR DADDY cut its rock ‘n’ roll teeth playing the elementary and middle school circuits back in 2008.
We formed at the behest of a very insistent school principal where our children were attending kindergarten at the time. They were having an end of the year party and wanted a band. The problem was the five of us barely knew each other, let alone had ever played music together.
The kids named the band (!) and we cobbled together a dozen of the easiest songs we could think of.
We butchered our way through our first gig and were a huge hit!
(That’s what happens when you play in front of five-year-olds and their parents who are just happy to be out of the house.)
The Daddies have since graduated to playing for adults in some of the finer dive bars around King and Snohomish Counties. We’re known for our “stand on the bar and sing along” shows and inappropriate banter between songs.
It’s much more our scene than school cafeterias and playgrounds.
Plus, we can swear a whole lot more and don’t have to worry about being scolded by the principal.
