• April 2017: Yo Daddy Band Calls it Quits. Sorry Eh!

    Adulting is hard. Proper Careers, wives, kids and friends are great, but they sure take a lot of time we'd otherwise be using for music. the business of this band has been tough lately too. Not as many opportunities to perform as we'd hoped, and they never seem to come with enough advance notice. we had to turn down many nice offers due to personal schedule conflicts. Life gets in the way.

     

    So with summer around the corner, we decided to pull the plug. No regrets, it's been fun.

     

    We'd like to sincerely thank everyone who supported Yo Daddy over our three year run. You know who you are. Cheers everyone, and lets all keep supporting our live music scene!

  • Who's Yo Daddy?

    Doin' it since the 90's and still loving it!

    Yo Daddy is not our first rodeo. We've performed hundreds of times for thousands of live music fans over the years, together and with other bands.  

     

    We all sing, taking equal turns at lead vocal while the other two guys chip in harmony as needed. Both guitarists are equally adept at bass, so we switch instruments regularly to keep things interesting on stage - all night long. We try to pack a lot of entertainment value into a small trio.

    Covers and Originals

    We know a LOT of songs! We like good old rock and roll, blues, edgy country, funky soul. Nothing too hard or heavy, nothing too synthetic. But there's no rules, if we like it and can make it sound good live, it might end up in our set list.

     

    We like popular classic stuff, but sometimes we pick out great tunes by lesser-known artists we think more people should know. We write our own songs too. So while we DO play a lot of well-known favorites, you might not recognize every single song on our list. This is a good thing!

    what's next?

    We hope to see you at our gigs and have some laughs. We'll also keep writing and recording. Once in a while we'll release a new tune. Who knows, maybe a whole album.

     

    If you need a good band to come play, or know someone who does, we'd love to hear from you. We're ready, affordable and always looking for more gigs.

     

    Thanks for checking out our website!

  • That's about all

    ......

     

    Hey, why are you still reading this far down our page? There are better ways to kill time on the internet. Maybe you are thinking of booking us? Do you have a place we could play and a reasonable budget for quality entertainment? Excellent! In that case, please read our continuing sales pitch below.

     

    We're for real.  

     

    Aside from performing death-defying stunts on shopping carts for promo, we are a serious and talented band. Ready to play, well-equipped and able to put on a professional show in your venue. As a bonus, we are reliable, trustworthy and easy to deal with.

     

    We're experienced.

     

    In various former bands we've played everywhere from hotel bars in the sticks, to thousands-deep crowds at huge public events and corporate parties. We've released an album and have been featured on radio and cable TV shows. Collectively we bring ample experience to the table through touring, recording and performing live in hundreds of venues over the years.

     

    We own full production.

     

    No house PA or soundman? No problem. We are ready to go with our own gear and will provide excellent sound and lighting for any room from the smallest pub to rooms up to 2 or 3 hundred people. We don't play too loud, take up too much space, and we always show up on time with shoes and clean shirts.

     

    If your event is really large (400+ guests) then you probably have already lined up AllStar or PK or another large outfit to provide sound and lighting services. We work well with 3rd party production folks and they like us since we don't complain and normally ask for one simple monitor mix on stage. We can supply print promo, stage plot, rider details, etc, for any show as requested. We love performing for larger audiences whenever we've had the chance, we have done several festivals and concert opening slots over the years.

     

    Booking Agency

     

    Our former bands have had many good dealings with agents in the past. Yo Daddy is currently self-represented, but we're happy to discuss music opportunities with anyone.

     

    Thanks for visiting and please don't hesitate to contact us to tell us about any event you have in mind. We'll answer any questions and let you know if we're available.
