Thursday

Daddies Girls 

Daddys GirlDaddy’s Girl;  a toe-tapping, hip swinging covers band who aim to blast you with great tunes (we think) through the decades of music: and lets face it there is a lot of good stuff to get down to! We also like to stand out from the crowd, and choose the tunes that y'all know and love, but might not be on every other cover's bands set list. 

Fronted with a sprinkling of glitter and glamor; our female vocal duo can sure pack a  Diva Punch that'll have you rockin' in your shoes. Bringing a wealth of musical experience packed under their braces, don't be fooled into thinking that our super slic backline of ole’ boys can't rock out, after all their generation invented it.

Rock steady Terry Common from Kidderminster on bass. From Liverpool, the one and only, Mike Donnelly on drums and vocals. And from Halesowen with his own powerhouse style, Steve James on harmonica. The band continues to be more and more in demand as audiences dance away to their hypnotic grooves.
