My dad is bigger than your dad. Part soul funk juggernaut, part support group, part motorcycle gang, a simple idea born of friendship, beers and fatherhood has flourished and taken shape. The basic premise: a big band, big grooves, big boots... oh and you've got to be a dad to join.
The Bad Dad Orchestra comprises of 9 dads (and counting) who have played solid parts in the Launceston band scene for the past decade. Jimi Steele - Vocals Lee Mallinson - Guitar Luke Young - Drums Elliot Courtnage - Hammond/Vocals Carl Treasure - Guitar/Vocals Vince Walker - Bass Carl Bulow - Saxophone Chris Bonner - Trombone Shaun Dearing - Trumpet Together they've got hundreds of kids, hundreds of riffs and a big old bag of style and swagger. Shine up those dancing boots. It's big, it's bad and it's dad.
