There are a lot of good bands out there, but there is something unique when the band authentically loves what they do, and who they do it with! The Dads Band is a group of live performance veterans featuring former members of Cain's Alibi, Mace, The Shaw Band and Crosstown Traffic. The Dads not only bring the musical chops, but a rare energy and rock and roll edge that creates a huge in your face sound. Unlike other bands, we don't play all the time, so when we do - its an event! We play because its fun and we love making music together - and that no BS attitude and focus on entertaining the audience comes through in every show! The Dads band brings the goods whether its a club or large festival/event, we always leave the crowd wanting more!
