THE BIG DADDY LIVE SHOW IS BACK!

On the heels of “Smashing Songs of Stage & Screen,” their first album in nearly 15 years, “Big Daddy, The Band of ‘59” is back. Their Coffee Gallery show on Sunday, 12-20-15 at 7pm will be the band’s first live performance since the mid- 90’s!

From 1983 to 1994, Big Daddy roamed the Rock & Roll landscape foraging for the hit songs of the day, plucking them from the charts, chewing them up, digesting them and then spitting them back out, never to sound the same. Though the lyrics and melodies were virtually unchanged, the songs sounded as if they had been written and recorded in the golden age of Rock & Roll…the 1950’s

Today, this type of song reworking is called a “Mash Up” and Big Daddy is now credited as The Mash Up Kings of Rockabilly, DooWop, R & B, & Pop…if it’s from the 50’s, Big Daddy is all over it. Randy Lewis, L.A. Times Music Journalist, said it best in his 2012 L.A. Times article on the band: “More than a gimmick, Big Daddy created new takes on Pop and Rock songs that were consistently inspired, illuminating and often hilarious.” -L.A. Times, 10-4-12.

Join Big Daddy and help them spread their joyful irreverence… Altadena is the first stop on a new chapter of the journey. Don’t miss it! The Coffee Gallery, 2029 North Lake St., Altadena CA 91001 Reservation line: 626-798-6236 (10am – 10pm) http://www.coffeegallery.com/home.html
