The Good Rockin' Daddys

Shirley Jackson & Her Good Rockin’ Daddys have been fuelling the dance floor with a mix of horn-powered east coast blues. The Good Rockin’ Daddys hail to a sound inspired by the early years of Rock & Roll when horn sections were an integral part of the sound of a swingin' and rockin’ good time and their music is stylized by Jackson's own song writing and arranging.

The band is comprised of: Shirley Jackson on vocals and tenor saxophone; her son, Jef Wirchenko, on bass; Tom Crilley on guitar; Gary Potts on drums.; Dawn Hatfield on baritone saxophone, and Dave Harrison on trumpet.

“Bold and brassy horns pump for all they're worth. Nimble guitar picking is never a bad thing, and enjoys robust collaboration from a bass/drums team that knows well its lively duty. But it is Shirley's own knowing voice that rides atop, guiding toward a straight-up coolness.”
