THE BAD DAD ORCHESTRA

A simple idea born of fatherhood, friendship and music has flourished and taken shape.

THE BAD DAD ORCHESTRA, formed in mid-2015 from a concept devised by the bands late guitarist Liam Guthrie, evolved quickly into a powerhouse combination of some of Tasmania’s premiere contemporary musicians.

A traditional line-up with; vocals, electric guitars, bass guitar, drum kit, Hammond organ & a 3-piece horn section (tenor sax, trumpet, trombone). Big grooves, snappy horn lines and catchy as hell vocals. Critics have likened THE BAD DAD ORCHESTRA to the classic sounds of Australian pub-rock with a modern twist, whilst others have named it a unique brand of soul.
