It started as a way to bring music into their kids’ daycare. Ten years later, after playing everywhere from elementary schools to local bars and restaurants to a cornfield, Dad Band is one of the driving forces behind the Delaney Chevrolet Westsylvania Jazz & Blues Festival.
Dad Band is a quintet of, yes, dads. They still play for kids, performing at elementary schools and charitable events throughout Indiana County. But they’ve also picked up an adult following, playing regular shows at The Coventry Inn. Their repertoire extends from from hard bop and soul jazz to classics by Basie, Davis, and Ellington. You’ll Like that Dad Band sound, but no, you can’t borrow the car.
Dad Band is Stuart Chandler, Drums; Dave Ferguson, Bass; Corbin Krug, Piano; Mike Powers, Saxophone; and Ken Sherwood, Trumpet.
