My dad is bigger than your dad.

Part soul rock juggernaut, part support group, part motorcycle gang.

A simple idea born of friendship, beers and fatherhood has flourished and taken shape. The basic premise: a big band, big grooves, big boots… oh and you’ve got to be a dad to join.

The Bad Dad Orchestra comprises of 9 dads (and counting) who have played solid parts in the Launceston band scene for the past decade.

Together they’ve got hundreds of kids, hundreds of riffs and a big old bag of style and swagger.

Shine up those dancing boots. It’s big, it’s bad and it’s dad.
