Wed Happy Hour: The Blacktop Daddies
The Blacktop Daddies is a Rochester, NY based three-piece band that plays original songs and a wide variety of upbeat classic rock, blues, and swing covers. The band was formed shortly after Dave Gillis (guitar, vocals) and Charlie Freeman (bass) met at Bluebrick Recording Studios while working on a project with local Americana group The Redemption Center. They hooked up with veteran drummer Dana Gregory a short time later and the Blacktop Daddies was formed in 2011. Each member of the group brings a wealth of musical talents to the band honed from years of experience playing in the local music scene.
