The Baddadz

Heading Into The Holidays

The last chance to see the Baddadz before Thanksgiving will be this coming weekend, as we will be taking Thanksgiving off to spend with family.

On Friday we’ll be in Virginia Beach at Froggie’s Cantina By The Bay. This is always a fun gig and we’re expecting a strong turnout this weekend, hope to see you there! We start at 8:30 on Friday.

On Saturday we’re in Virginia Beach for a second night, this time at Stan’s American Bistro starting at 8 PM. Stan’s is another great venue to see the Baddadz, and the perfect way to round off the weekend.


Back to Mario’s, Oysters Anyone?

It’s hard to believe, but the last time that The Baddadz played Mario’s it was still summer, kids were not back in school, and at least two of the Baddadz were actually younger!

We return to one of our favorite places, Mario’s in Portsmouth tonight at 8:30.

Tomorrow, we make our annual visit to the CE&H Oyster Roast. The Baddaz will be playing from 3-5 pm, peak shuckin’ hours! See the flyer below for more information:





The Baddadz return to Stan’s American Bistro (2476 Nimmo Pkwy #103, Virginia Beach, VA 23456) on Friday ready to do Halloween in style! The music starts at 8:00 and the costume party goes on all night, with no cover charge and a $100 cash prize for best costume.

Familiar Faces and Places




Fresh from two weeks off, we made our way back to The Barrel II in Portsmouth on Friday night. I hadn’t realized that it had been exactly two months since we had played there, and it really showed when many of our friends turned out and packed the place for us. What a great audience, too – not only loud and gracious with their applause, but even giving John Fautheree a well deserved standing O for his rendition of the classic Santana tune, “Europa”.

Fast forward to Saturday night, and we were back in Virginia Beach at Froggie’s Cantina.  Again,  a great audience of friends, and we met several new people that made it clear to us how much they enjoyed the band. It really was a great night, we’ll look forward to seeing everyone again when we return in November.
