Wishing You All A Wonderful Thanksgiving


All of us from The Baddadz wanted to take a minute in the spirit of this holiday to say thank you to the many wonderful friends that we have made over the past year, to the owners and staff of the establishments all over Hampton Roads who have welcomed us into their places of business, to the families and loves in each of our lives who give so much in order for us to be able to do something we just love to do – Tammie Greene, Velma Bland, Kay McKee and Cathleen Sullivan.

We especially want to say thanks to Linda Christie for another year of devoting her time to help promote the band and for the wonderful job that she does taking photos and running our Facebook page.

Thanks also to Michael Iwanowski for some remarkable photos that he has contributed as well, and for being a fan and more importantly a friend.

To the many musicians who have graced our stages this past year – Vaughn Deel, Robbie House, Billy Etheridge, Mitch Barrett, Sandy Martin, Michael Justice, Joe and Cathy McEntire, Don Hamlett, Win Winslow, Luke Goodweed, Michael Justice, Tom Farley, Cam Head Peggy Debellis Bruce, Lee Boyd – all of you, and anyone that I have unintentionally omitted, brightened our stages wherever you graced them and we are very, very grateful for that.

To our friends and fans, you are simply the best, thank you so much for being a part of this. We wish you all a safe and happy holiday season. The Baddadz will return on December 5th at Mario’s in Portsmouth.


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.
