Farewell 2014!

The Baddadz will be finishing up our year with two gigs this coming weekend. On Friday┬ánight we’ll be in Portsmouth at The Barrel II, and then we’ll wrap things up on Saturday at Stan’s Bistro in Virginia Beach on Saturday. We’re off after that until January 2, 2015 when we kick off the new year in style at Mario’s in Portsmouth.

We would love to see as many of you as possible as we head into this holiday season!

And, here we are.


If you’re seeing this, then you have found us at our new home on the interwebs. Moving this has been a B_ _ _ _! As you can tell by looking up top, the logo isn’t centered (FIXED!), for about an hour tonight the calendar was just AWOL…who knows what else I’ll find?!

No worries. All that matters is that The Baddadz will be at Froggie’s on Friday night (with even more new music!) starting at 8:30pm. Hope to see all of you there!


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:
