Big Daddy

Biography

Big Daddy, a Los Angeles-based comedic pop group that emerged in 1983 in the Rhino Information label, focuses on performing Contemporary strikes in the varieties of 1950s and early-’60s rock & move. For instance, they scored a high 40 hit within the U.K. in 1985 by documenting Bruce Springsteen’s “Dance at night” as it can audio if sung by Pat Boone. The group’s true history is certainly shrouded in secret — they state to be the final great ’50s group also to have already been kidnapped by Laotian guerillas while engaging U.S. soldiers in Vietnam rather than rescued until 1983. By 1991, these were an octet offering four lead performers, Marty Kaniger (also electric guitar), Tom Lee (also electric guitar), Bob Wayne, and Don Raymond (also electric guitar), plus John Hatton (bass), Norman A. Norman (keyboards), Bob Sandman (reeds), and Damon DeGrignon (drums).
