The BIG! BOOM! DADDIES! are a high-energy, toe-tapping band out of Rhode Island and Massachusetts that bring all-out classic rock, Rockabilly, swing, and blues to the stage in grand style. This up-and-coming group has risen from the local-club scene to the stages of theaters and performance centers in meteoric fashion. The band features two Rhode Island Rock and Roll Hall of Fame connections in celebrated guitarist Billy G. Veader as a member of Steve Smith and the Nakeds and in drummer Scott Hien whose brother Randy Hien owned the legendary Living Room night clubs in RI. A unique blend of sound and style, the Big Boom Daddies bring their remarkable vibe to the hits of Brian Setzer, the Stray Cats, James Cotton, Chuck Berry, Elvis, The Rolling Stones, John Lee Hooker, Ray Charles, and many more.
