Big Daddy Love (BDL) is no gentle string quartet and identifying a single genre is nearly impossible. All four members are comfortable playing almost any type of American music. Our sound has been described as “a blend of rock, bluegrass, southern soul, and psychedelic jams” that we have long referred to as “Appalachian Rock.”
The quartet has played well over a thousand shows across the country and has released four CDs—most recently Live at Ziggy’s and This Time Around. Along the way, we’ve played venues of all sizes from listening-room coffee houses to the 20,000 seat PNC Arena in Raleigh, NC. Big Daddy Love’s festival resume ranges from local favorites like The Big What to larger regional festivals such as Bristol Rhythm & Roots and the premier southeastern festival, FloydFest.
