Lemon Squeezin' Daddies (NSW)
In a few short years, the Lemon Squeezin Daddies established themselves as one of the premier blues bands in Sydney. A strength of the Daddies has long been their live performances and in former lead singer Stephen Garry, they had one of the best front men in the business. Always entertaining, he was ably aided and abetted in his on-stage antics by fellow Lemon Squeezin Daddies: Jonathan Simpkins (guitar), Ian Hollister (blues harp & chromatic harmonica), Peter ONeill (upright and electric basses) and Robert Floyd (drums).
In 2009 the Daddies gained their most recent member: Pearl Noire. Pearl replaced Steve Garry when he decided to take a break from music after almost a decade fronting the band.
The Daddies have a larger than life sense of humour and fun and it shows on stage. Having featured at festivals throughout Australia, the Daddies invite an audience to enjoy themselves, an invitation that remains open from the first song right through to the last.
The National Festival of Australian Blues Music is like a home away from home for the Lemon Squeezin' Daddies. They won the inaugural 'Busking the Blues' competition, were nominated for an Australian Blues Music 'Chain' Award in 2003 and this year (2006) will be their 5th performance at the Festival.
