Update : I’ve since left the band, a year ago. WDD are still playing in pubs round Singapore.
I’ve been singing in a cover band called Whack Daddy Down since 2001. I have never had any formal vocal training and believe me, in the early years that was pretty obvious! We are great friends, I love the guys in the band, they are like family. We probably play once a month in a pub here in Singapore. We don’t do it for the money (as there is none!) but we do it because we love it!
Our set list include songs by Adele, Rolling Stones, Katy Perry, Guns & Roses, Led Zep, AC/DC, Bruno Mars, Jason Mraz, Maroon 5, Aerosmith, Beatles, Elvis. As you can see it spans decades and is a mix of pop & rock.
I’ve got to figure out now when it’s “un-cool” for me to still sing in the band! As women (who are the frontmen) age, you have to wonder when it’s not very cool to sing Sweet Child O’ Mine whilst standing on the bar top right? So far I’m still doing it, and loving it.
So we’ll just have to wait and see!
