Groove Daddy

GROOVEDADDY are considered one of the premier bands in the Black Hills. Combining the funky, grooving original music of lead singer Tom Whillock’s previous project Toadstool Jamboree with a batch of brand new material, Groovedaddy also jams hard with hip alt/classic rock tunes, reggae jams, funk grooves, gospel and old school country styles. At a Groovedaddy show, you’ll hear tunes from artists such as Bob Dylan, Grateful Dead and Bob Marley to Guster, Weezer, Ben Harper and The RH Chili Peppers.

His is an undeniably blues based artist escalating into what All Music Guide calls “…a mixed bag of […]
