Grand Dad Rock vs Dad Rock

14 May
My setlists always have a good mix of everything, depending on the age demographic of the audience.dad
CavernA few years back (2006) I started thinking that playing hits of the 90’s was “different” or unique. Now it’s 2014, and
i find that the tide has turned where 90’s music is now ‘Dad Rock’ and 60’s music is more or less “Grand Dad Rock”.
In April I had a gig per week which I surveyed requests from families vs single professionals. dad2Amazing, the families wanted hits from the 90’s and the single professionals wanted songs from 2002 – present. TweetThis gig was at the swanky Cavern Club in Toronto (no not Liverpool), where Dad Rock folks were tweeting away.
