  • Dad Bands: your definition.

    Ok, so I don't repeat my mistake about music stands on stage, I did a search on Dad Band Definition. I really didn't find a definition, just a lot of posts that throw the term around. In your eyes, what makes a dad band. Not dad band music, I read that thread. I'm talking about, what is it that when you walk into a bar and see a band, you go, "yep, Dad band." Is it the look, the age, the music, the crowd, all the above.

    I know I'm going to get flamed for this.

          It's when I look at one of the players and the first thing that comes to my mind is, "Wow. His wife lets him be in a band."

          Just kidding, kind of. Tim, you are not in a dad band, imo. To me, a dad band consists of guys who are just trying to get out of the house once in awhile and pretend they're 18 again. There's usually a certain air of amatuerism and show-boating in their playing. They could've just gone fishing, or boating, and they might be dressed the same either way. Your definitions may vary.

            Dad band is a group of guys that honed their skills in their teens through late 20's. They took several years off for carreer and family. Their kids are old enough and the dads have free time. They take their time getting ready to gig, and when they do, they bring higher quality gear across the board, and often a higher level of musicianship than the younger bands.

                The OP very much wants this to be a pejorative term.

                It would be great if everyone who posts would give some serious thought to this one word. . . .

                stereotype

                  So "Jazz band" (for example) is OK but "Dad bad" isn't?

                  IMO "Dad band" is a perfectly useful term and any "pejorative" sense is in the mind of the listener, which isn't the fault of the person who uses the term to briefly and concisely communicate a whole bunch of information about the look/showmanship, the song selection, and the crowd that one can expect at a typical performance of that band. Just like saying "jazz band" or "screamo band" or whatever.

                        You both know - or should know - that the OP intended the term to be pejorative. He said he expected to get flamed.

                        It's yet another example of ageism.

                        Thankfully gspointer turned it on it's head. I'm pretty sure he saw the same intent that I did.
