It’s an obsession for playing shows energized with tight, controlled sound & crisp, clean vocals that get people up & moving to infectious rock grooves – most of all, we hope every person at our shows just has a rockin’ good time!
Ron Randolph (guitars/backing vocals) felt music’s pull watching his uncles play blues guitar at age 8. While serving in the navy, he turned to the guitar to help pass the time and began honing his craft. Younger brother Jeremy Randolph (drums/percussion) followed Ron and began playing in jr. high where he and lifelong friend Josh Lindblom (lead vocals/guitar), formed various bands. Their brief project ‘White Men Can’t Funk’ was formed when Ron returned home form the navy. Life, marriage, kids, schooling & work pulled the 3 apart for several years: Ron sought a medical education with the army, Jeremy moved to Florida and Josh ended up singing in a Los Angeles-based band. Returning to Santa Maria, they worked to form a new band, defining their core sound at countless practices. They took things public in late 2012 playing & hosting open mic performances. Chuck Kossuth (bass/backing vocals) joined the group after 6+ years with a local favorite group: StillEvolving. He brought a handful of classic songs, mixing experience and a working knowledge of how to fast-track the project into the ranks of professional, working local bands. So which member is Joe Daddy? A lifelong friend (nicknamed ‘Joe Daddy’) had constantly encouraged them to play public shows, but tragically died in a car accident early 2012. Never seeing it come to fruition, they are named as a tribute to their biggest fan.
Collectively, the band is influenced by Led Zepplin, Tom Petty, The Black Keys/Jack White, Pearl Jam, Weezer, INXS, Matchbox 20 and Toad The Wet Sprocket plus countless other bands from the ‘80s and ‘90s.
Joe Daddy is hard at work, crafting new original compositions to work into their diverse set lists and continuing to strive for exceptional live performances that crowds connect with.
