6/18/2012 8:03:00 AM Big Daddy D brings blues, R&B to Sedona
Big Daddy D and the Dynamites is a five-piece, high-energy R&B band working the clubs and festivals of Arizona. Based in the mountain city of Prescott, the band has built a solid reputation for hard work and quality, delivering a strong catalog of original songs on top of a deep book of covers.
The band began in the '90s as the rhythm section for Freddie (Li'l Junior) Cisneros and The Leisure Kings, going independent in 1998. Years of hard work in the busy saloons of historic Whiskey Row refined the sound and proved out the original material. The band regularly performs throughout Northern Arizona and the Phoenix area.
In 2007 the Dynamites won the Arizona Blues Showdown and a place onstage at the annual International Blues Challenge in Memphis in 2008. They have performed at many larger events, including the Glendale Blues and Jazz Festival, Blues Blast, the Scottsdale series Sunday A'Fair, and the Bisbee Blues Festival.
Big Daddy D and the Dynamites have released four self-produced albums over the years, the latest being Down, Boy!
The band consists of Darryl Porras on guitar, Sonny Ryan on drums, Gary Regina on Sax, D Drew Hall on bass, and Steven Ayres on standup bass. Big Daddy D and the Dynamites will be performing at Sound Bites Grill in Uptown Sedona from 9 p.m. to midnight Saturday, June 23. Dinner and Dancing until midnight.
