Good friends can make for good bands and Daddy’$ Money does just that. Bill and Lori McKenzie, Troy Roark, Jack White and Chas Blythe all first met at the Jimmy’s Sub Shoppe open mic about 16 years ago while Angela Starr ran into the bunch at another open mic. They’ve remained comrades-in-music throughout the years, while performing in a variety of popular area bands such as Mr. Opporknockity, Tongue Puppets, Bob Katt and the Missing Lynx, LandSharks and the Emerald Underground. They jammed plenty in impromptu party situations, but never managed to all play in the same band at the same time. Even now the musicians play in other groups and configurations, but come together to make Daddy’$ Money a band of longtime friends playing for and having fun. With the uncommon combination of two female lead vocalists added to the experienced and versatile players, the potential song list on the well-traveled road of classic rock and r & b for this pop sextet is long and winding.
