Diamond Dave and the Doo-Daddies.


Hailing from Perth, Western Australia, Diamond Dave and the Doodaddies are a four-piece Chicago-style blues band featuring the red-hot guitar chops of Dave Brewer and the sensational harmonica playing of 'Diamond' Dave Billing, propelled by the shufflemaster himself Yugon Chobanoff and the driving bass of John Wilson.

'Diamond' Dave masterfully demonstrates a full understanding of the many styles of the harmonica - from the expressive acoustic approach to the 'driving' amplified style. Using the chromatic harmonica, Dave has developed one of the most distinctive styles heard in Australia - such a great tone with ideas to match!

Dave spent the late 1980s and most of the '90s performing with his band The Mighty Mudcats. In 2000, the Mudcats changed their name and introduced new members, including Dave Brewer who had recently returned to live in Perth. Dave Brewer played with the Elks in the late '70s and shifted base from Perth to Sydney touring up and down the east coast.

In 1982, the Elks disbanded and Brewer stayed on in Sydney, forming a lasting musical partnership with harmonica/ vocalist 'Continental' Robert Susz. Brewer joined his soul/Rhythm and Blues band The Dynamic Hypnotics as well as the Mighty Reapers during the 90s.

The Doodaddies cover a solid selection of uplifting grooves including swinging shuffles, soul, boogaloo, 'cry in your beer' blues and more. With a number of live shows and CD releases, the Doodaddies prove that the roots of the blues are not only strong and far-reaching, but that the future of the blues is bright! If you love gutsy, emotive, danceable music, played with originality and virtuosity - check them out.
