Take four-part harmonies, a pinch of folk, a dash of bluegrass, and a dollop of rock ‘n’ roll, mix well, and you have O Happy Dagger, a seven-piece band taking songs from both traditional and contemporary sources and making them their own. In the two years since the group’s founding, O Happy Dagger has appeared throughout the North Bay bringing their own brand of Americana — which they have dubbed “Heavy Mellow” — to a growing fan base.
O Happy Dagger is Ron Baker (mandolin, guitar), Beth Eiess (vocals), Jay Hipps (vocals, guitar), Jeff Kingman (drums), Sean Kirkpatrick (guitar, vocals), Ainsley Lindbergs (vocals, percussion), and Lynda Zwack (bass). Our eighth member is soundman Marty Kulmus. With lead vocals shifting between four members and new musical ideas coming from everyone involved, the band is truly an example of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.
O Happy Dagger is available for events ranging from backyard house parties to full-fledged concerts. We provide turnkey service, complete with a professional sound system and a skilled technical staff.
You provide electricity and a place to play and we bring the rest!
