Take three-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 six-piece band taking songs from both traditional and contemporary sources and making them their own. In the first year following the group’s founding, O Happy Dagger has headlined at the Lagunitas Tap Room & Beer Sanctuary in Petaluma and the annual Obtainium Cup on Mare Island, served as the closing act at Vallejo’s Waterfront Weekend, entertained at The Coal Shed for the 2015 Vallejo Open Studios, as well as playing a number of other gigs.
O Happy Dagger is Ron Baker (mandolin, guitar), Beth Eiess (vocals), Jay Hipps (vocals, guitar), Jeff Kingman (drums), Sean Kirkpatrick (guitar, vocals), and Ainsley Lindbergs (vocals). Our seventh 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!
