Dady Brothers quotes from press and individuals

City Newspaper Rochester NY Chuck Cuminale 1991
“ The Dady Brothers are a local treasure, a Flower City institution, and two of the best musicians you’re likely to hear.
They’ve been around for years, playing music clubs, resorts, outdoor festivals, and coffeehouses. They’re equally adept at playing folk, country, rock and roll or Irish music. Wherever and whenever they play they bring with them a professionalism, integrity and musical ability that’s rare on the local scene.”

The Leader State College Fredonia, NY John Affleck 4/1/96
“Drawing from a seemingly endless well of energy the Dady Brothers poured forth two of the purest sets of Folk music.
John Dady has sparkling and distinctive voice is joined by his brother and “best friend”, Joe who played a possessed fiddle and (sic) flailed merrily on his banjo.”

Limerick Press Ireland Limerick Music and Magic Expo 5/97
“Over the last twenty years or more, The Dady Brothers from Rochester NY, have been playing folk- roots music and bringing it in an authentic and enjoyable way to audiences around the world.”

The Island Reporter Sanibel Island Florida 3/13/86
“The Dady Brothers, are pair of Yankees with enough Irish Soul to cause an epidemic of smiles”

The Boston Globe Jeff McLaughlin 1990
“The list of musical instruments the Dady Brothers command is as long as Kevin McHale’s arm”

The Southern Star and Cork Chronicle Cork Ireland 1995

Press and Sun- Bulletin Binghamton, NY 11/18/99
“If you want the real deal in Irish music, these are the brothers to do it all”

City Newspaper Rochester NY 1/4/2000 CD review by Rob Cullivan
“At this point in their career, Rochester’s Dady Brothers seem incapable of producing anything but quality folk, traditional, and Irish music. Singing from the Heart is a beautiful tribute to the music the boys find most moving, from Dixieland to Celtic. This is great mix of modern sounds and old-fashioned musical integrity.”

The Savannah Irish Festival Program Savannah, Georgia
“The Dady Brothers have been a mainstay of the Savannah Irish Festival for many years. Their outstanding performances onstage, coupled with their wonderful outgoing personalities make them one of the favorite groups from past festivals” Talent runs deep in this family; between the two of them, you won’t find an instrument they can’t play.”

Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts
“Joe and John Dady consistently win praise for their musicianship and presentation. Their style blends fiddle, mandolin, whistle, guitar, bodhran, banjo, harmonica and uilleann pipes to deliver a superb fusion of Irish and American roots music.”

Dunkirk Observer Matt Surtel 3/14/99
“John and Joe Dady are possibly the best purveyors of Irish music. They performed their distinctive mix of folk, Irish and bluegrass to a crowed and enthusiastic room at the Fredonia Opera House.”

City Newspaper Chuck Cuminale 11/99
” The Dady Brothers occupy a unique position in the Rochester music scene. They have a fan base that transcends generations, and seem to please all members of this age diverse group simultaneously.”

Landmark Society Rochester NY 2000
“Songs of the Erie Canal” 2000,
“The Dady Brothers, Rochester’s world famous Irish duo, and their musicians, perform a tuneful variety of historic songs on this extraordinary CD.”

Tommy Makem 1991 “The Dady Brothers have it all, Taste to select good materiel; talent to perform that music excellently, to the delight of their audiences; and the dedication to keep their materiel and performances to the highest standards.”

Simon Pontin Senior Producer WXXI-FM Rochester NY
“When you think of Irish Music, you think of the Dady Brothers. For over thirty years the brothers have devoted their lives to music and have become the preeminent folk group in Rochester.”

Mitzie Collins hammered dulcimer virtuoso, record producer and folk music legend
“The Dady Brothers bring genuineness and honest, as well as humor and virtuosity to their performances-whether for a festival crowd or a classroom. They love folk music and love to perform. Their song repertoire ranges from historic ballads to the most recently composed.”

Emo Phillips Comedian
“Do you guys know any Klezmer?”

Rick Dougherty of the The Kingston Trio 2007
“The Dady Brothers have wonderful instrumental work and harmonies.
The variety of music they play including guitar, mandolin, violin, bodhran and octave mandolin gives their music a lot of texture and their humor is truly delightful. They’re fine musicians and the nicest couple of guys you’d want to be stuck in an airport with.”

“Sing Out!” Magazine Volume 44 Michael Parrish (CD review)
“The Dady Brothers are strong singers in the Irish ballad tradition as well as good pickers, they have attracted some impressive guests, notably Tommy and Rory Makem, and dobroist Kevin Maul. The pair aren’t afraid to embellish their roots music with creative instrumental touches. A highlight is “The Man with the Banjo” their stirring and affectionate tribute to Pete Seeger.”

My Most Important Day (school paper by Ryan Nation)
“My most important day was when I played my violin with the Dady Brothers”

Liam Clancy “We were waiting to go on-stage when we heard what we thought was a locomotive roaring through the hotel.”

Mark Cuddy Artistic Director Geva Theatre Center
“What they bring to “Quilters” and our band is immediate authenticity of Folk musicians, you can hear their music in the background like it’s Ken Burns. They
bring that great medium of stories and telling of stories through pieces of music rather than just expressing a feeling.”

Frank Emerson Folk Singer “Between them, Joe and John play eight instruments and are about as talented as they come with a variety of music style from traditional Irish to Rock.”

Simon Pontin Senior Producer WXXI-FM Rochester NY
“When you think of Irish Music, you think of the Dady Brothers. For over thirty years the brothers have devoted their lives to music and have become the preeminent folk group in Rochester.”

Jane Fonda

Bat McGrath Songwriter Nashville TN
“They’re one of the best acoustic acts I’ve seen.”
Will Millar Irish Rovers

Rick Danko of The legendary The Band 1980
“You guys weren’t just my opening act you were a part of my show. I want you to
be in my movie!”

City Newspaper Frank DeBlase 3/08
“Whether it’s Wednesday night crowd at Johnny’s, kids clapping and singing along at a school performance, or crowds in Ireland, where the Dadys tour annually, the accessibility and appeal of their Irish folk is undeniable and immense. They have mastered Irish music’s deceptive simplicity and charm.”
