Ham Jam House Concert

Sad Daddy

Sad Daddy /w Melissa Carper will play a fine acoustic concert on Tuesday, November 13th, at 7:00 PM.

Sad Daddy is the union of three Arkansas based musicians bringing their own unique styles and backgrounds together to form an original and diverse spin on old time folk, country blues, and swing music. Equally sharing singer and songwriting duties, their easy going, story telling performances grow from the roots of the old American south and showcase down-home front porch style music at it's finest.

Consisting of Melissa Carper on upright bass, Joe Sundell on banjo and harmonica, and Brian Martin on acoustic guitar, harmonica and kazoo, Sad Daddy was born in early 2010. In a matter of a few short months, the trio went from forming the band to recording an album to nonstop regional touring for the remainder of 2010. In 2011 Melissa and Joe decided to take their talents down to Austin, TX, where they soon started what has become three popular area bands. Melissa is a member of the Carper Family, Joe is a member of the Austin Steamers, and they both play together in the Show and Tellers. Brian stayed back in Arkansas and continued building upon his solo career around the region.

Since their humble beginnings, Sad Daddy has garnered an ever growing and loyal fan base. Due the hectic pace of the members' many projects, their opportunities to perform together are few and far between, but the dedication of those hungry fans and the natural chemistry of the band makes each and every show a “don't miss” magical performance.
