The Owl Acoustic lounge was standing room only for Edmonton country rock band the Denim Daddies, May 26.

They looked like they stepped right out of the mid-’70s as they worked through   some southern rock and country rock sounds including covers and a few originals.

While most band choose Copperhead Road when playing Steve Earle covers, the Denim Daddies opted for a great cover of an older Steve Earle track “Good Old Boys (Getting Tough)”

 They were a lot of fun and had a lot of energy as they played an assortment of country fried covers and some hot originals like “Shuffle Ditty“ which featured some harmonized lead guitar reminiscent of Thin Lizzy.


 Most people were waiting for the Garrys— three sisters, drummer Lenore Maier , guitarist Erica Maier and bassist Julie Maier  from Saskatoon and a lead guitar player.


 They sounded like a female fronted Sadies, which isn’t surprising as Dallas Smith produced their new album “ Get  Thee To A Nunnery,” which they were playing a lot from.


They played spooky ambient indie rock and psychedelic rock  and a touch of ’50s pop and doo wop and a little bit of surf rock with plenty of haunting three part vocal harmonies.
