Founded in 2002, The Doo-Dads, a kid-cool rock and roll band, is the brainchild of four friends and well-known veterans of the Kansas City music scene -Mike Niewald (guitar/vocals), Matt Kesler (bass/vocals), Ken Lovern, (keyboard/vocals), and Joe Gose, (drums/vocals). Before becoming parents themselves and launching The Doo-Dads, all played professionally for bands such as The Pedal Jets, The Bindlestiffs, Absolute Ceiling, The L.A. Ramblers and The Saddlemen. Now the "dads who do music" balance work, play and parenting just like most dads. But these dads try not to take themselves too seriously. By sticking close to their kids (affectionately called "The Doo-Drops"), seeing the humor in the everyday, and making really great music, the foursome have invented a new formula for rockin' family fun. The music mixes rockabilly, blues, country and high-energy rock and roll with a unique sense of humor that adults in the trenches of parenting can really appreciate. The music has a jumpin', hoppin', rockin' energy that literally moves kids. Best of all, it's music with it's heart in the right place.
