Rochester based band, Badtude has been getting some pretty impressive gigs in the last year or so. Opening for Lynard Skynard at the Bank of NH Pavilion. Kings X, Trapt, Puddle of Mud and now add Dokken to the list at the Granite State Music Hall.
Frank McDaniel, vocalist and ultra talented lead guitarist of Badtude told CC, "People gave us a chance to play on a big stage and we delivered. So I guess that's why were getting better gigs now. We worked hard to write tunes we like and to be tight as a band." McDaniel added "Special thanks to Burnie Goulet for giving us the gig with Dokken."
It is great to see a hard working band move beyond the local area and get recognition on a larger scale. Keep up the good work guys you rock! 🤟🏼
