“The band must have spent some Electric Nights in Clayton Park, the famed Thrush Hermit and Joel Plaskett hang-out spot for drunk teenagers. The new material has the rough and ready heart of 90s Halifax.” – slowcity.ca
“With a sound like a modern take on Led Zeppelin, The Stooges or Black Sabbath, the tunes from these Ontario rockers burn on alcohol and rock alone to create a fusion of everything you want and cutting out the filler.” – theindiemachine.com
“The Do Good Badlies perform a high energy style of rock that is sure to get anyone moving. They combine the sounds of garage rock with the melodies and folk sounds of indie to create a unique and beautiful sound.” – Justin Lam, Antidote Magazine, 2015
It is something that has been in the works a long time, but something completely new. Brothers Daniel and Jon Greer had been traveling and playing for years, but the new line-up featuring vocalist Cassie Noble changed everything. She can be beautifully smooth but at times have a Janis Joplin style rasp. Her vocals and acoustic guitar playing are the perfect contrast to the gritty rock and roll style the boys brought to the table. The sound is filled out with the harmonies, drums, and percussion of Jamie Robinson and Steve Jackett.
Upon creating this new project the group launched a cross-Canada online contest to find a more fitting name. Shortly after they released “Electric Nights”, the bands debut album as “The Do Good Badlies”. The band is based in Lindsay, Ontario with a strong connection to the thriving Toronto music scene.
