Diddy Wah Daddies
The Diddy Wah Daddies is a musical project by Edley Jones and Barry Cockrell, lifelong friends who grew up in Vicksburg. For anyone who has seen the ‘Blues Brothers,” you will appreciate the idea of “getting the band back together,” as Edley and Barry first played in a band in junior high school. Diddy Wah Daddies is a joyous, and overdue, reunion. However, our only mission is to have a good time! Several genres of music will be interpreted for the performance, along with several original songs written by Edley. Please come join us at The Pig & Pint! All tips will be credited to The Fondren Renaissance Foundation.
