Shirley Jackson & Her Good Rockin’ Daddys fuel the dance floor with a mix of horn-powered west coast blues and swinging sounds. The Good Rockin’ Daddys hail to a sound inspired by the early years of Rock & Roll when horn sections were an integral part of the sound of swinging and rocking tunes. Bringing a little of that west coast sound to the east coast of Nova Scotia.
'Careful What You Ask For' was nominated for an East Coast Music Award for Blues Recording of the Year in 2003, and features some great musicians from the Halifax, music scene.

"Shirley Jackson & Her Good Rockin' Daddys, who hail from Halifax down on Canada's east coast, the release of "Careful What You Ask For" ought to significantly expand their local reputation as a first-rate ensemble, easily the equal of most on the scene."
