Year after Year.  Following Thousands of Miles and Hundreds of Gallons of Whisky, Four CD's and an International Following:
“POPPA”D” AND THE AGGRAVATORS  have established themselves as the keeper of the flame of MODERN BLUES-ROCK.  The Common barriers facing a band of musicians doing the unconventional have been removed.  What is left is a Fun, Zesty Music we call D - BLUES!  Forget what you know about Blues Rock Bands.  We take elements from other popular Musical platforms to create a fresh approach.  So, there are no more excuses to not LOVE D-BLUES!   This website is designed to keep you on the cutting edge of all things "D"!   We will post concert dates, new videos and give you the chance to grab the latest sounds and fashions generated by The Aggravators! 
Feel free to contact us anytime .  You can request a Booking, suggest a venue or just say HI! so, strap in and come back often.  We update daily.   Greetings from POPPA “D” AND THE AGGRAVATORS,  Sit back and ENJOY THE WEBSITE!

We Thank You….
                      MOVING FORWARD!

2020 will bring some very exciting things but first let’s discuss the Bass player in the room. Our long time Bassist, Friend, and Guide to the VIBE Donald “BIP” Williams had to depart the band due to personal responsibilities. We are sad to see him go and he will always be an Aggravator.  We send all our love with  BIP. Please join us in sending him THE GOOD VIBES!

Michael Murphy joins us. Let’s be clear Michael is not a replacement but, rather an addition. The hole BIP left us is the size of the Grand Canyon, and frankly we didn’t want to find a clone. We were looking towards our future, and what we would need down the road. Michael’s skill set is vast. He brings backing vocals, expert soundscaping, and we swear he has near perfect pitch. He has already proven to be an invaluable addition to the Aggravators as we prepare for our 2020 CD release.


We will release our 5th CD (yet to be named). We are adding Sandusky to our rotation so way-out Westsiders keep a look out. We are anticipating tour stops in Kansas, North Carolina, Alabama, and Florida. There is also discussions of a visit to the Minnesota State Fair. (MN is the Birthplace of Poppa D)

 Poppa D will be returning to “The Designated Drinkers” Podcast. Karlo and the gang are feverish Poppa D fans and it’s always a pleasure to tip some beers with them.

Our YouTube Page (Poppa D-TV) is up and running. D will post a rig rundown in the near future. There are always a line of guitar pickers at the shows trying to get a glimpse of D’s pedal set-up.

We always got things brewing so come back when you can for the D-News on Poppa D And The Aggravators
