Welcome

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….
           “D”
 
                     
      

A personal note from D, Ed, and Marc

What 20 years on the stage and road has taught us is; when you change a band member you change the band. We can't wait to share the new version of the Aggravators with you. We are still on track to release our 5th CD. We are changing our business model. There will be a limited number of signed CDs' available from now on. They will be sold as keepsakes. We offer our music on multiple digital platforms but, we will feature Spotify as our main platform. We will be highlighting each release with a video on our You Tube Channel "Poppa D TV. The videos are free but you would help us immensely with a Subscribe ,Follow ,and like of each video. Merch is sold at every show. If you want something with our Logo on it tell us. We will make it happen. We are also thinking of changing our logo. Our trusted Poppa D skull seems to have become dated. Any ideas? Hit us with your best shot here. I will shoot you a crisp $50.00 dollar bill if the band picks your art work. We hope to see you at one of our shows soon! Until then KEEP AGGRAVATING!!!!!!!

                                          D-Future

 Our 5th CD (yet to be named) is still in the works but realistically we are now looking at mid to late 2023.

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