Sunday October 16 Diddly Squat
Amazing experiences come from knowing “diddly squat” and doing it anyway.
Diddly Squat are an “all-girl” band of friends who got together in 2009 “to have fun &
make some noise”.
Despite knowing “diddly squat” about music, they decided to have a go anyway, and
have been spreading the joy ever since.
Their repertoire includes an eclectic mix of “folk-rock” including old favourites from
the 1960’s – 1990’s with a sprinkling of originals, and lashings of fun.
Diddly Squat were featured as finalists on the ABC EXHUMED TV series 2013. They
have enjoyed performances at QPAC Green Jam, Redfest, Peaks to Points Festivals,
LGBTIQ Over 50’s Expos, IndigiDayOut, Karuna & Wynnum Markets, and on ABC
Their single “All So Ordinary”, penned by late band member Kathy Ridgway was
released in 2017.
