Daphne Don’t Float are a 3-piece pop and rock covers band playing an infectious brand of “bare-knuckle” pop music with incredible energy and powerful vocal harmonies.
Daphne Don’t Float is one of the freshest acts on the scene. If you’re tired of hearing pub bands playing the same old songs, then they’re the band for you.
....... and why are we called "Daphne"?
It’s really difficult to come up with a band name. Finding one that nobody else has ever used is even more tricky. You also need to pick a name which describes the feel of the band.
We met an attractive lady of a certain age at one of our gigs recently who was worried that we had come up with the name while accidentally drowning a family pet. That was kinda cool, but not true.
What really happened was ……….one day, while mulling over the band name issue, we were talking to an ex band mate who was describing a family barbeque he’d just been to. His niece had dolls of the whole cast of Scooby Doo and threw them all in the paddling pool. They all floated on the top – apart from one. She pointed and shouted to uncle – “look, Daphne Don’t Float”. And so, thanks to the Lord and poor standards of education, a band name was born.
