Diddly Squat band!

Frenetic rhythms, rousing harmonies, and infectious camaraderie...

Amazing experiences can come from knowing "diddly squat" and doing it anyway.

We're a bunch of friends who got together to make some noise & have a bit of fun. We knew "diddly squat" about music but reckoned we'd do it anyway, because it looked like a hoot.

Turns out, it's been a really big hoot and we're having an amazing ride and love sharing the joy.

 Thank you to all the folk who've supported & egged us on!

Diddly Squat band were featured as finalists in ABC’s EXHUMED competition for amateur bands, culminating in a TV series & live Grand Final performance at Rooty Hill RSL Sydney December 2013.

September 2014: Yikes, we're in business!

We now have a registered business name and can officially call ourselves 'diddly squat band".

That doesn't mean we'll be performing in pinstripe suits (we detest dry cleaning and ironing) but maybe we'll have a go at shining our shoes just a little bit..... 
hmmm then again, maybe not.
