Some New Jersey dads met because their daughters go to school together. Then on a whim, they decided to form a band. They're becoming quite popular. By day these guys are just regular suburban dads with corporate jobs.
By night, Jim Marussich, Brian Marra, and Mark Ellis are Doghouse, a popular rock band based out of Ridgewood, New Jersey. The band formed about a year ago. Their first gig ever was on Father's Day, which was fitting considering that they all met through their young daughters.
Since then they've performed in front of several live audiences.
While these dads are clearly having a blast fulfilling their lifelong dreams they now hope, that by their example, their daughters will do the same.
The dads aren't quitting their day jobs just yet. But they do have several gigs lined up, so you just never know.
