Daddy's Rocks Grand Opening
Daddy's Junky Music in Dedham, Mass., recently moved to a 7,500-square-foot location. The former 4,000-square-foot Dedham space had been the store's home for the past 19 years.
The new location, which boasts Daddy's first-ever performance area complete with staging and seating, was the main site of Daddy's grand-opening weekend. Events included meet-and-greets with Godsmack frontman, Sully Erna, and The Ramones' drummer, Marky Ramone.
Hundreds turned out to get their photo taken with Erna and his solo band. Erna also signed copies of his debut solo release, Avalon.
"Sully and I have been friends for over 20 years," said Candi Bramante, Daddy's promotions director. "So, when we decided we wanted to do some meet-and-greets during our grand opening weekend, it was a no brainer. We were very fortunate that he took the time to celebrate with us."
Ramone also partook in a fundraising dinner in conjunction with Daddy's to benefit Autism Speaks, an organization dedicated to funding research for Autism. The catered dinner was held inside the performance area of Daddy's new location. Attendees were served a dinner that featured Ramone's new pasta sauce, "Brooklyn's Own."
