Dad Hats and Khaki Pants Article Count: 0
Dad Hats & Khaki Pants (a nod to the stereotypical attire of one who listens to Pop Punk & Emo music) is the brainchild of Kevin Caldwell, a local DJ who has been a part of the Rogue Valley music scene in various capacities (most notably booking shows) for over 10 years.
In the time that Kevin has spent behind the scenes he has a gained a unique perspective & ear for quality music. Throughout the years Kevin has been exposed to many genres of music but maintains a particular affinity for all decades of the Pop Punk & “Emo” scene, he feels that those styles just have a certain way of bringing out the type of emotional response that can on one hand lead you to an existential breakdown & on the other help you fight through some of the toughest moments life can throw at you.
It's Kevin’s hope that in sharing these songs spanning from the 80s/90s/00s/Today that you can take away some of the same feelings that they have brought him over the years while at the same time introducing you to some bands you might not have ever known about in the “mainstream” world of music.

Tune in Saturdays from 4 - 6 pm.
