First Show of 2019

Come see us with DJ Soul Sister Saturday January 5th at Three Keys at the Ace Hotel in New Orleans! Start 2019 off the Right way!


I love Green Day. I think to myself sometimes, “What would Green Day do?” (#wwgdd) or “How would Billlie Joe handle this?” #wwbjd

After listening to one of our other fave’s (The Slackers) cover “Attitude” by The Misfits, we were inspired to give Welcome to Paradise some of our vibes. Stream our version here…video to follow!

Playing for Change

Daria & Graham will be playing as a duo at this year’s Playing for Change in New Orleans at Nola Brewery from noon-6pm. Check out more information on the show at project here:

Playing For Change Day New Orleans



This Summer,  we went into the camp Upturn Arts to present a Masterclass on steel pan, album artwork and learning to ROCK! Supporting Upturn Arts means supporting arts in the Nola community!

Daria & The Hip Drops has worked with us for the last few years as both a teaching artist and a guest artist through the Positive Vibrations Foundation Master Artist Series. Help them #TurnUpForUpturn in the final 36 hours of Double UP! #20Kin10Days. We are so close to reaching our goal which will be matched by Oscar J. Tolmas Charitable Trust and the Freeman Challenges. #ArtsForAll
