Daddy Cool will also reform for the night The Age Music Victoria Awards
Daddy Cool front man Ross Wilson said,“As you know, although we’re all four still working musicians, Daddy Cool reforms only for very special occasions. We do get offers to play now and then, but we don’t tour and we don’t need to. This is not only a prestigious award – it’s a fun thing, getting together with other musicians, people saying nice things about us and having a few free drinks at the end of the night. That sounds like fun and that appeals to us. Daddy Cool has always been about having fun.”
