Come on in after The Umphreys Show for some Bad Dagger
Disco. Metal. House. These three words form the mission statement adopted by the dance powerhouse experience that is Bad Dagger. Bursting onto the scene in 2012, Bad Dagger was comprised of Cameron Reel (music production, synths and bass guitar) and Eddie Roodvoets (drums, samples, and triggers). This duo stunned and entertained audiences with there unique brand of Disco/Meta/House or Electrosexymetal, as their style has been called. Extremely danceable, this act has a tendency to switch gears without warning. This makes it possible to touch on a wide array of genres in each set. Bad Dagger makes use of this versatility with relentless passion and energy.
In the fall of 2016, Brice Jones (guitar) was added to the lineup. Never really knowing how a guitar player would fit in with their style, Cameron and Eddie were immediately floored by the element that Brice brings to the music. Brice’s instincts and artistic taste were spot on right away, adding a crucial ands melodic balance to the band. Although they have similar influences in music, each member has a unique taste and sensibility. This helps add to the evolution of the unique brand of music they have developed.

Established in earnest: 2012
Disco, Metal, House. The 3 words most commonly used to describe the aggressive and highly-energized audio/visual experience that is Bad Dagger. Since first coming on to the scene as a group in early 2012, these 2 dynamic and talented artists have impressed and entertained audiences with their creative and unique presentation of audio production and musical performance. Bad Dagger has appropriately been called less of a band, and more closely resembling “one instrument that takes multiple people to play.”
Based in Indianapolis, IN, Bad Dagger is currently comprised of 2 members. Cameron Reel provides live audio production (synths, basses, pads, leads via Ableton/ MacBook Pro) as well playing bass guitar. On drum set and sample pad, Eddie Roodvoets provides an intense and nonstop energy to the music. Extremely danceable and cinematic, this act has a tendency to switch gears without warning, making it possible to touch on a wide array of genres in each set. They make use of this versatility with relentless passion and vigor.
Their blend of musical genres is indeed unique. Nothing sounds like Bad Dagger. Monumental and sublime at times, then hard, dark and anchored at others. A typical Bad Dagger set is certainly wide in scope, touching on elements of Electro, House, Metal, Prog, Funk, Disco, and Big Beat. These elements and more combine in such a way that Bad Dagger leaves each audience member with a sense of having an experience rather than just having seen a concert.
Wyllys has been spinning since the age of 15 years old and has gained a knowledge of music that is prevalent in his sets, sometimes spanning 6hrs and beyond. Though he may spin nu disco, house, drum and bass, and all the inbetweens, he is deeply rooted in funk and soul at all times. He often mixes it up with a cast of incredible musicians to enforce the groove and improvise with the set. Having spent time on stage with Treasure Fingers, Gigamesh, Justin Martin, Cinnamon Chasers,and Paul Oakenfold to name a few, has only strengthened his ties to the community. His music has brought him to Bonnaroo, Mountain Jam, Summer Camp,Electric Forest, and many other festivals. Vibrant, energetic, and present on stage always, he is a must see for fans of true mixing.
