Dad Patrol is the creative funnel of three best friends who have known each other since kindergarten and who have been writing music together since starting high school. Currently based out of Fredericton, New Brunswick; Gregor Dobson, Zach Pelletier, and Jonny Marino blend a mix of indie rock and pop-punk influences to write catchy songs wrapped in distorted guitars and hard-hitting drums.
In 2018, Gregor and Zach wrote the first Dad Patrol single “Butterflies & Knife Fights” in their university dorm room. Shortly after writing the song, the project was put on hold for nearly a year when Gregor dropped out of art school and left Fredericton. The project was revived when Gregor returned to the city in 2019 along with Jonny who already had a long history playing in bands with Gregor and Zach throughout high school. The boys got to work immediately on recording and writing new songs and released their debut EP, “Dad Jokes”, in February of 2020.
Currently, the band is hard at work writing and recording their second EP, set to release in the summer of 2020, as well as releasing fun little one-off singles such as “Quarantine Song” and “Realistically”.
