Daddy Mac & the Flak is

click me Bucky McCann
Bucky was a composer and arranger, and the saxist for the 70's Nebraska / L.A. horn rock band, STRAIGHT. At the end of the decade, he landed back in Omaha to join the River City All-Stars (that Brian was already in.) In the 80's, he and long time friend and STRAIGHT cohort, Tim put together the Omaha dance band, ITCHY BROTHER, and had a good long run.
Bucky has always tried to keep an ear in the recording studio and has supervised many productions. In the 90's Bucky got the blues with his own band, The LONGSHOTS, David Barger and others. He has appeared in several "Playing With Fire" concerts, and once got to perform with the late, great Stevie Ray Vaughn.
Lately, he just got off of a three year ride with popular Omaha band, Peace, Love, Etc., and has added studio chops to recordings by Little Joe McCarthy, Dave Steen and Jailhouse Tattoo, and Rex Granite with Sara Benck.
Daddy Mac & the Flak came together in 2K. This is today's line up of this fine band. Good friends, all.

Tim plays drums and sings lead and background vocals. In Tim's own words; "About 1970 in Bellevue , Ne. (early high school years), started hanging with Bucky and feel Blessed to have shared countless musical and life adventures.
Bandmates, college room mates, friends for life. Joint and seperate projects for over 45 years now, Yikes!!
Bands along the way, Windsong, Straight, Mainstreet, Itchy Brother, McKenzie River Band,
the SingSingSwing Orchestra, and more.
Daddy Mac gives us a chance to feel that same thing in a group that got us all hooked when we were eighteen. To get the chance to do it with guys that have known each other that long is a stone groove. One wife, three kids, four grandkids and Papa's still a ComboRat!!"

David Cupak David Cupak
Like all the guys in the band, David has been around the block; and the country. His education took him to UNO where he studied guitar, music theory, and art. As with the other cats, he got started in the 70's with rock and soul bands, including Soul Steel.
In the 80's, he broadened into jazz and blues, while wading in the waters of teaching, composition, and recording. He was a driving force in the Omaha/Minneapolis based band, Shades and Danger, one of the favorites at the popular Dodge Street hang, Arthur's.
The 90's found him again with two top bands in town; the Mighty Jailbreakers, and later, Planet Boom (now Ekophonic.)
Yes folks, Dave has played it all, including a recent stint in country-rock with the Shaky Ground Band. Daddy Mac & the Flak is proud and fortunate to have with them this fine artist and all-round nice guy.

On Fender Bass, Brian has been one of Omaha's 1st call players for over 40 years. He's a musician capable of laying down the bass for any style of music. He has performed and recorded a wide variety of musical styles including Country Stars C.W. McCall and T.G. Shepard and Jazz Flutist Bradley Leighton and many local artists, numerous theater productions, countless Radio and TV jingles.
Brian played with the popular Omaha rock group the "River City All-Stars" and more recently has appeared with Pam and the Pearls, and Peace, Love, Etc.
He also played briefly with Dave in the Shades and Danger. He has substituted in many local bands including Itchy Brother, the Confidentals and The Mighty Jailbreakers.

Daddy Mac & the Flak has played clubs, blues festivals, biker keggers, weddings, big corporate parties, and smoky little bars. These guys have paid their dues, and the music shows it. Bucky has surrounded himself with three of the finest musicians Omaha has to offer.
Their unique blend of music, from requested rock and roll hits to groovin', soulful R & B with a little blues tossed in is sure to provide a high time of toe-tappin' ear candy.  Feels good, people!
