– Marginal entry, mainly Progressive Rock but with NWOBHM influences and connections
– Toured regularly between 1975-76. A car crash injured all the band members and damaged their gear and as a result they were inactive until 1979. Dagaband continued to tour all across the country and also supported bands such as Marillion, Budgie, Mendes Prey, Demon and more.
– Split up in 1987 and reformed for a one-off gig in 1993 and then again in 2010.
– Dagaband had an album on the works in 1986 but it was shelved for nearly two and a half decades. In 2010 founder member Greg Boynton would start working on it’s release but sadly he passed away…
