Mind the Gap are a group of dads based in New Canaan, Connecticut who came together through a shared love of classic rock and roll. They have been playing together since 2015, but are not your standard covers band who run through a predictable set of songs. They turn every performance into a party and are guaranteed to blow the roof off and get the place rocking. 

They offer a versatile experience - you can book them, or go and see them, play a regular set like any other band does. However, unlike other bands, they will to deliver a SHOW that will create a never-to-be-forgotten experience. They can dress up as an 80's hair band, don dark suits and ties, or wear Christmas costumes - anything you want - The band will work with you to deliver a bespoke package to make your event unique, but more importantly - to make it ROCK!

For the ultimate party experience you can book them as your own personal rocking house band, and they will provide live backing for your guests / employees / friends to perform Rockaoke.

This is not your standard Karaoke with cheesy backing tracks and bouncing ball lyric prompts - Rockaoke gives people the chance to live out their rock star fantasies by fronting a real live band who will make you feel like you are Mercury, Tyler, Jagger or Bowie.

Get up and sing on your own, or grab some friends and gain strength in numbers - the aim is to have fun, shed your inhibitions and rock out! We provide lyric sheets, moral support, help and encouragement - check out the Rockaoke page for more information.


Mind the Gap rocked Waveny Veranda for our Summer Party on Memorial Day Weekend! The music was superb and we were especially excited to have 4 New Canaan Dads playing for us! I highly recommend them for your next event - big or small!

Mind the Gap turned our annual Christmas Party - fun but sedate - into a wild concert in our living room!

The band were fabulous - encouraging many guests to unleash their inner Rock Star...including ME - who swore ‘never in a million years’ would I ever sing in public!

I would recommend Mind the Gap to anyone wanting to host the party of a lifetime!

We have partnered with Treasure Hunt Tours - who offer one-of-a-kind parties! These hyper-local hunts are not just about answering questions, they want teams to find hidden objects, meet special characters, and discover landmarks in their towns they didn’t know existed! We provide the live entertainment.
