“Nothing worth having comes without some kind of fight. Got to kick at the darkness 'til it bleeds daylight”
— Bruce Cockburn
BetterDucks at a glance
Forged through iterations of original bands in Berlin, Germany, BetterDucks are an Indie Alt Rock band fronted by German born vocalist, guitarist and songwriter Dirk Externest. Dirk is backed by stalwart Philly area musicians Nick Voutsakis (guitar and backing vocals), Mark Betterly (bass), and James Evans (drums and backing vocals). This is a musical exposé of the times, from the wide open to the intimate, with a bit of alt and vintage imagery. BetterDucks are headlining locally and opening for national touring bands at some of the area's most intimate music venues.
