Instructors

  • Timothy Gibbs Zehnder

    Twin brothers Timothy “Mack” Gibbs Zehnder and Tom “Johnny” Zehnder with drummer Mike “Bax” Boggio formed Double Batch Daddy in the 20-teens, earning a spot on LA Arts & Culture’s Musicians Roster. They meld sunny folk-pop with 1920s birth-of-jazz spirit. The band’s eclectic style—acoustic pop, folk, and jazz with traces of world beat—and heartfelt songwriting are a tribute to the brothers’ father, the late John Zehnder, folk legend of McCabe’s Guitar Shop. On DBD’s debut recordings, they explore a middle ground between upbeat, vintage charm and serious substance. Through thoughtful lyrics, inventive genre mash-ups, and dynamic live performances, Double Batch Daddy brings people together to embrace their shared humanity. Exuding unabashed joy and a deep reverence for their craft, they make music reflecting their bedrock values of acceptance, tolerance, and love.
