The Mom and Dads were a musical group that gained popularity in the 1960s and 1970s. The band was formed in Spokane, Washington in 1958 by four musicians who were all parents, hence the name “The Mom and Dads”.

The band became very popular in Canada, where they had a number of hits, including “The Rangers Waltz” and “The Blue Canadian Rockies”. The Mom and Dads were also known for their wholesome image and family-friendly appeal. They often wore matching outfits on stage and were frequently accompanied by their children, who sometimes performed with them. ┬áToday, their music remains popular among fans of easy listening and traditional pop music.
