Black Daisy was an Irish-Lithuanian band that, along with Sinéad Mulvey represented Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2009 with the song Et Cetera.[1][2]


The band originated from Dublin, and was formed by Steff Caffrey (lead guitar and backing vocals), Nicole Billings (rhythm guitar and backing vocals), Asta Millerienė (drums), and Lesley-Ann Halvey (lead vocals and bass guitar). Steff Caffrey was asked to leave the band in February 2009 as RTÉ, the Irish national Broadcaster,felt that a 4 piece backing band was too large for the Eurovision stage.
