Bad Weather Birds

The OBX Sessions

V (acoustic EP)



The Bad Weather Birds are a Hampton Roads-based original progressive roots rock jam band.  After beginning in 2014 as a 4-piece, founding members Brent Esber, Padric Toman, and Joe Peterfeso added drummer Anthony LoMonaco and keyboardist Alfred Evans to round out the sound.

Since their formation the band has recorded and released a studio album, “Bad Weather Birds”, an acoustic EP, and two improvisation-based albums.  Their original songs “Mercy” and “Straight No Chaser” have received repeated local airplay on both 89.5 WHRV’s “Out of the Box” program hosted by Paul Shugrue, 96X, and YourMusicShow.  They have also established a solid reputuation as an engaging live band, earning themselves a nomination for Veer Magazine’s “Best Psychedelic Band”.

Bad Weather Birds' original material fuses a strong melodic sense with exciting instrumental interplay and meaningful lyrics.  These originals, combined with a selection of genre-spanning cover songs, and a dose of improvisation, are the foundation of the Bad Weather Birds sound.  It is the band’s goal to provide their audiences with an engaging and entertaining musical journey.  Their live shows feature different setlists each night, often punctuated with original debuts and one-off covers to create a unique experience for every show they play.
