Bad Influence is made up of men who remember what great music and concerts were in the 1980's and are trying to bring that back, but with a modern sound.

BAD INFLUENCE is an Original rock band, in the vein of Nickelback and Creed, but with catchy, upbeat hooks, and choruses that girls like to sing along to (think Green Day meets Nickelback).

BAD INFLUENCE was a pretty big deal around 2003-2005, winning the "Shot At Cabo Wabo" Nationwide contest, sponsored by Sammy Hagar and his Tequila for the state of California. BI first won Sacramento, then California, and then out of 20 cities across the Nation, came in 2nd place to the band from Atlanta.

The band got National Exposure, went to the NAMM show that year, was featured on CNTV - a TV channel out of Hayward, was mentioned on 98 Rock, and FM rock station out of Sacramento, and the Feature story in 110' Magazine, a very large circulation Contra Costa county Magazine.

The band kept it going for another 3 years, and then took some time off. Now with a new Lead Singer, the band is hungry, and booking shows to get this rolling again.

In the last 3 months, BAD INFLUENCE has played all over the Bay Area and Sacramento once again, recently in Antioch, Concord, Alameda, Crockett, Sunnyvale ,Sacramento, and even did two shows in the SAME night at two different clubs in Reno.
