*** Bad Influence - Nominated for Best Blues Band by the Washington Area Music Association for 2004! *** *** Bad Influence - Featuring Epiphone endorsed guitarist Michael Tash and Hohner endorsed harp player Roger Edsall *** *** Bad Influence - Nominated for 3 Washington Area Music Association awards for 2003! *** Bad Influence has been rocking houses in the Maryland/Virginia/DC area since it's humble beginnings back in 1988. We play a mixture of Swing and Chicago style music, sure to give everyone in the room a true taste of the blues. Bad Influence features Bob Mallardi on bass and vocals, Roger Edsall on harp and vocals, D'Addario and Vintique endorsed artist, Michael 'Jr' Tash on guitar and vocals, Jay Corder on Sax, and David 'Buck' Thaler on the drums. This CD, our 1st Badblues release, is 13 of our favorite songs. There are songs by BB King, Robert Cray, The T-Birds, and a few other greats. Joining the band for this record is Ed Lehner on guitar, Fred Hillyard on bass and a rare appearance by Tom Swanton. The Washington Post says 'BAD INFLUENCE'S 'Where We Been' lays bare the band's influences, and as such the album is akin to a 13-tune program in how to acquire a taste for the blues.'
