"WASHINGTON D.C.’S BAD INFLUENCE BAND BREATHES NEW LIFE AND FRESH ENERGY INTO BLUES AND ROOTS MUSIC"

 

Join us on Saturday, October 19, for a Blues Dance with Bad Influence Band in the historic Spanish Ballroom. Your ticket to the dance includes a complimentary one-hour blues dance lesson from 8pm to 9pm, followed by dancing from 9pm to midnight.
 
Bad Influence Band has stayed at the apex of the mid-Atlantic region’s blues and roots music scene for three decades even while extending their reputation across the country thanks to wildly entertaining, high-energy performances, extensive airplay and three well-received albums.

 

Whether performing at a festival, on a stage at Kennedy Center, a showcase at the NAMM Show, or on Memphis’ hallowed Beale Street, the four-piece group featuring guitarist Michael Tash, harmonica ace and singer Roger Edsall, bassist-vocalist Bob Mallardi and drummer David Thaler are unabashed crowd pleasers thanks to their expert ensemble playing, strong melodies, addictive grooves, sly original songwriting and sheer intensity. Even audiences unfamiliar with blues and the other styles of roots music that inform the group’s wide repertoire are smitten with the Bad Influence Band’s joyful performances.
