Top Dollar Rock and Blues
No Short Change - No Dodgy Notes!

Bad Pennies are a raw, unadulterated
blues rock band 
original material and a selection of covers 
paying tribute to some of the finest 
blues rockers of the 70’s and 80’s: 
Rory Gallagher, Stevie Ray, 
Dr Feelgood, ZZ Top 
and a whole lot more.
Founded by guitarist Gary Seager when he moved to Kent from South East London, Bad Pennies started as a covers band playing around the Kent pub scene. Gaz had played in several originals bands around London in a previous life. His style very much influenced by Blackmore, Page, Johnny Winter and Rory Gallagher. 

Dave Two-Jackets, a professional drummer since 19 with influences including Ian Paice and Carl Palmer, Dave has played all over the UK and Europe has been driving the rhythm in Bad Pennies since 2008. 
Gavin Matthews joined in 2015 and is a talented and vastly experienced bassist / songwriter.  Early influences include Paul McCartney, Jimmy Lea and the ‘early 70‘s mad men’. Previously played in several NWBHM bands.  
Adam Walker - Actually played bass with the band in 2014-15 before seeking other horizons. Now back on stage - and this time on lead vocals with the occasional rhythm guitar.

Currently (Summer 2021) emerging from the Governments’ covid 19 campaign, the band have lined up a selection of gigs and have restarted efforts for their second album.

Venues are understandably reticent to over-commit at this stage but hopefully a vibrant scene return and Bad Pennies will be turning up again on a regular basis. Meanwhile, we’ll be working on the new album.... be sure to keep an eye on the gig dates then come on down for a boogie!

Available for gigs in Pubs & Clubs, Rallies, Open-Air Events and Private Parties around Kent, London and beyond....
