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.  
Smiley - Hailing from one of Medway’s top bands (#475 - The Throwbacks) Smiley has been wowing audiences for many years with his fantastic voice and stage presence - he does also appear to be as mad as a box of frogs!

The current (2020) line-up still in it’s early stages but even after the first few gigs they have already been described as ‘on another level’ and ‘one of the best bands in Kent’ by several ardent music fans.
After a promising debut album which won several awards and was well-received by most the band slowed through 2019 due to a lack of commitment but writing has continued. Intention is to focus on getting material together in March/April with a view on a new album for the summer.

Dates are still being added for 2020 so 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....
