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. For a while the covers were fine and there were plenty of gigs to be had but Gaz was looking for the right line up to get back into producing original material.

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 Stocker - a buddy of Gavin’s, covered the lead vocals from 2016 until mid-2019

The current (2019) line-up is the band’s best ever in terms of both live performances and recorded work. They’ve played hundreds of shows and have always been a favourite on the Kent music scene thanks to Gary’s outstanding guitar work, Dave & Gavin’s locked-down rhythm section and Adam’s swaggering vocals.
Their 2016 EP “Turned Up Again” set the tone and was listed in the IBBA UK Blues Chart. Then in 2018 released their highly-acclaimed and award-winning debut album: “Songs from the Medway Delta” - containing 14 original compositions.
Bad Pennies is still very much a live band - as can be seen throughout their busy 2019 schedule. Check out the gig dates then come on down for a boogie!
