LIVING ON A BAD NAME . A TRIBUTE TO BON JOVI
Your Favorite Bon Jovi fix. Living On A Bad Name is uniquely set apart from the other Bon Jovi tribute bands and frankly from almost all other tribute acts available on the market today. Each night we give it our all. We treat every stage as if it’s Madison Square Garden in 1986. We leave nothing behind. Every night, every show is played like an 80s rock concert is supposed to be played.
”You won’t believe your eyes. Your eyes will not believe your ears.” ~Bon Jovi “Last Man Standing”
Our musicianship starts out with the masterful guitar playing of Ethan Brosh. Ethan is a world renowned recording artist with profound influence in the heavy metal guitar world. This Berklee College of Music wizard has guest artists on his records such as George Lynch of Dokken, Dave Ellefson of Megadeth, Mike Mangini of Dream Theater, “Satchel” of Steel Panther, Greg Howe among others.
Boston radio personality Ken Pittman performs the part of Jon Bon Jovi. Unlike other JBJ tribute vocalists who go for the easier post 2000 version, Ken zeroes in on the vintage and distinct 1980s Bon Jovi voice. With Ken’s son Keith on percussions (since he was 12!), veteran rockers John Miker and Scott Poole on bass and keyboards, this roster is Rock-solid.
The impersonation is peerless, the energy, tones, sounds, musicianship and chemistry in this band has to be seen and heard to be believed.
Many Bon Jovi tribute bands make hollow and senseless claims to be “#1” or come up with some corny slogans of being the “truly” one and only bla bla bla. Music’s only truth is opinion. Yours.
