A great band, everything your mother warned you about. Bad Habits is a quartet based out of the Monterey Peninsula. We are accomplished musicians who have been together since 2003. All four have each been making music for 20+ years--two of the members having over 30+ years of experience each.

The music of Bad Habits is blues-based with an emphasis on up-tempo, danceable tunes. The song list contains blues & rock standards, covering songs by such artists as B. B. King, Albert Collins, Eric Clapton, Paul Butterfield, Louis Jordan, and the Rolling Stones.

Bad Habits “cut our teeth” at the Moss Landing Inn early-on, and we have been known to "testify" at various establishments on The Monterey Peninsula & Tri-County Area, including The Mucky Duck, Bullwacker’s, Ocean Thunder, and jamming at Sly McFly’s. We’ve performed at the Alano Club in Salinas, Mom & Pop’s in San Juan Bautista, Johnny’s in Hollister, Severino’s Grill & The Wind Jammer in Aptos, The Fogbank and The Wharf House in Capitola, and Henfling’s in Ben Lomond. We’ve played private parties in Ben Lomond, Cambria, Laytonville, Moss Landing, and Salinas, as well as Corporate Events like The AT&T Pro-Am on the 18th Lawn at Pebble Beach!

I think you’ll find we are some Bad Habits worth keeping!
