Once described as “a blues band on steroids”, The Badweather Blues Band,(BWB), has had the honor of performing their brand of R&B, blues, funk and soul for audiences for almost the past decade.
Calling the Southern Tier of New York their home, this electrifying act has enjoyed an enthusiastic following that supports their busy schedule of club and concert appearances.
Armed with the powerhouse vocals of Debbie “Hop” Hospie and the soulful rasp of Bob “Sonny Boy” Jenson, vocal melodies soar. Matched with the instrumental dominance of Brian “Goldmember” Golden’s guitar work, and Mike “The Reverend” Melnyk’s crafty keyboard prowess, listeners will be taken to another level of holiness. The sextet is
rounded out by the rhythm section of bassist Tom “The Ringer” Westcott and the funky drummer himself, Steve “The Hurricane” Simmons.
