The Bad Man

THE BAD MAN: Named a Best New Band of 2017 by First Avenue, City Pages Picked to Click in 2018, and fronted by one of the Twin Cities' "most dynamic and devilish rock ‘n’ roll frontmen" (per Chris Riemenschneider of the Star Tribune), The Bad Man is no stranger to fun. Known for their unpredictable and adrenaline-fueled performances, the band delivers a danceable, rowdy rock sound driven by guitar, saxophone, and a back-alley bounce. "Bum a ride, see 'em live, they're worth the cover charge."
