Bad Habit


Bass Guitar.


Ventura County based cover band playing classic '80s hits, with some '90s, classic rock, funk/disco, mixed in. But our main forte is upbeat, popular '80s hits. Looking for a solid bass player with good rhythm to hold down the low end, with good chops, gear, good attitude, and the desire to have a great time playing fun tunes. No egos, no drama, no drug/alcohol dependencies. Must be available to rehearse 1x/week to start, then once assimilated into the band, rehearsal every other week. We typically gig 1-2x/month. Must be RELIABLE, flexible, and easy going. We're not chasing the rock star dream, we're working adults who play to have fun and feed our music addiction.

Members Of Band

We're a six-piece: bass, drums, lead guitar, rhythm guitar/male lead vocal, keyboards, female lead vocal. Band members are 40yrs old +, with careers and family. But we're all kids at heart. Age does not matter as long as you have proficient skills, genuinely want to play this era/genre of music, are reliable, easy going, and want a FUN, casual band situation. We're not doing this to tour and become rock stars (too old for that), not in this to feed our kids or pay the bills (we have careers), we're not looking to rehearse 3x/week, or gig every weekend. Nope. We're doing this for the love of playing, and to have FUN and to entertain... but within a reasonable rehearsal/gig schedule that fits realistically within our everyday adult lives. But we're serious about being good and tight. And did I say to have FUN? We have a good following and reputation, and gig regularly in the Ventura County area, bars, restaurants, wineries, community events, private parties, corporate events, etc. We were one of the top three nominees for Best Cover Band by the Ventura County Music Awards in 2019.
