About Living on a bad name

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 they give it their 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 distinct1980s 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.
