The music of Bad To Be Good is characterized as “Eastern Country and Northern Blues.” Led by songwriter, guitarist and vocalist Marvin Bentley, the all-original repertoire of this group establishes Vermont country blues as a rival to Nashville and Memphis. With Marvin’s robust and burly voice, Dennis Waring’s wailing saxophone, Marvin Bentley II’s thumping bass and Pat Kelly’s grooving drums, this group’s infectious spirit makes you want to shout and dance. Other songs make you want to cry. This band defines a whole new style of Vermont-grown down-home music with lots of soul.
