Living On A Bad Name formed in 2010 and was born out of a fundraiser for the New Bedford Symphony Orchestra in Massachusetts. LBN is among the easier bands to work with, eager to please and will travel anywhere to perform. Bon Jovi tributes are easy to find but few can hit it out of the park night after night like Living On A Bad Name. What are you waiting for?!!

What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 45 - 180 minutes
Our goal is to remind Bon Jovi fans of their past in the 80s and 90s and how much they loved the ballads like "Never Say Goodbye" or "I'll Be There For You". How they rocked out to "Living' On A Prayer, You Give Love A Bad Name, Wanted Dead or Alive, Runaway, Raise Your Hands, Keep The Faith" and to remind them that they are not alone in loving those hidden gems like "Dry County, Blood on Blood, Always or Shot Through The Heart"
We play the cross over songs and newer Bon Jovi and our set list is never the same.
We like to expend all of our energy into recreating not just the music but also the inspiring lyrics of the New Jersey rockers whose message is almost always to stick together, be loyal and true and fight the grind of life to reach the happiness that IS within reach no matter how hard it seems.
In an era of greed, infidelity and division, we admire the writing of this band that defies the status quo even though those things are a pillar of Rock and Roll itself.
Bon Jovi mixes in a bit of decadence with virtue and to that, we raise our glasses and hope to see you in front of us soon. Cheers - Ken Pittman, lead vocalist for "Living On A Bad Name"

In and out of love
You give love a bad name
Have a nice day
Shot through the heart
Born to be my baby
Bed of roses
Born to follow
Wild is the wind
Blaze of glory
Who says you can’t go home
I Love This town
I’ll sleep when I’m dead
Blood on blood
Raise your hands
Never say goodbye
Keep the faith
Lay your hands on me
Wanted: Dead or Alive
I’ll be there for you
I wish Everyday Could be Like Christmas
Please Come Home for Christmas
It’s my life
Livin’ on a prayer
