Album/Band Review By John Sylvia

Boston Rock Radio

I’m very excited about this one. Not only is Bad Marriage a kick ass band, they are also a group of nice guys and have become personal friends of mine, so the following will be written from a less than objective point of view.

Out of the Boston area, this band continues the tradition of other phenomenal Hard Rock acts to emerge from this location. I don’t know if the words even exist to give this band the review that they deserve, but I’ll do my best.

I first saw Bad Marriage in December of 2017, when they opened for Dokken at The Palladium in Worcester, MA and I remember thinking, “These guys are rock stars.” Little did I know at that time how much impact they would end up having on my life. Enter The Vault Music Hall and Pub at Greasy Luck in Downtown New Bedford, MA, my neighborhood. I’ve since seen them there opening for iconic bands like Enuff Z’Nuff, XYZ, and Faster Pussycat and they never disappoint. A couple of the guys also come to town on a regular basis to catch other shows and I like to think, to also visit their biggest New Bedford fan, me, but I digress…

Bad Marriage always come out with an energy that is an experience, to say the least. They have Fitzy on lead and rhythm guitars, Johnny P on vocals and percussion, Delaney on drums, Todd Boisvert on bass, and Ian Haggerty (AKA The Good Captain) on rhythm guitars. The guys recently went out to California to record a song to be released in 2020 at J Street Entertainment, a company founded by Brian Wheat of Tesla fame. The debut self titled album is a twelve track album recorded at Studio Kujo by Fitzy himself, and it comes out of the gate running, with the opener, ”Diablo” and it just gets better from there. It’s tough to pick a favorite song, with tracks like “Old School Stereo” and “Gateway Drug,” this album rocks hard all the way through. Other tracks include “Ready Aim Fire,” “Electric Emerald Eyes,” “Ms. Outrageous,” “Nay-Sayin’ Blues,” “Sorry Don’t Feed the Bulldog,” “Long Way Down,” “Tail Chaser,” “Big Bad Wolf,” and “Model Citizen.”  You will be singing the words soon enough, both while listening and afterwards. The CD has been released and is currently available. I’m proud to say that I own two copies, one of which, the boys were kind enough to autograph for me. If you're looking to purchase a copy and you definitely should be, you can find it at I would also be remiss if I failed to mention that a very popular sporting goods apparel company had acquired “Nay-Sayin’ Blues” for their television advertisements.

This band is some of the most hard working and fan friendly musicians out there, and this shows by the number of faithful fans that follow them. There is even a group that has sprung up on Facebook, called Bad Marriage Society. It’s a page where people, like me, get to share their stories, pictures, and anything else Bad Marriage related. The group currently consists of 1.2K members from all across the country. I recently attended a tour fundraiser for the band, where many of the “Society” were also in attendance and they had a gentleman who drove down from Maine and another who actually flew in from Texas to support them. That’s how it happens, you get to know the music, then you get to know the band and their loyal following, and then you are hooked, you’ll be a fan forever.

Now onto that aforementioned tour, Give Up Your Vows Tour, 2019.  Bad Marriage will be embarking on a month long tour, as the supporting act for the legendary Tesla. The tour kicks off on September 4th in Oshkosh, WI and ends on September 28th in San Antonio,Texas. You can find all other dates and locations on the band’s Facebook page. I personally, will be seeing them on September 13th at The Lynn Memorial Auditorium in Lynn,MA.

In closing, I would just like to say, give these guys a listen and check out a live show if you’re able to. You will not regret it, I promise. Their music can be streamed through most of the more popular music apps out there and they have videos on YouTube and can be heard on Boston Rock Radio. Rock on Bad Marriage!!!
