The Bad Toupees have been rocking Central Pennsylvania since 1993. Originally getting together just to "jam" once a month, the criteria for songs of "instantly recognizable and instantly danceable" resonated with all who heard the Toupees and soon they were packing clubs across the region. The name, Bad Toupees, came from Bo, the original keyboard player who was the only person in the band who was, as they say, "follicly challenged."

Founding members and other musician friends
Being together 28 years is a special feat whether it is a band, a marriage or a job. While starting with 5 original members who were together faithfully until the early 2000's the band has since had several different line ups providing the classic rock and roll dance music the "Toupheads" have come to know and love. Without the now retired two guys featured below there would be no band and more importantly none of the fun the 5 of us and our friends and family have experienced since 1993. We miss our founding brothers Bo and Kirk playing with us, but are thankful to all the musicians who have been with us at one point or another in the last 28 years. We are especially thankful to Ashley and Bill in the current lineup (together for over 3 years now) for being great musicians and better friends.
