as The Bad Hobbits


We are a rabble-rousing, foot-stomping quartet that plays a variety of music - traditional old-time tunes, rock and roll, pop, speed metal - all with a bluegrass flair.  We play at a lot of parties, fund raisers, farms, breweries, small bars and, if no one wants us, Jill’s front porch.  We come up with a personalized band name unique to each venue just to amuse ourselves and stay one step ahead of the sheriff, but you can usually sniff us out on our Facebook page or on the web at

Just don’t follow too closely, we bite.
