Portrait of Bad Apples
Hailing from New Haven, Connecticut and currently residing in Philadelphia, Bad Apples is a rock/funk trio consisting of James Albis (Rhodes, Moog, saxophone), BJ Felsted (bass), and Dave Witter (drums). Drawing on such influences as Steely Dan, David Bowie, and Talking Heads, Bad Apples continue to impress every new ear that hears them with their catchy melodies, lively harmonies, and tight grooves.

Since the September 2007 release of their debut album, Home, the band has been touring steadily throughout the northeast, while sharing the stage with national acts such as Blind Melon, Bill Kreutzmann of The Grateful Dead, The Breakfast and funk legends Tower of Power. Home showcases Bad Apples’ versatility – from their acute pop sensibility in “Danny Movefastly” to their jazz chops in “Jackpot” to their ability to rock in “What Makes You Go” and “Days” – while paying homage to the place where they grew up and the people that were closest to them. Further testament to their artistic range is a guest appearance by rapper Black Child of The Inc. Records (formerly known as Murder, Inc.) in “Moses Poses: Private Eye.” Brian Tucker of Bootleg Magazine says that “Home represents Bad Apples refining their sound and serving as a peek into their future as a dynamic rock band.” dubs Bad Apples a “perfect example of another overlooked band,” but they have been far from overlooked during their first year of touring, wowing crowds with their distinct sound and rocking tunes. Playing at the Utica Music Fest, MEANY Fest in Manhattan, St. Peters Village Oktoberfest, and venues such as the world renowned Toad’s Place, Bad Apples have developed a following throughout the northeast. You can also hear them featured on websites and, or on the radio on New Haven’s WPLR and UltraRadio and William Patterson’s WPSC.

Bad Apples also completed their first national tour during the summer of 2008, playing shows in Chicago, St. Louis, Denver, and San Diego, among other cities, gaining new fans across the country. Keep up with the band at for tour dates, news, and other info.
