Charming Bastards Band

   The Charming Bastards are four life-long musicians from Eastern Massachusetts, and we decided to start another band, because, well, there's nothing on TV, so why not?  We could have done our own music, which is complex, profoundly moving, and full of subtle artistic nuances and clever references to pop culture & politics -  BORING! So instead we have a set of our favorite rock classics, new and old.  We like playing songs that you wish the other cover bands would play, so it's pretty fresh! Check out the list and vids below, and come and see us play, 'cause we're really good and - we picked the band name for a reason ...

   When you come to a show, have your phone cams ready. If you send us a pic or a video and we use it in our website/YouTube/Facebook/Instagram social media empire, we'll buy you drinks at the next show, and give you a credit on the site. Great idea, right? We thought so.  

 FUTURE DATES - Mark your calendars:
 May 2017
     May 20th at Station Eight in Marshfield! See you there
 March 2017
     April - booking another show at the Shamrock, date TBA.
