Don't miss the 3rd Annual Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds St. Patrick's Day bash this weekend!

Bad Hair is going to rock your Friday night! I talked to the band about how they celebrate the holiday!

Please introduce the members of your band!

Ricky Styxx has been on drums since the beginning in 2013. Rick teachers drum during the week and has been in numerous other bands previous to BAD HAIR.

Tim Rockstroh joined us in 2015 on bass, and plays in two other side projects as well.

Buddy Arshbrenner is our lead guitarist from Cedar Rapids Iowa & joined BAD HAIR from his previous band, Lip Stick Slick in 2019

Brian Scott is our lead vocalist & original founding member since 2013. Brian is a radio personality in various cities and currently resides in Peoria Illinois.

How long has the band been playing?

Since 2012, Rick & Brian met in a previous band, and are still best friends & band mates to date.

When BAD HAIR is off, we gather up as BAD HAIR UnPLUGGED & do some smaller acoustic shows with special guests on vocals, or instruments. We enjoy hanging together as friends & a band.

Got any St. Patrick's Day Traditions?

Most notably, we were the band that played at Shenanigans when during a stabbing in 2015 so we have avoided that tradition. But, we have been known for playing 2 or 3 shows in one St. Patrick Saturday Celebration. Entertaining the St. Pat's crowd is a blast.

Any St. Paddy's Day memories?

As a group that truly enjoys being with each other as friends & a team, getting to do that on St. Pats is always a favorite.

Best Irish Drinking song?

Anything that's Irish by the Beastie Boys or Van Halen

What are you looking forward to most about this weekends show?

The pandemic is over, everyone being out, being safe, celebrating together. Getting to see each other again. We have a great fan & friends base, and always appreciate seeing them out for the shows and the after parties that seem to go on way too long.

LOOK: Milestones in women's history from the year you were born

Women have left marks on everything from entertainment and music to space exploration, athletics, and technology. Each passing year and new milestone makes it clear both how recent this history-making is in relation to the rest of the country, as well as how far we still need to go. The resulting timeline shows that women are constantly making history worthy of best-selling biographies and classroom textbooks; someone just needs to write about them.

Scroll through to find out when women in the U.S. and around the world won rights, the names of women who shattered the glass ceiling, and which country's women banded together to end a civil war.
