As most of y'all know, Bad Weather States is hard-charging band of brothers from Greenwood, SC.  We have played together in various forms throughout the years and organically came together in our passionate search for an outlet for original and inspired Southern/Americana rock and roll.  We released our debut album in the Fall of 2017 and an EP last Fall.  Both can be found on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon Music, etc.  We continue to write and record new and original tunes and look forward to sharing that music with you in many forms.    

With the music business being drastically different from 25+ years ago, we know that our future lies in making disciples through live performances.  Fortunately, this is what we do best.  In order to take our music to the next level, we are seeking assistance in purchasing a van that will allow us to follow this dream.  We're not seeking anything fancy, but this van will allow us to carry gear and five young men through the South and beyond as we continue to line up gigs far from our hometown.  Currently, we are hamstrung in our ability to transport instruments, PA and band members.   

Bad Weather States will forever be indebted to and inspired by anyone that can contribute towards this goal.  We have t-shirts, CDs, koozies, stickers and other VIP options for contributors at certain levels.  Just contact us for details.
