Here’s the remainder of the year dates we have at O’Shea’s Pub & Grill. We are still looking to add one or two more at a couple of new places to be announced at a later date, once I get my schedule set at my new location for work, but we will keep you posted.

All current Bad Karma dates have been cancelled for the meantime until we work out the details on rearranging a few things. All is good, don’t freak out and certainly don’t think that just cause your ex is wearing a Bad Karma T-Shirt the band is breaking up…
Most of you know the story, but for those that don’t, it has become increasingly more difficult for me to maintain the schedule I’d like with the band and be able to focus on my career. One thing has to give eventually, and while I’ll always be playing and writing music, the days of gigging on the weekends when you work retail just isn’t possible.
I have a few dates till the end of the year that I can play, so we’re currently working that out, so stayed tuned and I’ll keep ya posted on what’s what.
Sorry for the confusion but we are at Papa G’s on June 7th, 2013 and we will be at O’Shea’s Pub and Grill on June 21st, 2013.
More to come, and look for the invites on Facebook!
So there has been much rumor and speculation, about the band, as well as the direction we have taken over the last few months. So, I wanted to set the record straight.
My schedule at my job has been increasingly more difficult to schedule gigs over the last few months, and I want to recognize my bothers for accepting the fact that, while I love this band more than I love most things… my job and my family come first.
I want to play as much as I can, but with working a retail schedule, I am often times limited in what I can and can’t do. We have a valued friend and musician in Dave Corley who has not only stepped up to the plate to help us out in a pinch, but has come become a part of our brotherhood.
I have just posted all of the dates we have for the rest of 2013, and there are several dates in which I can not perform due to work, and therefore we have our good friend Dave to lead the band and take care of a several dates we have posted.
I want everyone to know that has supported us over the the years, that I not only support Dave and his huge musical talent, I appreciate him in everything he has done for Bad Karma over the last few months. I want everyone to know, that as far as I am concerned, Dave Corley is the fifth member of Bad Karma and where I can not be, he will.
He is a part of Bad Karma as others in this band have come and gone, and he not only brings an element of surprise and new offerings, he is a valued friend and brother that I trust with the legacy which we have shared, with so many of you over the years.
I hope that you all understand, and I will continue to play as much as I can. I am not interested in leaving, quitting, giving up or pursuing a solo or side project. I have played with and will continue to play with other artists in the area and I’m very proud of the relationships that I have made over the years in the DFW music scene. This is not a farewell, but simply a new chapter in this musical venture known as Bad Karma.
Truth be known, to those that don’t know… Bad Karma started in 1994 with our good friend Roger DeWater and a female lead singer named Connie. When the band Strange Brew broke up and Roger and I decided to continue on with a band, he suggested the name Bad Karma and it’s stuck ever since.
When Roger decided that he wanted to move on and pursue other ventures, I asked that I could continue with what we had built together and use the name still. I got his blessing, and the rest is history.
So Bad Karma lives on, and we have new friends, and may I say, very talented musicians, helping us out on our journey, but I could not think of anyone more experienced, and or humbled to be a part of what we have created over the years, more than Dave.
Dave… Thank you for being who you are, and I’m proud to say that you are not just another guy helping us out, but I am proud to say, I’m glad you are a part of Bad Karma and will be for years to come.
I hope this clears up what some of you have been thinking, but at the end of the day, Dave Corley is just as much as a member of Bad Karma, as he is a friend to me.
If there are any other questions, feel feee to message me or call, but consider Bad Karma as a 5 piece band going forward, unless of course I can’t make it on time ; )
Thank you to my friends and especially, thank you to Bad Karma.
We have a lot of people coming this Friday for the End Of The World Jam at O’Shea’s Pub & Grill! Special Guest and one of my best friends Roger DeWater will be joining us for some 3rd set jam action! Last time we had a 5 piece Bad Karma jam was in October of 2009! It will be EPIC! Hope to see you there! ~ Chance
