Who We Are

Bad Karaoke is an Abilene cover band that performs a wide variety of fan favorites from numerous decades, and across the rock, pop, and country genres. Our fundamental reason for existence is to make people laugh, dance, and sing...and to have fun doing it.

You may recognize us from the rooftop of the Grace as we commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' Rooftop Concert, or during Abilene's Big Day downtown where we took Center Stage for the day, or possibly at the annual Rentech Chili Super Bowl, or the Abilene Zoo's annual Party for the Planet celebration. Or maybe you have just seen us downtown during an Art Walk, at ACU during a pre-game tailgating party, or out at Play Faire Park on the weekend.
