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. We can be seen performing around Abilene at different events, ranging from Art Walks to Art Gallery Grand Openings...from Big Days Downtown to Political Rallies to Elementary School Fall Festivals...or just down at the Zoo or local miniature golf joint. Our fundamental reason for existence is to make people laugh, dance, and sing...and to have fun doing it.
