Winners of the prestigious 2005 Telluride Bluegrass Festival band
competition, The Badly Bent has performed regularly in Durango and
nationally at over 100 festivals. Although the band’s lineup has
changed through the years, we have remained loyal to the traditional
sounds of bluegrass with our own high energy twist.
The Badly Bent is comprised of Patrick Dressen, guitar and vocals,
Mark Epstein, banjo and vocals, Joel Denman, mandolin and fiddle, and
our newest member of the band, Alex Read on bass.
The Badly Bent, in the words of Bryant Liggett, “has been a mainstay in
the local bluegrass scene for over 20 years.” The band has had a wide
variety of member musicians through the years and has been able to
reimagine itself with each new configuration. The Badly Bent for 2024
is no exception!
From Patrick, Mark, Joel, and Alex, thanks to all our loyal friends and
fans who have stuck with us through more than two decades.
