Local Act 'Bad Husbands Club' Added to Better Festival Roster

Bad Husbands Club perform at Chippewa's ice-fishing derby in February.
The Bad Husbands Club has been added to the stunning Better Festival roster for 2 p.m. Saturday, June 21, at Better Farm.

The Bad Husbands Club is a rock and blues band formed in 2000 by bassist/vocalist Len Senecal. The band has had many incarnations leading up to the current one consisting of:

Emilie Cardinaux, keyboards/vocals
Bill Hill, bass and vocals 
Bryan Honeywell,  guitar and vocals
Bill McGillvray, drums
Glen Pickert, guitar and vocals
Len Senecal, bass/vocals
Anthony Ubriaco, guitar 

What started out as a party band has become a premier North-Country rock band. Playing cover songs from 5 decades and throwing in some originals (including the song that bears the band's name), the Bad Husbands Club is a crowd-pleaser that always leaves fans begging for more. 

The Bad Husbands Club will perform at 2 p.m. on the main stage at Better Festival, the annual open house, fundraiser, and alumni weekend for Better Farm and betterArts. All funds raised at the event will directly fund art- and sustainability-related community outreach initiatives in and around Redwood.
The day-long event features live performances by local and regional bands, a gallery showcasing artwork by painters, sculptors, photographers, and more, booths featuring art and handmade items for sale, tours of the Better Farm campus, information about Better Farm and betterArts 2014 programming, arts and crafts for kids (and adults!), freshly prepared and locally sourced food, a refreshments tent, games, bouncy castle, and more! To introduce betterArts' latest endeavor Better Radio, there will be a booth set up for people to create content for that station. Music will also be recorded for live-streaming and podcasts.
Camping is available for $10/person/night. Accommodations are available Friday through Monday, or any night therein.

The Bad Husbands Club covers everything from the Allman Brothers Band, Duran Duran, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, the Stray Cats, Coldplay, Traffic, Clapton, the Clash, Neil Young, the Stones, Warren Zevon, the Tragically Hip, the Band, Santana, BTO, and even Johnny Cash. The group is always learning new stuff too—so you can expect to hear songs you love but don't hear every bar band play. No matter your musical taste or age, good music is good music!
