Bad Alibi - Original Lineup


BAD ALIBI was formed in 1996 by Mike Howatson (drums), Kerry Rogers (lead guitar) and Jason Penry (bass). The band soon brought in Ben Frost (rhythm guitar) and Scott Hand (vocals) and began playing the cover band circuit here in the Seattle Area.

As time went on, Ric Moore replaced Ben on rhythm guitar for a couple of months, and was then replaced by Chris Sikora. Mike Jonson, then replaced Jason on the bass guitar. Kerry left the band next and was replaced by Rick Williams.  After Chris moved to Arizona he was replaced by Dave Dechenne who was later replaced by Cameron Crotty.  After Cam moved back to San Francisco there were no subsequent rhythm guitar players.  Rick Williams was replaced by Glenn Talley, to be followed by Matt Engel for a few months, then Dave Bayautet who was the final guitarist.  Julie Roman was added as female lead vocals, assuring the diversity of BAD ALIBI and she kicked ass to the end!
