Bad Med Biographies


The special ingredients
in Bad Medicine are:
 
Philip Mooradian
(Lead Vocals and Acoustic Guitar):

 
 
 
      Phil is one of founding members of Bad Medicine.  He started singing at weddings, coffeehouses and any place where he could get started. While a rock stage may have once seemed to be one of the most unlikely places for him, he teamed up with Larry to form a band that would last a long time.  There have been at least 5 drummers and almost 30 guitarists in this band over the years, but only 1 singer...ever. The band started with Madd Maxx as its name, but took off with Bad Medicine in the early '80's and never looked back.

     Though taking a break for a few years, he has come back with his acoustic guitar to realize a stronger voice and a deeper appreciation for performing with a great team of veteran muscians.  It does not matter what kind of tune it is, he will work it if it means the crowd enjoys it.  Whether it is AC/DC, Melissa Etheridge, Scorpions, Journey, Sly and the Family Stone...he'll sing it.  Also, as one of the "business-minded people" in the band, he looks to grab as much attention for the band he can get.




 





 

Justin Paquin
(Bass Guitar and Vocals):

 

J.P. has always had a passion for writing and performing. He originally started playing in a wedding cover band with his father, but eventually fell in love with nu-metal sound of the early 90s. He played with This Side Up and tore up the local original scene in the early 2000s. After TSU disbanded, he collaborated with Dave Marquis in Holopoynt. This where he started to hone in his skills. The two of them joined the local cover mainstay, Over 6 in 2017. It is in this band he met the incomparable, Gregg Tansino. They quickly formed a tight rhythm section bond. 

J.P. loves being in the studio jamming or recording, but it's the live performance the truly drives him. He follows a strict code: "If you ain't movin, they ain't movin!".

Bad Medicine looks forward to lots of new ideas coming from J.P. as he will fit right in -- especially with the craziness with our drummer, Gregg.



 
Bill Davidson 
(Keyboards and Vocals):
 
 
     Bill is one of new members of the band and joined Bad Med in the fall of 2012.  He started taking classical piano lessons at age 5 and continued with them through high school. In 1983, he saw Asia in concert -- Geoff Downes had 26 keyboards running across the stage and he knew immediately he would play electronic instruments vs. just piano. Aside of Asia, some of his favorite bands and influences include Toto, Alan Parsons, Genisis, Yes (The Trevor Rabin era) and hair bands in general.
  
     In the early 90's, he was Dr. Digital at Innoventions at EPCOT in Walt Disney World and delivered an interactive demo on how to write music using a synthesizer and your home computer.  Bill's first band was The Weekend Millionaires out of Orlando Florida.  In 1988, he moved to Providence, RI and was part of the The Big Payback.  He also worked at Star Trak Studios writing commercial jingles and composing music for television news and corporate video.  He came to New Hampshire in 1999 and played with the Martin Brothers Band out of Nashua, NH.  In 2010, he started B.A.D. Music Productions (
