Bad Medicine was formed and led by lifelong Bon Jovi fan, Joe Frasca, back in February 2001. Through the years, the talented collection of musicians has proven time and time again that Bad Medicine is truly the “next best thing”. In recent years, Bad Medicine has added several “non-Jovi” songs from the same genre, for those longer sets and situations that require a more diverse performance. However, they remain Chicagoland’s favorite band for Bon Jovi, and still play more Bon Jovi than anyone else in the scene.
