BAD BOYZ BOOGIE, se forment en janvier 1995. Ils tournent et jouent intensément avec le même line-up pendant 10 ans. Cependant, à la fin 2004, le batteur original et le claviériste quittent pour poursuivre d'autres intérêts.
Les membres fondateurs, Deno Amodeo et Eric Beaulé, recrutent le chanteur puissant et "soulful" Guy Côté qui de temps à autres y va avec un solo d'harmonica, et le roi du groove, Joel Gagné à la batterie. Avec ce nouveau line-up dynamique, de nouvelles chansons dans le "set-list", de nouvelles chansons originales et un CD en production, BAD BOYZ BOOGIE sont énergisé et prêt à rocker plus que jamais!

Les musiciens ont accompagné plusieurs vedettes de la scène pop et rock québécoise, sur disques et en tournées. Le groupe a participé au Festival de Jazz de Montréal à deux reprises avec grand succès, de même que plusieurs autres événements et festivals Blues et Jazz.
Le blues-rock électrique des BAD BOYZ est puissant et épicé, il rappelle souvent Stevie Ray Vaughan, ZZ Top et Jimi Hendrix.
