tOd Greer (Bass, Lead Vocals)

I got my start in the Columbus, Ohio music scene. Originally an aspiring guitarist (and not a very good one), it wasn’t until I took away two strings that I really found my calling.


Admittedly I was never one for practicing scales or attending lessons … I couldn’t wait to get started, and dove right in. While I will always consider myself a bassist first, no other voice ever seemed to sound right expressing my thoughts, so I became a vocalist as well.

The songs I write come from a very personal place, and somewhere in there, I hope they connect with others' experiences and emotions ... if you find yourself singing along, then I've done something right.

Mark has been performing and recording for more than 20 years with original acts, highly successful touring performers and recording projects.

Mark brings a wide percussive palette to tOd and the Bad Ideas, incorporating Cajon, congas, hand instruments, and straight-forward “rock” drums to provide a consistent, yet varied, foundation.

Jae Entsminger (Guitars, Vocals)

Jae Entsminger got his start at the wizened age of 15, two weeks after receiving his first guitar. From there, things got a bit more formal, and he's spent the last 30 years in more bands than he can remember [and allegedly some he doesn't], playing mostly original music with local and touring acts throughout the Midwest, and West Coast.
