Enjoy the greasy, sexy, hip shaking, earth quaking, throbbing, bopping, bluesin', boozin', vintage juke joint sounds of 

THE BLIND BLAKES BLUES BAND. With the use of vocals, violin, guitar, bass, drums, piano, and horns they create original old-time inspired

Blues, Jazz, and Gypsy music.

            Like a small batch of boutique Bourbon, The Blind Blakes Band is a smoky, rich liquor of vintage music magic.

          Enjoy a protein rich musical gumbo of 1920’s New Orleans Mambo, 1930’s Kansas City Swing, 1940’s Harlem Nocturnes, 1950’s Chicago Blues,

with the added spice of Gypsy Jazz Blues violin.

Their sound and style present an eclectic mix of the music of Louis Armstrong, The North Mississippi All Stars, Django Reinhardt, Dr. John,

Keb’ Mo, The Stray Cats, Morphine, Gypsy Jazz, Muddy Waters,

Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Stuff Smith.
