Blind

BlindThere was a time, before the recording industry was fully developed, when the labels applied to specific styles of music were nothing more than fledgling marketing terms. The musicians who appeared on the early records of the 1920's and 30's thought nothing of playing any style of music, and were guided only by their own personal taste. Artists like Eddie Lang and Louis Armstrong, in addition to playing their own music, backed blues shouters, country singers, and played in big band orchestras. This is the spirit that we, as a band, are trying to recapture. We play our own songs, and others that have caught our ears, regardless of their origins. Most importantly, we try to make every song our own. After six years of playing together, each musician in the group has developed a distinct, personal voice which can be heard in each song. The result is an infectious mix of early blues, jazz, country, and popular songs which is highly listenable and ideal for dancing.

Peter MikaPianist Peter Mika has performed professionally in Montreal for over fifteen years. In addition to playing with Blind, he has performed with Montreal groups Orealis, The Crazy Rhythm Daddies, The Steve Rowe Band, and The Stephen Barry Band. He also toured with New Orleans Blues legend, Bryan Lee. The deep, searching solos that emanate from his piano consistently bring out the best in the other members of the band.

Steven BarryUpright Bassist Stephen Barry needs no introduction. He has played the blues in Montreal for over 30 years, supporting legends like John lee Hooker, Hubert Sumlin, Vann Piano Man Walls, Pinetop Perkins, Big Moose Walker, Big Mama Thornton, Odetta, and Bo Diddley. In 2002 he was voted Canada's bass player of the year by the Toronto Blues Society. He brings an experience to the music that anchors the band into an always tight groove.

Ben CaissieThe quartet is rounded out by drummer Ben Caissie. When not playing with Blind, he divides his time between bands Bharath and the Catfish and Lil’ Andy and Karaoke Cowboy. He has also toured Europe three times with the legendary Sun Records recording artist Eddie Bond. His rock-solid shuffles on the snare drum keep toes tapping and feet dancing all night long, while his inventive solos always inspire the crowd.
