The Blind Blakes

The music of Los Angeles based retro/punk/jazz/music archivists The Blind Blakes is a dangerous, thrilling, and sultry musical cocktail party.

Find yourself stopping for drinks at the sexy bordellos of 1920s New Orleans, the greasy Juke Joints Of Chicago, the Voodoo Gambler Riverboats of Mississippi, the Smokey Saloons of Jazzy Harlem, and the Parisian Gypsy Jazz Hot Clubs for last call.

The Blind Blakes are a harmonious blend of Blue Note Records, Big top Circus Music, Havana Bar Band, Film Noir Soundtrack, Beat Poetry Bongo solo, Gypsy campfire fiddle fest, Harry Smith Anthology of Folk Music and early morning gospel Baptist church choir.

“The musicians were fantastic -- they were the toast of our entire ceremony and reception. My husband is Scottish, but we also love jazz, and the ensemble found a way for us to blend both. They played pieces for us that were not too folksy but still gave us the unique feel we were hoping for and it did not go unnoticed. Guests told us it was some of the best live music they had heard and that made our special day even more memorable.”

—Melanie & Matthew, married May 21, 2006, Historical Courthouse, Santa Barbara, CA
