$100 - $250 per hour
Blinded By The Blues is playing high performance West Coast and Chicago blues with
touches of rockabilly and Texas Shuffle. The group's distinctive sound is influenced by
many styles of music which has merged to form a unique sound.  
We are a straight ahead blues band. It is our focus and passion. We'vje incorporated a
mixture of different blues styles into our repertoire.

The band features, and is anchored by the harp stylings of "Blind Bulldog" Ronnie
Johnson. Ronnie, sight-impaired from childhood, was raised to be a musician by his
stepdad, the great New Orleans piano player Ronnie Barron. He experienced this
musical style at a very early age, and it is now part of his soul. He brings that same
experience to the band and keeps us firmly grounded in the blues sounds of the 50's and

 In addition to Mark H and "Blind Bulldog," the current Blinded By The Blues line-up
features Byron "The Rango Kid" Tice on the keyboard and Mark "Flash Cadillac" on the

"Mighty" Mike Harvey provides the blues beat on drums, and Bob "Hatchmo" Hatcher
rips it up on vocals and walkin bass.

To be in Blinded By The Blues, you need to understand and be deeply influenced by blues
greats: Muddy Waters, T-Bone Walker, Little Walter, James Cotton, and George
Harmonica Smith. You need to know the different styles of music and different ways of
playing so you can bring that to the table. You have to be willing to utilize this history to
make new music. The people in this band do just that and still have a great time.

 The band currently performs in Southern California. Along with the jump and swing style songs, the band's sound tends to keep the dance floor full.   We like to entertain the people with our music.  It isn't unusual for the dance floor to
be filled with folks doing swing dancing in front of us.  It is all about having some fun and
enjoying a lively musical experience.  We aim to bring that energy every time we hit the

The thing about Blinded By The Blues is that we are just as comfortable playing small bars
as we are large festivals. We play just about every size stage imaginable.  Blues is the
music of the people.  If performed correctly, it touches your soul.
