Formed as a working side project by Scottie 'Mad Dog' Blinn while in between recording and touring with the multi nominated and award winning iconic San Diego band The Mississippi Mudsharks, and while producing another new project featuring Roxy and Haley called 'Rag & Bone'. Black Market Baby has quickly turned into a red hot band focused on playing hard hitting, soulful Blues and American Roots with reverence to all the original Blues men and women.
Originals and covers. Clubs to larger venues to festivals. "Brushes & snare" gigs to all out Rock concerts.
Black Market Baby crosses over, using the Blues as the root of the sound and featuring more obscure covers from Tom Waits, Wayne Walker, Hank Williams Sr., Leadbelly, Dead Weather, Social Distortion, and many more . No pigeon holing this band--Blues and American Roots firmly planted, yet not like anything you've heard or seen before.
Scottie 'Mad Dog' Blinn--front man for the Mississippi Mudsharks with multiple San Diego Music Awards and nominations, European blues chart topping CD's, as well as 20 years of experience gigging, recording, and touring the States and Europe.
Roxy Coverdale--rock solid bassist discovered by Scottie 'Mad Dog' Blinn. Roxy's vocals are a perfect compliment to Scottie's, and she lays down the foundation for the band's sound.
Haley Allen--at 22 years of age is already an accomplished pro and is in demand by many local SD bands. Haley keeps the beat right in the pocket, her attitude is on fire, and she gives the old classics and BMB originals a shot of adrenaline.
Depending upon the event and venue, a fourth 'Special Guest' will be joing BMB on the show.
