Formed in the Fall of 2011 by Scottie ‘Mad Dog’ Blinn, former front man for the iconic, multi-award winning San Diego band The Mississippi Mudsharks. He has been no stranger to doing 300+ nights a year with his former band, and is pushing Black Market III every bit as hard, if not harder. BMIII crosses over, using the Blues as the root of the sound. In addition to their original music, BMIII features 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. The band prides itself on it's ability to perform diversely and dynamically, playing full blown concerts to small 'stripped down' semi-acoustic shows, traditional blues to their trademarked ‘Grease Punk’ sound.

Hot Roux hails from Ventura, CA, and has been a local favorite for the last several years.

HOT ROUX is always rooted in rhythm and harmony. Whether toe tapping or all out dancing they’re guaranteed to make your feet move!
Orphan Jon and The Abandoned is an American Roots & Blues band from the Central Coast of California. OJATA is quickly becoming a go to band because of the high ...energy and passion they display while performing. Roots and Blues is their life blood, and it shows in their ever popular originals; and the few selective covers, they bring to every show. It is the bands goal to captivate the audience from the first note struck until the last chord is played while entertaining them both musically and visually. OJATA simply put, is a very unique band. Unique in that they express themselves in such a way; that’s so different, that many have said after seeing them perform live, they’ve never seen nor heard anyone like them before. They are a rare breed full of spirit and charisma, and they put on a show that is both energetic and captivating with a tight sound like no other.
