Black Market III's New CD & Tour
There are a lot of positive things going on with us in Black Market III right now. Our first CD, 'Songs That Shake The Cage' was just nominated 'BEST ROCK ALBUM' by the San Diego Music Awards, and was named in the 'Top 5 CD's of 2012' by San Diego Rock'n'Roll!
We are set to release our follow up CD, 'Black Roses'. We will do a California and Nevada tour, then immediately follow up with a 5 week European tour starting in September and going until November 2013. The local San Diego release of the CD will be in November 2013.
We have contributed to several bands helping finance their dreams and goals, but now it is our turn to ask for your help. We would like to ask you to be a part of our team and share in our dreams and goals. Donations would be used for the extensive travel expenses incurred by international touring, and the manufacturing of the new CD. Please support us, independent music, and the arts!
Black Market III--formed by Scottie "˜Mad Dog' Blinn, front man for the multi-award winning iconic San Diego band The Mississippi Mudsharks. Black Market III has quickly turned into a red hot band focused on playing hard hitting, soulful Blues, American Roots, and Rock (the vein of Social Distortion and the Clash). BMIII is being touted as "the band to watch" by Dave Good of the San Diego Reader, and was nominated for 2012 and 2013 San Diego Music Awards.
Their first full length CD, "˜Songs That Shake The Cage' (nominated BEST ROCK ALBUM by the 2013 San Diego Music Awards), was released in the summer of 2012, accompanied by European and U.S. touring and playing shows with the likes of Rick Derringer and Roni Lee (The Runaways). It was named as one of the "top 5 CD's 2012" by SD Rock "˜n' Roll and has received airplay worldwide.
The band is currently preparing for the release of their 2nd CD, "Black Roses", and a 5 week Fall European tour.
