Black Market III
Formed as a working side project by Scottie “Mad Dog” Blinn while in-between recording and touring with the Mississippi Mudsharks, Black Market III (which includes his partner, bassist Roxy Coverdale) released Dashboard Jesus in 2019. The album debuted at number 25 on the Roots Music Report’s Top 50 Contemporary Blues Chart, with the singles “When the Sun Goes Down” reaching number 32 and “Daddy Rollin’ Stone” hitting number 4, as reported to Living Blues Magazine. Its success enabled them to book a festival and club tour throughout Europe in late 2018, headlining Germany’s prestigious Blues Festival Lehrte, as well as Stadtfest Alfeld and Stadtfest Celle in Germany. They also played their first prison show in Belgium. Along with the King Taylor Project and Robin Henkel, they’re among the most oft-booked acts in town, appearing just about every week.
