BlackList / Bio

Originated in Jefferson, TX in 1995 and migrated to Dallas in early 2000. Based on a power house trio configuration, Blacklist administers a hard dose of reality. Founding members Dave Little, John Rainer (bass), and David Wyatt (drums) cut their teeth in the East Texas/Shreveport blues scene before bringing the band to Dallas. They quickly established themselves on the underground blues jam scene in Dallas, becoming the house band for the Scorpion Motorcycle Club of Dallas. After putting in their time as the Hall Street Wrecking Crew, the boys got an appetite for a heavier sound and BlackList was born. We completed our first recording, “The Black EP”, in 2004. Over the years John and David W had to leave due to education and careers, but Christopher "Hillbilly" Bowling (drums from 2004-2011) and Tony Smith (bass from 2007-2012) stepped in. Dave, Tony and Hillbilly recorded our first full-length album A Long Time Coming in 2010. A year later Hillbilly had to leave the band due to health and family issues, but luckily founding member David Wyatt was willing and able to step back in on the drums. In September 2012 Tony stepped down and we came full circle by welcoming back original bassist John Rainer. BlackList is ready to build on the foundations we have laid over the years while still expanding our sound. WE AIN'T DONE YET!!!!!!
