“One of the most exciting live bands at this moment is without a doubt ‘Black Market III’. It's around 3 years since we first saw them in action. We still remember vividly, the power they brought to the stage and we predicted a bright future for this band. Without surprise their debut album 'Songs That Shake The Cage' confirmed our beliefs.

We've seen them again recently, and frontman Scottie Blinn remains the master of his guitar. His infectious riffs and emotive solos are highly impressive.

Q: I wonder how the European tour was born? Such a great way to break out of the San Diego market as well as see the world!
A: This is my 15th tour here (Scottie Blinn), with versions of the Mississippi Mudsharks and the last 4 with Black Market III. It started in 1996 with two chart topping CD's on a German label's mail order division, followed up with more CD's charting in the top 5 for the company. After that, consistent touring and utilizing a growing contact list. Indeed, you can be a big fish in a small pond, or you can explore a big ocean ;-) Just NEVER give up your dreams and stay focused on the goals!!
