Special Blend is a 3 piece group with a unique sound composed of ska,punk,reggae,rock, and blues. This sound and constantly shifting style of play comes from a group of guys who feel there is too much good music going on to be limited to one genre. Sons of Local guitar legend and entertainer Joe Calautti, Dom and Sal grew up with a vast knowledge and amazing instructor of guitar learning fundamentals/styles in Metal,Blues,Punk,and classic rock. Ray Scavelli (aspiring bassist and Dom's best friend)with a grandfather of 47 years in National Symphony Orchestra and grandmother of 30+ years in the Choral Arts Society of Washington, was going to find his place in music as well when he and Dom began jamming together. Watching and studying bands such as Sublime, Hendrix, SRV and Blink 182 closely and recruiting Sal as a self taught drummer of 4 years, The Band formed to start what would become a fast-paced high energy group with no two similar songs in their original repetoire.
