Blind Tiger, a name taken from the prohibition-era secret bars, is a band who reinvigorates contemporary songs with a cool, quirky twist. Imagine a shot of jazz, a splash of latin, a glug of 1950s New York, and you'll be getting into the swing of things. All members are experienced musicians hailing from America to Accrington, and have worked professionally with artist such as; KT Tunstall, Ed Sheeran, Turin Brakes, Curtis Stigers, Grammy award winning songwriter/producer Eliot Kennedy (Bryan Adams, Celine Dion, Spice Girls), The Animals, Steve Cropper (Booker T and The MG's), Paul Heaton (Beautiful South), Plan B, Spencer Davis, Eric Shenkman (Spin Doctors), Janet Devlin (X-Factor), an appearance on Later with Jools Holland and most recently, live on Blue Peter with The Mend! Smaller line-ups are available on request (i.e. 2/3/4-pieces). Please get in touch with your ideas, thoughts or queries; we'd be happy to discuss your unique arrangements!

I am completely overwhelmed by the performance that the band has made. They really form an excellent one and I should say the best one that came in North West part of England ever since 1973. The way they choose songs and their performance too are breathtaking. I just love the way this band performed and really would like to suggest that they should be part of any great events. They are the ones who really understand the kind of music that touches every kind of people. If you have never ever enjoyed their performance then it is really not a good sign and should spare sometime for that.

This band really deserves a good amount of appreciation. They are finest musicians of their type in the country. They are also highly sophisticated and also talented. Their performance can only be defined as something full of energy. The lively music and the unique setup they have made suit them well for both parties and also chill out environments. They are real entertainers.
