The Blackbird Mafia is an arena sounding rock band with immense energy and a charisma seldom seen in today’s live music scene. Each member has extensive live and studio experience and a passion to perform the music they play the way you heard it the first time. This band pays homage to the Rock Titans of yesterday and captures the essence of those bands in their live performance. Why hire a tribute band that covers one band when you can hire a band that does all of them, creating an electric atmosphere with a stellar performance and audience participation? This band sings and plays on a professional level and has performed over 1000 combined shows. The Blackbird Mafia is available for any venue, corporate event or private party and the band has their own Lighting and PA for a complete live experience that will leave you spent! The Blackbird Mafia will make ya’ an offer ya’ can’t refuse ;-)
