Blackbird was formed in early 2009 when Steve Redig and son, Gabriel, joined with bassist Ole Bentz and drummer Steve Vallee with the common goal of playing some of rock’s best classics across the Pacific Northwest. Knowing that the band’s appreciation for the Beatles’ catalog of songs was shared by so many people, they focused on a Beatles heavy song list that would allow the band to play a full 3 hours of live Beatles if requested – too bad they only have 1-1/2 hours on stage at the Salem Art Fair & Festival! After playing together for so long, all members of Blackbird enjoy sharing a stage with each other and it shows.
