In 1989, THE BLIND SIDE BAND, was born on the south side of Indianapolis, Indiana. In the beginning, Steve Chenowith, and his best friend Joe Phillips, thought they were going to be rock stars with their new band. They would write a few songs but that did not make the extra money and get them jobs at dances and bars that they wanted. Therefore, they decided to continue their adventure covering songs that others had sang before them. They enlisted some other musicians and they sang those cover songs, into the night and on weekends. For years, this continued until... Now, we jump to 2008, and THE BLIND SIDE BAND, is still playing cover songs written by others. However, something is different; they are also playing their own songs as well. Songs constructed by Steve and Joe and arranged by the current members of The Blind Side Band. The songs of everyday, about love and death, friendship and misgivings, these are the songs of the working class. Songs that you can sing after you have heard them. Songs that will stay with you and that you can relate to in your everyday life. The Blind Side Band, has been playing to audiences for nearly 20 years. The band has a new face with three new members. This is by far the best ensemble of musicians the band has ever had, and its one that will be sure to entertain audiences of 100 or 10,000.
