Blind Mule are BACK!!

BM banner TAH Oct 22, 2015
Hey Folks,

Blind Mule called it a day last year after 7 years of touring, playing festivals and lots of shows with some great acts, and I guess the 7 year itch caught up to us, as members were having babies, and life in general was just getting really fast paced and taking new direction for all of us, so we decided to take an indefinite hiatus, with no idea if we would ever play again.

An offer came in from Mark Wilson of Come Together Music Festival for us to play during the Labour Day weekend on Sat, Sept 5, and all the guys said sure, lets play a reunion show and then go back to our lives, but after a really good couple practices, we decided to give it another go, and play some more shows and finally work on putting out a professional album in 2016.

Our hometown comeback show is Thurs, Oct 22 at This Ain’t Hollywood, so we hope to see you all there for some dancing fun, and we are supporting a double CD Release show for Jenny Ritter and David Newberry, hope to see you there!!

Blind Mule is calling it quits, but not before their last 7 shows!!

Hey Folks,

After 7 years of touring, playing festivals, and countless new members coming and going, Blind Mule is calling it quits, but not before they play their last 7 shows, to give their fans some fun times on the dance floor.

Below are the final dates for Blind Mule, hope you can make it out to give the guys a good farewell, before they start new musical projects, or focus more of their time on their other musical projects.

BLIND MULE’S LAST 7 SHOWS…
Sat, Mar 15 – Norfolk Tavern – Port Dover, ON
Sat, Mar 29 – Zanders – Brantford, ON
Fri, Apr 11 – Two Doors Down – Brantford, ON
Fri, May 2 – Paddy Flaherty’s – Sarnia, ON
Sat, May 3 – Sealed Art – Hamilton, ON
May 16-18 – Come Together Music Festival – Durham, ON
Sat, May 31 – Clarkson Pub – Barrie, ON

They want to thank all of the talent buyers that helped them out along the way, all of the festivals that made them feel like superstars, all of the past members in the band that helped make the last 7 years a fun roller coaster ride of an experience, and most importantly, all of the fans and friends who brought the energy to each show, to help bring the band to life, and they are hoping you will all make it out to one of their last shows, before it is time for a new beginning.
