If there’s any wonder why cover bands have played a consistent part in nightlife scenes over the years, one needn’t look any further than the 1960s and ’70s. The sheer wealth of outstanding music to come out of those decades is truly staggering, which explains why it’s that era so often mined by bands to this day. One such cover band is Blind Facsimile, its name offering a winking acknowledgement of attempting to do justice to such amazing artists as the Beatles, Aretha Franklin, Van Morrison, Steely Dan and a slew of others. The six fantastic musicians in Blind Facsimile might just make you think you’re hearing the real thing.
