Alligator Blackbird is performing live at The Garage Arcade Bar. The show starts at 9:00PM. $5 cover at the door. Alligator Blackbird’s music is derived from many influences across a diverse set of genres including folk, rock, pop, reggae, hip hop, and soul. Fusing acoustic guitar, bass, keyboard, ukulele, cajon, drums (and other percussion), along with vocal harmonies, and the dynamic/soulful voice of front man, Fabian Guzman, the band covers a broad range of musical ground. Taking root in South Bend, IN in 2009 but branching out regionally throughout Indiana, Michigan, and Illinois, the band has maintained a solid love affair with playing live to any audience that will hear them – big or small. Along with playing over 500 shows since inception, they have had the pleasure of supporting a variety of amazing artists including Grammy Nominee singer/songwriter Shawn Mullins, Muscle Shoals electronic/funk duo Boombox, The Pinstripes, Erin Zindle & the Ragbirds, and reggae legends The Wailers. Their first full length album, recorded as an acoustic trio with Fabian Guzman, Chris Keck, and Cory Miller, was released in 2011. Later in 2011, the band added a fourth member, Kevin “Keyz” Krizmanich, who also plays and records with Midwest Hype (Chicago, IL). Their second full length album was released in January 2015 and they have recently released two new singles, “Ms. K” and “Sierra Skye” in 2022.
