Butchers Blind formed in 2009 in Bellerose, New York. Pete Mancini, Paul Cianciaruso, Brian Reilly, and Christopher Smith came together through mutual friends and a shared love of music. In 2011, they signed with Paradiddle Records and released two critically acclaimed LP's – Play For The Films (2011), and Destination Blues (2013). The albums garnered the band glowing reviews and radio airplay around the world. Constant live shows and regional touring have cemented the band's reputation as a solid live act.
Their latest release, A Place In America, expands on their established Americana roots sound and venture into new sonic territories.
Butchers Blind has opened for Blues Traveler, Gin Blossoms, Pure Prairie League, Steve Forbert, Robbie Fulks, James Maddock, Iain Matthews, Turin Brakes, and Marah.
