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, Illinois, and Wisconsin, 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 450 shows since inception, they have had the pleasure of opening up for a variety of amazing artists including Grammy Nominee singer/songwriter Shawn Mullins, the electronic/funk duo “Boombox”, ska/reggae up and comers “The Pinstripes”, and reggae legends “The Wailers.”
