Blind Lemon can trace its roots back to the late 80's when guitarist Nick McCarthy started the band with some other local musicians under the name 'Full Circle'. After a short period of time current drummer Danny Koisser joined followed a year or so later by Tim Pickering on Sax. The band also featured a bass player/vocalist a rythm guitarist and harmonica player. The band name was changed to 'Blind Lemon' in this period. The name came from a nickname given to Nick McCarthy by the then singer.
After a couple of year playing the local pub scene the bass player, rythm guitarist and harmonica player left the band. After a short search the current vocalist Mark Pearsall and bassist Rich Morgan joined the line up. This lineup remained constant for around 7 years when the decision was taken to recruit a keyboard player. Rob Allen joined the band and stayed for a further 6 years and then decided to move away. After a short period with stand in players our current keyboardist Andrew Stelmasiak joined.
