By the age of six, Blair was already exploring his vocal capacity, by seven or eight he was banging on stuff, and, by age ten he had a drum set. Preteen years brought his first paid gigs. he continued performing throughout junior & senior high schools. from there, he toured the U.S. performing genres such as jazz, rock, disco, new wave, synth-pop -- with too many established and original acts to mention. He currently performs high energy dance music with central PA's Mama Tried.
He briefly studied privately with jazz greats 'Philly' Joe Jones and Billy Hart while performing & touring with renowned jazz keyboardist and composer Butch Cornell, as well as performing with Johnny Lytle, Richard 'Groove' Holmes, Cedric Lawson, and, Eddie McFadden.
Apart from articulation in drums and vocals, Blair also plays keyboards and composes music from time to time. Recently, he's performed on the new Linda Gail Lewis and Kenley Collins albums on Lanark Records (where he is a staff drummer). His latest live performances include those with Linda Gail, Chubby Checker, Quentin Jones/RARC of Lanark Records, Charlie Gracie, Rustoleum, The Jeff Calvin Group, Sam Hill, and now the effervescent, lively Mama Tried.
