Welcome to the official website for Blackie and the Rodeo Kings...the band otherwise known as B.A.R.K.
Blackie & the Rodeo Kings originally formed in 1996 when Colin Linden, Stephen Fearing and LEe HARVeY OsMOND came together to record what was suppose to be a one- off tribute album to the great Canadian songwriter Willie P. Bennett...the rest is history!
As promised Blackie and The Rodeo Kings deliver the companion to their 2011 collaboration album KINGS and QUEENS. While KINGS and QUEENS featured guest appearances from some of the band’s favourite female singers, this album, titled KINGS and KINGS features some of the band’s best “guy” friends from the world of roots, blues and country. Each one of them an accomplished KING in their realm of creative endeavours and in many cases absolute KING legends in the entertainment industry.
Brothers, fathers, heroes, friends, collaborators, peers…
"Kings and Kings brought us together with all of them…in the same spirit that we formed this band--by accident and with divine providence--we were blessed with visitations from some of the greatest artists in music today." - Colin Linden
