Blind Pigeon Records

BPR & the CRO

CRO Flies is proud to announce that we are teaming up with Blind Pigeon Records (BPR)!  After a few discussions, and a few beers, Bill Whalen (Co-founder of BPR) and the CRO are very excited to start working together on future videos and events incorporating the very talented Rock and Roll bands on this record label.

BPR’s Mission Statement:

Blind Pigeon Records represents a decade-old effort of promoting and sustaining local, original Rock and Roll. Formed in 2000 by three musicians seeking an outlet to collectively issue their recorded music, the Pottsville, Pennsylvania-based label has since released over 25 full-length recordings and 10 annual compilation albums bolstering its growing roster of local and regional artists. With the majority of all recording, artwork and video production taking place in-house, BPR is a DIY, grass-roots project designed to embody the creativity of all artists involved.

These guys are not only extremely talented but they are a blast to be around. I’ve been to countless shows over the years and they are always a good time.  Nothing beats great tunes and cold beverages… well except for great tunes, cold beverages and fly fishing.  Make sure you check out BPR’s website to learn a little more about them, to book a show, and to purchase some music for your trips to and from the stream!

Here is a playlist I have on Spotify featuring just a few great tunes that BPR has to offer.  Give them a listen… you won’t regret it:
