Since 2010, Rosh & The Blind Cafe Orchestra has specialized in performing in the complete and total pitch dark at Blind Cafe events across the USA. Rosh, an American songwriter, born in Boston, MA, stumbled upon a temporary 'cafe in the dark' while on tour in 2007 in Reykjavik Iceland. It was so dark, he could not even see his hands in front of his face. It was then that he dreamed up the idea of creating positive social change experiences in the dark, intended to help people 'see' their world from a new perspective.
In 2010, the first Blind Cafe event was launched with the formation of The Blind Cafe Orchestra accompanying Rosh's original songwriter music. The Blind Cafe Orchestra is an evolving and rotating group of musicians, consisting of bass, piano, female vocals, and more! If you’re really lucky, you’ll get to catch Rosh & BCO with cello, violin & viola. This rare and unique approach to listening to music in the dark, with an array of various instrumentation, has led them to perform for over 20,000 people in the dark since 2010.
