Blackwater '64 is a rock n' roll band from St Louis, MO.
Combining the best elements of American blue collar music, Blackwater '64 plays stripped down twangy Midwestern rock that is heavily blues influenced. Prior to the band's formation, lead singer/writer and guitarist Ben Martsolf performed the band's songs under the name Ben Martsolf and The Six Shooters as an alt-country band. After adding drummer George Fiorini and bassist Aaron Bickel, Blackwater '64 was chosen as a new name. The guys added Aaron Peipert on Bass making the band a four piece, and switched Bickel's duties on instruments. Aaron Bickle now plays lead guitar. Ben Martsolf comes from former bands: It's All About The Benjamins and Death Medicine. Aaron Bickel formerly played in the band One Down. George Fiorini played drums for Mouthbreather and Sonny Morgan. Aaron Peipert formally played bass in the band Whisperwall.
