Blind Boy Chocolate & The Milk Sheiks is a band that plays blues, ragtime, jazz or bluegrass in the style of the jug bands of the early twentieth century. These Guys started in the summer of 2009 as a three piece band with Dwight Hawkins, Nicholas Marshall and Antone Costa primarily featuring the wood saw, mandolin and guitar respectively.
