The Blackberry Belles are a musical trio consisting of Tony Blankenship, Alison Krayer, and Jesse Hooper. This self-dubbed garage sould band formed in Washington, D.C. and recently released a self-titled EP. Through their bluesy, soul sound, the band evokes a sense of times past. While the band commonly tours throughout the D.C. and Baltimore metro area, they are no strangers to Fort Reno's stage, having performed here last summer. The Blackberry Belles have also performed during the Girls Rock! D.C. showcase at the 9:30 Club for the past two summers.
