The San Francisco band Blind Willies plays an eclectic blend of folk, blues, Americana, and rock, plus original songs, and will take the stage at 8:30 p.m. Saturday at the Bike.

Led by singer-songwriter Alexei Wajchman, Blind Willies features Misha Khalikuov (cello), Alex Nash (drums), Daniel Riera (bass, flute) and Max Miller-Loran (keyboard, trumpet).

The band members met while attending the San Francisco School of the Arts. Accomplished across diverse genres such as rock, jazz, classical, world and hip-hop, the band has forged a dynamic and unique sound that reflects the deeply resonant American musical traditions of each player.

Blind Willies recently toured Ireland, England, Holland, Belgium and Germany and will release their fourth album this year. Members of Blind Willies also perform with Rupa and the April Fishes, George Watsky, Jazz Mafia, and Kev Choice Ensemble.

This is a free, all-ages, show until 11 p.m., then 21 and older.
