Harmonica Vic comes from a very musical family:  Uncle Djordje [George] was a well-known, world-wide nightclub singer and brother is the great "Harmonica Zeke."  Vic has always followed harmonica music, first learning to play from his mother who taught him simple melodies.  Vic incorporates the styles of Doc Watson, Sonny Boy Williamson I and II, Paul Butterfield, Jimmie Fadden and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, etc. into his performances.  He has shared the stage with Canada Juno winners, such as Dutch Mason and Vann "Piano Man" Walls, and has played regional festivals (Thomas Homestead Festival and Knowlton's Got the Blues [the forerunner to Mont Tremblant Blues Festival], and with country artist Jimmy Kaye, Harmonica Zeke, and legendary piano man Stan Szelest.  Vic sang on stage with Legendary "Odetta." He has led harmonica workshops. He was in Built for Comfort. Vic always puts 150% into his playing, whether the harmonica or the guitar, and he really masters his harp. He may look very serious, but he is happiest when he is performing! Vic's son is singer/songwriter/instrumentalist/recording artist, "Chris Nathan." 

Cinde provides harmonies, rhythm guitar, and lead vocals on a diverse compilation of songs from artists such as Ma Rainey, Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith, Odetta, Linda Ronstadt, Doc Watson, Little Walter, Brownie McGhee, Hank Williams Sr. and many more. Cinde turned to music at a  young age, singing in all-county and all-state chorus, church choir, then alt/rock/country bands, numerous weddings for friends and family, along with providing backup vocals at several local music studios.  ♥ Vic and Cinde met later in life ♥ both immediately smitten, and Vic began to teach Cinde how to play rhythm guitar at age 49. He also opened up an entire world of amazing folk and bluegrass music to her which has helped her grow as a musician and an artist.  Cinde has a son Bradd who is an amazing poet/lyricist and powerful vocalist (when you can coax him to sing). 

 Harmonica Vic & Cinde (nicknamed "The BluesBirds") 

Both being survivors of all kinds of life's adversities, bring a unique perspective and artistic expression into their performances and into their own compositions. "We are doing what we love, especially because we share it together."  They chose the name "Dark Road" after a song written by legendary bluesman, Mr Brownie McGhee.  Life is after all a road....and through its ups and downs, twists and turns, good and bad it leads us to ever ponder "what is light without dark..." (Legend 1985)

Keep the faith!
