Surprise Package

Robert Bradley's Blackwater Surprise lives to challenge its audience, bandleader says

Of all the people Bradley has collaborated with, however, he seems to like his present band best -- guitarist Matt Ruffino, bassist Tom Wilber, keyboardist Randy Sly and drummer Jeff Fowlkes join Bradley onstage. And Bradley wants to make it clear that Blackwater Surprise's brief flirtations with the big time in the late 1990s didn't mean that much to him. He has no interest in the "little teeny pop stations" that make and break stars. "We all know how that shit gets on there. And I don't have that kind of money. Everybody knows what that is, know what I'm saying? As long as I can get out there and continue to tour, I'm not going to worry about no radio, I'm not going to worry about MTV, VH1, none of that."

Forward progress: Robert Bradley's Blackwater Surprise marches through American tradition.
