One Question Interviews: The Blind Shake

Jim Blaha (The Blind Shake)

SPB: What is my day job and how does it affect my schedule as a musician?

Blaha: Well, right now I work at a coffee shop on East Lake St. in Minneapolis. It's gold to me because the owner lets me tour whenever I need to. The shifts vary enough that I can be very flexible with my band in finding days to rehearse. It's also great because I can listen to what I want music-wise...I always stay inspired.
