One fine spring evening Marty invited some friends out to his place for a good old fashioned blues jam. A drummer, guitarist, bass player, and a few other friends just hanging out, making music and having a good time. The next time a few more people showed up and some more songs were tried. Before long, a nucleus of players began to get together regularly and work up a dedicated song list. It started with the blues, but before long we added rock, pop, and even a few country tunes to the mix. While we still have a solid rock and blues feel, anything is fair game.
Since our first humble beginnings in Marty's Man Cave, we have played at many different venues, from Sturgeon Bay to Manitowoc, and many points in between. Everywhere we play people have a great time and they can tell that we do this for the pure enjoyment of it. With professional sound reinforcement and state of the art lighting, our production is top notch, and the guys in this band know how to keep people entertained. No long breaks, or rude and out of control band members to worry about. Just great musicians having a great time and keeping the party going!
Some of the places where we have played:
Rock 'n' Blues Haus - Manitowoc
Fox Hills Resort - Mischicot
Jackson Point Pub and Grill - Seymour
The Linebacker - Manitowoc
The Waverly - Two Rivers
Big Apple Pub & Grill - Manitowoc
The Ten - O - One Club - Green Bay
Tisch Mills Fireman's Festival
Stone Harbor Resort - Sturgeon Bay
Come and meet the band...
Marty "Skin!" Scheuer, Sr.
Marty is our fearless leader and front man handling the majority of the vocal duties for Blind Ambition. A true veteran of the local music scene, with over 30 years of drumming experience, Marty has recently gotten back into playing live music again in a big way with Blind Ambition. Over the years Marty has played with many different groups, most recently with the Annie Rose Band, and the Rod Scheuer Group. Often mistaken for Uncle Sam or Santa, Marty likes to spice things up on stage - ask him about his chicken!
Keith "Trebek" VanDen Heuvel
Handling the guitar duties in Blind Ambition is Keith "Trebek" VanDen Heuvel. As a player for over 30 years, Keith has been in more than a few local bands. He has most recently played with the Annie Rose Band, and Mercury Rising among others. Keith also shares some of the vocal duties with Skin and belts out a mean Bon Scott. He also likes to build all of his gear, from guitars, to amps, to effects (rumor has it he is trying to wind his own strings). Just don't get him started talking guitars, he will not stop!
Andy Paulin is laying down the bottom end for Blind Ambition on the bass guitar. Andy comes to Blind Ambition with decades of playing experience. He missed playing with Keith and Marty in a few bands that we have all been a part of, but now he shares the stage with the other BA members. You may have seen him playing with local bands such as The Deweys, and with the Annie Rose Band, among others.
