VERSAILLES — Mick Blankenship, with Special Guest Mad Hatter, will be performing at the BMI Event Center in Versailles on Saturday, May 6.

Hailing from Cincinnati is the American Rock artist and multi-instrumentalist known as Mick Blankenship. Blankenship teamed up with producer John Moyer (bassist of multi-platinum Metal band Disturbed) to record his first full length album titled “Crown of Apathy” in February 2018. His first single “Transcend the Machine” received radio play in Europe as well as the United States. Blankenship teamed up again with Moyer in 2021 to record his second full length album titled “Madness in Shadows” and features Moyer on the album as a co-writer. The new album contains a ballad as well as some heavy hitters. His single “Rule the World” made the Independent charts in 2022 at No. 10 as well as No. 1 on Boston Rock radio four weeks in a row.

Blankenship released a cover of Michael Jackson’s “They Don’t Care About Us” in 2022 that went viral on Facebook and received over one million views.

Influenced by artists like Disturbed, Shinedown and Sevendust, it is sure to please a large audience.

Mad Hatter is a Dayton, Ohio, area rock cover band performing hits from the 1970s through the late 90s.
