The Unknown was formed smack dab in the sweet spot, 1987. A mainstay on the Florida’s west coast, the truly AOR band started gaining a following with each show played which then yielded bigger and bigger gigs. They were eventually asked to play spring break gigs in Ft. Lauderdale, one of the biggest draws for college students. There was a theory behind this…The Unknown drew lots and lots of girls to their shows and the boys would follow…the band was untouchable and could play anywhere they wanted on the Florida scene.
In 1989, The Unknown released their first and only album “Big Dreams”…a true gem that now fetches about $150 on ebay – but know you can get the remastered version of it for a normal price thanks to FnA Records.
The band won the Budweiser Battle of the bands and A&R scouts started taking notice. Eventually EPIC Records signed the band in 1992, but had the band change their name…they were now known as Blackfish…who released a major album release, although be it as grunge worked its way in and AOR/melodic rock was ushered out.
