The Blank Stairs are a pop & rock band made up Central Illinois teenagers. (Abbey Haste, Josh Sweeney and Cami Proctor)
Though none of us live in the same town or go to the same school, our love of music and performing has brought us together. We have been playing as a band since the summer of ‘17.
The Blank Stairs have had a blast playing at various venues and festivals across the area. We have performed at the Heart of Illinois Fair, Thunder Valley Jam Sessions, Peoria Riverfront Market, The Peoria Chiefs game, Peoria Food Truck Festival, Washington Fine Arts Festival, block parties, church events, and more. We have been featured as a musical guest on Bradley University's student run news show. Our original songs "Call Again Please" and "The Weekend" were played on WWCT 99.9's Local Music Showcase!
We have opened for nationally touring bands including Goose, Lovelytheband, The Accidentals and The Way Down Wanderers.
We love playing together and look forward to more opportunities in the future!
Our creative and ever changing setlist includes a diverse mix of pop and rock that spans the decades (many songs from before we were born!) Included in our repertoire are cover-tunes from artists such as Red Hot Chili Peppers, Journey, Pilot, Arctic Monkeys, and 21 Pilots, just to name a few. We have a blast playing covers, but, most important to us as a band at this point is our original music. Our single, The Weekend, was released in early 2019. We are working hard to release our first album soon.
