Bob Bakert is a regular performer at the Common Grounds Coffee House. Bob has a passion for music that is evident in all that he does. He has the kind of talent that only comes from a lifetime of dedication and practice. He has a wonderful voice, is extremely talented on guitar and is just an all-around great entertainer. Bob is very well connected and respected within the Atlanta music community. He has a life-long love of music and has returned to school to continue to study music and master his craft at Georgia State. Bob has been instrumental in keeping the Hungry Ear Coffee House going and we are eternally grateful that Bob was willing to help us get the Common Grounds Coffee House up and running. We couldn’t have done it without him.
Blackfoot Daisy formed in 2012 when long-time collaborators and songwriters Wendy DuMond and Don Sechelski decided to begin performing together on a regular basis. Don spent most of his early childhood in Texas and Wendy hails from Montana but grew-up in Oklahoma. They chose to name the band after a deer, drought, and pest-resistant prairie flower.
Don is a 30-plus year native of the Atlanta music scene and has also worked as a studio musician. He performed as a solo act and also performed with his son Adam Sechelski, at the Atlanta Dogwood Festival. Wendy began writing songs in 2009 and performing in 2012. As a duo, the band has played various venues in the Southeast, including Charles & Myrtle’s in Chattanooga, TN, Berkeley Bob’s Coffeehouse in Cullman AL, along with other venues in South Carolina and Georgia. Don’s son, Adam Sechelski will also sometimes join them at local Atlanta venues Smith’s Old Bar and the Red Light Café. The band has opened for Nashville songwriter, Kurt Fortmeyer; The Rosin Sisters; Copper into Steel; Vientos Del Pueblo, and Little Country Giants to name a few. They have also performed at Snellville Days, the Chastain Park Arts Festival, the Duluth Fall Festival, the Gram Parsons Guitar Pull and are currently performing this summer during the Little 5 Arts Alive concert series.
In November of 2015, Bobby Moore joined the band, rounding out the sound. Bobby is a native of Virginia, multi-instrumentalist, and award winning old-time fiddle and banjo player. Bobby took honors at the Old Time Fiddlers Convention in Galax, Virginia for bluegrass banjo in 1980 and bluegrass fiddle in 1992, 1993, 1994, 1998, 2002 and 2007.
The band released a three-song EP in 2015 and are currently working on a full-length album.
