Rosh, an American singer-songwriter, attended a dark cafe in Reykjavik, Iceland while on tour in 2007. After engaging socially in the dark, he designed an intimate music listening and dinner experience in 100% darkness, music performed by his band Rosh & the Blind Cafe Orchestra. In 2010, Rosh met Rick Hammond, a blind poet and Richie Flores, a blind singer-songwriter and invited them to contribute a blind awareness Q&A to the program. And so the social impact Q&A with legally blind staff completed The Blind Cafe Experience.
