Performance | Crows and Jays and Folkfaces in The Front Yard
Friday, July 11, 2014, 5:30–7:30 pm
Crows & Jays is an Indie Folk/Rock quartet. Classic Americana merges with Indie-Rock as three-part harmonies emphasize the lyrics in original songs. Formed in fall of 2012 and they have already made headway in the music scene, opening for national touring act: The Whigs just three months after forming. They have worked with After Dark Productions and have headlined major Buffalo venues including Waiting Room and 9th Ward as well as many other locals venues throughout Western New York. Their debut EP 'Play for the Trees' was released in February 2013 - an EP focused on conservation and traditions. While their full-length album 'Indian Falls' is harmony-driven in both verse and chorus and focuses on more personal experiences of the band.
The Folkfaces are a Buffalo-based band with a plethora of musical tastes and interests. Folkface music is a blend of blues, ragtime, bluegrass, folk (obviously), jazz, punk, rockabilly, and more. Tyler is the youngster of the group and brings a mighty guitar pickin punch to the group in addition to writing the group's topical originals. His distinct style of picking is full of youthful energy and precision. Richie plays a mean harmonica and is always looking to improve and expand his technique. We have two new(ish) members Dan Borodzik is a local songwriter reminiscent of Bob Dylan or Neil Young recruited for his impressive dobro slide guitar technique as well as song writing talents. Dan Schwach is a high energy percussionest blending grooves from blues, jazz, and jugband rhythms with full kit or just a washboard.
