One of Nashville’s hottest alt-country/roots rock bands, Flying Buffaloes, are preparing to descend on Birmingham, AL in celebration of the one-year anniversary of their critically-acclaimed debut album, LOADED & ROLLIN‘. The band will deliver their signature high-voltage live performance set at Avondale Brewery (201 41st St), opening for Winston Ramble on March 12 at 7:30 p.m. (doors at 6 p.m.). Advance tickets are $15 through Event Brite or $20 at the door. For more information on the show, please visit the Avondale Brewery website.
Called a “collective of rip-roaring Americana players” by Mother Church Pew, Flying Buffaloes are best described as the Allman Brothers meets the Eagles. Straddling the line between country and rock, the group served as the opening act for Red Dirt Country artist, Wade Bowen, as well as the hard-driving rock band, Drivin N Cryin.
The group earned the attention of media outlets like HuffPost, Pop Matters, Glide Magazine, and AXS.com, the sonically tight, five-piece high-energy group cut its musical teeth along Nashville’s famed neon strip (a.k.a. “Lower Broad”) and is now on the “first-call” list for Music City’s hottest venues and showcases, including Legend’s Corner, The Local, Mercy Lounge, Exit/In, Basement East, Loser’s Whiskey Jam, and Tin Roof’s Bus Call. Additionally, mainstream radio play on stations including Nashville’s Lightning 100 and Chicago’s Big 95.5 bode well for the future of the band.

Vandoliers – American Alternative Country from Dallas TX
An alt-country band with punk roots, Vandoliers put a rough-edged spin on Texas music. It’s twang and tattoos, grit and guitars, honky-tonk and horns, Tejano and Telecasters. It’s Vandoliers.
Sylvia Rose Novak – Folk Rock / Americana from Birmingham AL
“A TINY WOMAN WITH A HUGE PRESENCE.”
Sylvia Rose Novak has been called “a musician in a class all her own”. Whether she’s fronting her band as her own bass player, producing her own albums, or improvising five-part fiddle arrangements, it’s hard to deny that Novak is not your average songwriter.
