"The music is as rustic and lilting as you’d expect from a classic folk group, while still maintaining the group punk side" - buffaBLOG 2017
Molded by the DIY punk scene, founders Victor Castillo (ex-Lancer) and Trevor Jennings sought to utilize guitar and cajon to create a sound unique to the scene while avoiding the heavy gear load and venue limitations. Drawing inspiration from acts like Against Me! & Mischief Brew, the duo prided themselves on providing "Honest & Unforgiving Folk Punk."
However... bloody fingers, an expensive tab of new guitar strings, and the fear of damaged vocal chords shifted the bands original sound slightly. Now drawing inspiration from old folk, country, and bluegrass records, the band headed into a new direction and quickly recorded and self-released The Rust Belt Brigade. A unique blend of Punk Influenced Folk/Americana.
They soon expanded by adding long time friend and fan Jeremiah Franco on Banjo. As a trio, the act began extensively playing the Buffalo area testing out old and new material on fans before recording "Rhythm & Roll" - an 8 track release of their most reactive and polished tunes. Another close friend, Brandon Mueckl finalized the lineup on Acoustic Bass, firmly locking in their FolkGrass/Americana sound somewhere on the spectrum of The Devil Makes Three & The Avett Brothers.
