The Cincinnati-based ensemble Buffalo Wabs (as in ‘mobs’) and the Price Hill Hustle can be best described as ‘American’– from the mountains to Music Row, blues-gospel to traditional country, the Hustle combines parts of the American-born genre catalogue to create an energetic experience every single night.
This four-piece moves from fast-paced, foot-stomping anthems to harmony-laden ballads and traditional dirges of spirit and labor. “The group started around the love of music that moves you,” says drummer/vocalist and band spokesman, Casey Campbell. “The music accompanies the story; and sometimes the music is the story by which we can all connect to one another.”
The members of Buffalo Wabs and the Price Hill Hustle are:
Matt Wabnitz aka Buffalo Wabs – Lead guitar, lead vocal.
Casey Campbell aka The Deacon – Drums/percussion, vocal
Scott Risner aka The Kentucky Waterfall – Mandolin, vocal, resonator guitar, tenor banjo
Bill Baldock aka Bullseye Bill – Upright bass, vocal
Born on the banks of the Ohio River, Oyo formed from jam sessions in the back of Marietta’s JustAJar Design Press. Gathered around a single mic, their high-energy performances are equal parts honky tonk and barn dance, with an indie-rock sensibility.
