Buffalo Wabs & The Price Hill Hustle
Buffalo Wabs & The Price Hill Hustle is a Cincinnati based, 4 piece Americana/Folk band that blends the tradition of heroes like Woody Guthrie and Mississippi John Hurt w/ contemporary flavor. In its short existence, the band has grown its fan base by getting out in front of folks. Whether it’s the great variety of local shows or their regional touring, the always bring high energy onto every stage they perform on. Buffalo Wabs (aka Matt Wabnitz) spearheads this group, playing guitar and taking most of the vocal duties. Casey Campbell, Ian Mathieu, and Scott Risner comprise The Price Hill Hustle side of the equation. The group is deeply rooted in the tradition of Old Time pioneers; however, the energy they bring to a live performance could burn down the rowdiest honky-tonk in town.

The Young Heirlooms
Kelly Fine and Chris Robinson have been captivating audiences in the Mid-West region for the past three years. Their soaring harmonies have silenced and tamed crowds of varying textures. Focused musicianship shines in every element of their songwriting. Young Heirlooms’ name articulates their style and take on their fusioned genre. Young alludes to the modern spin on the traditional sound of folk music. Heirlooms are items or ideologies handed down from generation to generation. Young Heirlooms’ music has a sound that is handed down from a bygone era, loved for its history, but remains in a new contemporary setting. A mixture of pop-folk and americana songwriting begin to describe the unique style of Young Heirlooms.
