UPCOMING LIVE MUSIC

Leroy Townes
Americana

Friday, October 3
Show at 8:00pm (Come early for Dinner!)

Leroy Townes shoots a love of American mythology through the murky, whiskey-addled current of roots rock. Forged around harmony guitar riffs and strong reaching melodies, the band has written and self-produced three records: "Country Visions" (2005), "Leroy Townes" (2009) and "Little Bit of Light" (2012). In addition to opening for some legendary acts (Sara Lee Guthrie, Yarn, Three Dog Night, Blue Radio, Chris Knight), Leroy Townes has added two Buffalo Music Hall of Famers to their lineup: Ray Hangen on drums and Jim Whitford on pedal steel and dobro.

Originally from Wellsville, NY, Leroy and the boys are currently calling Buffalo home and enjoying the warm Yankee welcome. Wherever they go, however, their hearts remain in the rolling hills and winding river of Allegany County. Their sound was born there and their inspiration remains. Check out their music free on Spotify and iTunes and if you like it, buy a record or two. Better yet, come on out and see them play live and join the growing following of “RoosterHeads" who love American music and like to have a good time.

"Leroy Townes is some kinda heavy. As a songwriter, he paints the kinds of scenes that are impossible for two people to picture in the same way - so subtle and timeless is his imagery. As a singer, he has a feel for pulling in the listener with a mellow mood only to punch them at the perfect time. The result of all this is an awestruck audience..." -Seamus Gallivan, THEGOODNEIGHBORHOOD.COM

"...a tight band with a clear objective, a screaming locomotive with all pistons firing..." CDBaby.com
