Front Row: Buffalo Killers

Canal Street Tavern, 4/29/11

Buffalo Killers

There once was a time when you could turn on a Top 40 radio station and actually hear songs that you liked – songs that you knew you would listen to for as long as you lived. There was a time when musicians wrote their own songs, played their own instruments – and sounded good. That time was the ‘70s, and the music was rock ’n’ roll. Buffalo Killers are classic rock in the best sense of the word. Their sound is timeless. Their harmonies are spot-on. Their hooks penetrate the subconscious until the whole crowd hums along. The Gabbard Brothers (BK’s guitarist and bassist) have a true knack for the craft of songwriting. Buffalo Killers are the best band in Ohio and if you missed their show at Canal Street Tavern on April 29, then you better have a damn good excuse. You better have a doctor’s note. Opening the set was Columbus’ the Main Street Gospel, another band with roots affectionately planted in the ‘70s. Gospel and BK believe in what they do – they are preachers of rock’s holy Word. Their conviction is paying off – Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach recently produced both bands’ albums. If the reigning king of rock is taking notice, maybe you should too.
