Wednesday Night Concert with the Skiffle Minstrels


Buffalo, NY –


With their energetic blend of hillbilly, honky-tonk, and rockabilly, the Skiffle Minstrels have become Western New York favorites and winners of three consecutive ArtVoice Best of Buffalo Awards. At every show, the band tears through classics by Hank Williams Sr., Johnny Cash, Buck Owens, Bill Monroe, Louis Jordan, and more - but don't be surprised if you also hear a few Beatles tunes, a favorite from Cole Porter, a Zydeco number, or even a little Kurt Weil. The Skiffles, who adopt on-stage personas like "Skeet Willie" and "Pinky Rez," are also known for their crowd-pleasing banter and audience interaction.
