\\ JACKDAW
 

Jackdaw is a Celtic rock band from Buffalo, NY. After a night of "hanging and drinking" with Tim and George the idea of the band was formed and they started the idea to create a "Brick Throwing" Celtic Rock band, that was "Factory Born" and based on their Irish heritage and industrial South Buffalo area roots. The songs "Maggie" and "Raise a Glass" were penned during these first rehearsals. As the core members rehearsed, wrote and performed more, they decided they needed to search for additional players, in order to balance the "raw style" with the traditional "celtic sound." In 2006, a compilation of their first three albums and EPs entitled Brilliant, Sad & Guilty was released. The two-disc album included interviews, live tracks, and studio outtakes.Jackdaw won Buffalo's Best Rock Band (and on one occasion beating fellow nominee the Goo Goo Dolls), presented by the free publication Artvoice, in 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007. The band toured the eastern states extensively and Ireland, opened for Dropkick Murphys at Thursday at the Square. In July 2007, the band opened for Pete Best and his band at Club Infinity in Williamsville, NY.

\\ CRIKWATER
 

Rooted in the rustbelt Irish American neighborhood of South Buffalo, NY, Crikwater have become one of the leading Irish American Traditional Folk Bands in Western New York.  Boasting four multi-instrumentalists and an energetic live show, The pub-scene veterans offer up a mix of fiery fiddle tunes, rowdy pub sing-a-longs, elegant ballads & original songs, and their music conjures scenes of gritty smoke filled Irish pubs, whiskey, pints of stout, and good craic.
