Local Buffalo Musicians Debut New Original Band

Organ Fairchild will debut at new Buffalo hotspot Duende on February 15 at 6 p.m. The brand new band is comprised of veteran musicians Joe Bellanti, Corey Kertzie and Dave Ruch.

Since 1983 these Buffalo natives have performed numerous times together around the “jam band scene” including in groups like Wild Knights, Sonic Garden and Acoustic Forum.

Playing their own original music, the group will debut in traditional organ trio format consisting of an organ, guitar and drums, with bass parts being covered by the keyboardist’s left hand. Music enthusiasts can expect an updated take on this classic music setup with funky and syncopated sounds designed to get you moving.

“We’ve always had so much fun playing everyone else’s music that I guess it just didn’t occur to us to see what we could be creating ourselves,” said Ruch. “The music we’ve always played together has a fair amount of improvisation embedded in it, so that can satisfy a creative itch in itself. But we’ve NEVER had so much fun playing together as we are now, with our own tunes and ideas at the forefront.”

Fans can attend this debut event for free with the first 50 people through the doors receiving a Greg Meadows designed sticker.
