All About Buford announces new members, and first gig

Postby AMalkoff » Thu Jun 23, 2005 6:07 pm

We are thrilled to announce the addition of two new members to All About Buford - the new incarnation, the rebirth, the beta version…you get the point!

Jason Harrod and Jaime Babstock both join us with varied and impressive musical and performance experience, and we look forward to a new sound and a great new show. Jason is an award-winning singer-songwriter from North Carolina (http://www.jasonharrod.com), who also spent several years as 1/2 of the acclaimed duo Harrod and Funck. Jaime is a vocalist from MA with experience that ranges from hip-hop to traditional theatre. Wes Carroll will remain as vocal percussionist, and will be supplemented by other killer vps, so each show will be a little different. We’ll be adding more instrument-ed tunes into the mix, and still doing a cappella stuff as well. In time, another person may be added…or not. We’re obviously still in the experimental stage, and just happy to be experimenting!

We’ve also been selected to be part of the prestigious Falcon Ridge Folk Festival (http://falconridgefolk.com) Emerging Artists Showcase (Hillsdale, NY). Of the hundreds of entries submitted, we were one of 24 acts chosen to perform on the main stage on Friday, July 22. Audience votes decide which one act will come back the next year as part of the regular lineup, and we get a little bit of exposure in front of a great crowd. So, yeah, *that’s* our first gig, and we plan to make the best of it! Ben Cohan (formerly Similar Jones) will be our vp for that gig, and we’ll be appearing around 5pm. The lineup for the rest of the festival is incredible (including Paul and Storm, and we hear Sean Altman will be present), so if you’re so inclined, come down to hear us – our first gig! Hey, Jason rearranged his west coast tour to be there, so come show some love!

Friday, July 22
Falcon Ridge Folk Festival
Long Hill Farm
Hillsdale, NY
