Bobby Angel live in the 9th Ward with M.E.L, Katie Ann and Randle and the Late Night Scandals!
Local Buffalo, N.Y. and Allentown resident Bobby Angel has been entertaining audiences with his expressive, soulful blend of Blues/Rock-Alt.Folk/Country tunes for the past 12 plus years. You may know Bobby from one of the several Open-Mic nights he has hosted throughout the city in past years, his famed yard parties, Nietzsche’s, DBGB’s, Pollywogg Holler or perhaps one of his Infringement Festival shows. Several penned ballads from Bobby’s debut CD release feature sweltering, harmonica-soaked solos and brassy lyrics that call for truth and seek justice, while warning those innocent souls of the constant dangers in the competitive and often heartbreaking world through which we live and travel. Bobby’s debut release titled “Taste the Clouds” and featured track “The Million Stars” warns of “Star-stealers” who pocket your dreams; leaving you feeling stranded and alone, empty- handed and “living without light inside the darkness,” while love-seekers should be watchful of ghosts from the past who may seek to “spin your bed and blacken your head” (“The Long Way Home”). Other simpler, more light-hearted features such as “Wild Roses and Whiskey” and “The Whispering Pines” with their back-woods-Country vibe have Bobby asking “Will I be ‘goin on down the trail alone?” and giving the advice of “Why don’t you look to the whispering pines, why don’t you put your little hand in mine?”.
Featuring CD and wall-poster artwork by the highly-original and astounding talent-Diane Meldrum! Come Eat (awesome treats by Bobby and Friends) Drink and “Dance like little kids” at Bobby’s “Fall-Fest/CD Release Extravaganza” – featuring ‘giveaways’ including prizes for: ‘Bobbing for apples’ and ‘Pumpkin/gourd carving’. –Bring a smaller sized pumpkin/gourd for entry or come early and get one provided by Bobby (supplies limited to first 25 folks!)
Local talent show openers will include some of Buffalo’s best musical artists: “M.E.L.” (Music=Love/ Melanie Klaja), “Katie Ann”, and the highly acclaimed “Randle and the Late Night Scandals”–A “Dirty-Blues/Soul-Funk” band that will have you gettin’ your groove on!
Opening act, Randle and the Late Night Scandals, were recently voted Grand Champions in the local 2013 Artvoice BOOM Battle of Original Music and finalists in the national 2013 Hard Rock Rising Battle of the Bands- these guys are lighting the local music scene on fire!
Folks may know “M.E.L.” from her recurring weekly gig as host of “DBGB’s Open-Mic Night” on Mondays on Allen St., as well as a performer in various local events and fundraisers such as “Spikes for Tykes” @ Woodlawn Beach benefiting “The Kelly for Kids Foundation”. With covers from “Lourde” to “The Dixie Chicks” this girl can sing it all!-And amazingly well!
“Katie Anne” is just returning from a national tour with husband “DJ MC Zill,” promoting her thrilling debut CD release “The Ride” recorded at GCR studios (of Robby Goo and other fame!). Check out Katie and her melodic/poetic balance of soothing pop-rock vocals and imaginative keyboard stylistics! Katie is a truly impassioned performer not to be missed!
