Two Western New York guitar heroes will be performing here in the Ninth Ward at Babeville. The acclaimed singer-songwriter BRUCE WOJICK and the solo finger-style virtuoso JAMIE HOLKA are award-winning musicians from Niagara Falls, NY.
Bruce Wojick, who is regarded as one of the most talented and respected guitarist-songwriters in the Western NY area, has been a mainstay for two decades. He has performed as a key component in two of the area’s best and most popular original rock bands, God’s Children and Klear, while currently a member of the national touring band The Strictly Hip. Wojick has been named the top original guitar player five times at the Buffalo Music Awards and his songs have been featured in numerous television shows and films. He has his own unique style blending rock, soul, country and Americana genres. Bruce has also opened for and shared the stage with a number of international recording artists including the Goo Goo Dolls, Chuck Berry, Kid Rock, Alice Cooper, Government Mule, Puddle of Mudd, Creedance Clearwater, Heart and George Thorogood.
Jamie Holka is a solo finger-style guitarist whose style incorporates many layers to assimilate bass, drums, chords and melody. Switching between a Gibson L-5 and a Maton Michael Fix model, he’s able to create quite a diverse sound. Jamie studied at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts and continued the study of jazz guitar long after his Berklee days. However, jazz is only a foundation for his multi-layered arrangements. Jamie took 3rd place in the North American Rock Guitar Competition in 2006 and has been a support act for many classic artists such as Allan Holdsworth, Todd Rundgren, Michael McDonald, Steve Morse, Steve Miller, Little Feat, Kansas, Steve Kimoch, Adam Rafferty, and CCR.
