Band: The Buzzards

From the Buzzards web site....

The Buzzards are a rockabilly band out of Long Island.

Besides inciting riotous mayhem and general debauchery (not to mention occasional nudity), the Buzzards have performed at every rockabilly hot spot, including the Rodeo Bar in Manhattan and the Blue Comet just outside of Philly.

They are the house band at the Bayou in Long Island and performed at the Gold Coast Casino in Las Vegas for the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend four years in a row. They were rewarded with a standing ovation each year.  They have performed at the Indy Rockabilly Rebel Weekend, the Heavey Rebel Weekender in North Carolina, and Rock n Rods in Philly.  They performed for the Rockabilly Hall of Fame many times, most notably at the 50th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s first sold out concert, in Memphis, TN. 

They are the band of choice to open for national acts and received outstanding praise for their performance with the great Scotty Moore. Scotty even came out to the diner with the Buzzards after the show.

The Buzzards’ CD, “The Grand Buffet,” is still available.

As the winners the band will be recording their next album at Quad studios in conjunction with the legendary Hit Factory recording studios in New York City.
Some of their more notable performances include The 2006 “Lincoln Center Out Of Doors Roots of American Music Festival,” The 2006 “Peace Boat Music Festival” at the United Nations in New York City, winning a Battle of The Bands competition hosted by goswingdancing.com against Joe Battaglia & The New York Big Band in May 2007 and a huge swing party at SOL in New York City hosted by Swing Remix in June 2007.
The Blue Vipers are Billy Nemec-guitar/vocals, Chris Pistorino-upright bass, David Langlois-washboard percussion, Sam Hoyt-trumpet.
