Saturday, Jun 16, 2012 • Riverhead Blues Festival - Little Cliff, The Buzzards and Roomful of Blues • Not a SDLI Event

Posted by Tom on 05/23/2012 • Permalink


The Riverhead Blues Festival is scheduled for June 16 and 17.  It appears that June 16 is the date that would appeal to our members.  Among other bands, Little Cliff, The Buzzards and Roomful of Blues will be playing that day.

The first band goes on at Noon and Roomful goes on from 8:45 to 10:00.  Tickets are $15 for one day and $25 for both days and can be purchased on line.

Band: Lil’ Cliff & The Cliffhangers

2006 International Blues Challenge Finalists Lil’ Cliff & the Cliffhangers are a four piece, blues harmonica driven wrecking crew. These knickerbockers have been singing, swinging and stinging Tri State area audiences for the last three plus years with their own special brand of blues power.

After winning the regional IBC competition, hosted locally by the Downstate Blues Society of Long Island, New York, these four professionals then took their special brand of original jump blues down to Memphis, Tennessee to compete in the annual International Blues Challenge. And wouldn’t you know it, out of literally hundreds of blues artists from all over the world the boys placed in the final top ten!

Fresh from this triumph Lil’ Cliff & the Cliffhangers are now out to support their latest indi-cd release “God Bless Women” on Shankbone Records. Through a comprehensive combination of live appearances up and down the Northeast corridor, radio airplay (wfdu, wwoz, wusb to name a few), local cable television appearances (Wes Houston Presents) as well as the most user friendly web site you could hope for (replete with mp3 and electronic press kit downloads) these blues boys knock ‘em out of their shoes and leave them dancin’ barefoot!

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.
