Buffalo Wabs & The Price Hill Hustle is a Cincinnati based, 4 piece Americana/Folk band that blends the tradition of heroes like Woody Guthrie and Mississippi John Hurt w/ contemporary flavor. In its short existence, the band has grown its fan base by getting out in front of folks. Whether it's the great variety of local shows or their regional touring, they always bring high energy onto every stage on which they perform.
Buffalo Wabs (aka Matt Wabnitz) spearheads this group, playing guitar and taking most of the vocal duties. Casey Campbell, Ian Mathieu, and Scott Risner comprise The Price Hill Hustle side of the equation. The group is deeply rooted in the tradition of Old Time pioneers; however, the energy they bring to a live performance could burn down the rowdiest honky-tonk in town.
The four members met through the Cincinnati music community at open mics and seeing each other at other shows around town. They've all had different musical projects of their own. After joining each other onstage at several venues they realized the chemistry was undeniable. They began playing more and more, and it seemed as though the more they played, the more they played. Crowds were hypnotized immediately.
"The Hustle," as they are often referred to, brings something uniquely different that is rarely found with bands. The band brings its own vibe everywhere it goes. It's almost a culture in itself. Followers have even begun to invent their own vernacular; for example, you may hear someone say they got "Hustled" last night. That's not necessarily a bad thing. Getting "Hustled" is just one's way of saying, "I saw Buffalo Wabs & The Price Hill Hustle and they TORE IT UP!" Hopefully you can get yourself "Hustled" real soon. [+]
