ABOUT THE ARTIST:
The Bar-Room Buzzards originally formed in 1966, founded by co-leaders Paul Preston and Jim Koteras. Forty-odd years later the band continues to entertain audiences in the Western New York region. The quartet has performed at Jazz Festivals in New Orleans, San Diego, Savannah, Georgia, Indianapolis, and Columbus, Ohio, as well as at numerous concerts and events throughout New York State. In 2002 they were inducted into the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame.
For 26 years the band enjoyed an association with the nationally televised Mark Russell Comedy Specials aired on Channel 17 in Buffalo, New York, including many on-camera appearances.
The quartet began it’s long career with a three-year tenure at the old Speakeasy Restaurant in Niagara Falls, New York, followed by a four-year run at the famous Showboat, which was moored at the foot of Hertel Avenue in Buffalo, New York. In 1975 the Buzzards began an association with the Miss Buffalo Cruise Lines that spanned 28 years. Their summer activities also include concerts at various suburban outdoor stage areas, including Orchard Park, West Seneca, Grand Island, Tonawanda, Niagara Falls and Amherst.
