Buffalo Wabs & The Price Hill Hustle
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 it’s short existence, the band has become known for the high energy shows, prolific songwriting and most notably…suspenders.
Buffalo Wabs (aka Matt Wabnitz) spearheads this group, playing guitar and ta…king most of the vocal duties. Casey Campbell, Ian Mathieu & Andrew McPheters are the 3 that 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 most rowdy honky tonk in town.
These four fellas 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 on stage at several venues, they realized their 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 as, bring something uniquely different that is rarely found with bands. The band brings it’s own vibe with them everywhere they go. It’s almost a culture in itself. They’ve even begun to invent their own vernacular. You may hear someone say they got “Hustled” last night. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. Getting “Hustled” is just their way of saying, “I saw Buffalo Wabs & The Price Hill Hustle and they TORE IT UP!” Hopefully you can get yourself “Hustled” real soon.
