Created in the winter of 2011 by founding members Zack Hay, Mark Retajczyk and Colin Hunt, The North & South Dakotas set out crafting a sound that paid homage to the spirit of old time american music, mountain folk and singer-songwriter traditions. With the addition of drummer Mike Graves and utility-man Nayt Patenaude, the band continued honing in on a sound containing elements of bluegrass, country, folk, honky-tonk, and rock and roll. The mixture of each members’ different musical background has culminated in a unique, harmony-rich, genre sweeping sound, determined to break up the monotony of the modern airwaves.

Featured regularly on 102.7 WEQX (The Real Alternative) and 97.7 WEXT (The Exit), The North & South Dakotas have also supported touring acts such as Deer Tick, Ryan Montbleau, Waylon Speed, Floodwood, Dangermuffin, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Donna The Buffalo, and The Mallett Brothers Band.

Folkfaces is a quintet out of Buffalo, NY that plays a rowdy blend of rootsy Folk, Jazz, and Blues – fusing classic forms with contemporary feelings and irresistibly danceable energy. Their inspiration comes from the mountains of Appalachia to the deltas of Mississippi, the swamps of Louisiana to the Concrete Jungle of the Rustbelt. Specializing in merriment and sticking it to the system, Folkfaces make the crowd dance and the hierarchy shatter.

“Yeah, “folk” is in the name, but Buffalo’s Folkfaces draws from every original American genre and adds a healthy dose of acoustic punk to seal in the cracks. There’s blues and jazz; bluegrass, jug-band, and ragtime; and kazoos and washboards. Folkfaces is just a team of young musicians interpreting old styles with original cuts.” -Jake Clapp (Rochester City Newspaper)
