Nina & The Buffalo Riders
Nina & The Buffalo Riders are a product and cumulative manifestation of Detroit’s legendary musical history. The six piece outfit combines soulful vocals and instrumentation reminiscent of early blues and psychedelic rock from the likes of Big Brother and the Holding Co. to Jefferson Airplane, featuring dominant guitar leads, acoustic breaks, screaming organ, and the occasional banjo and mandolin while still remaining modern and genre elusive.
Since their formation in early 2013, “Nina and the Buffalo Riders have been steadily building a following in Detroit with music that aches with soul and burns with the heart of rock” (Chuck Marshall - National Rock Review), playing prime time slots at Detroit Winter Blast 2016, Showcase D’Holidays 2015, Arts Beats and Eats Royal Oak 2015, opening for Detroit’s own Sponge at the Allen Park City Art and Music Festival in 2013, 2014 and 2015, the Metro Times Blowout 2015, Hamtramck Music Festival in 2016 and the Ferndale City Pride Festival in 2014, headlining venues such as the Magic Stick Detroit, Short's Brewing Company Bellaire, PJ's Lager House in Detroit's historic Corktown neighborhood, the famous Blind Pig Ann Arbor and the newly opened Huma Room at Hopcat Detroit, and performing as direct support for national acts such as The Steepwater Band Chicago and Mike Leslie of Candelbox, in addition to heavy hitting local acts The Muggs, The Reefermen and Detroit Classic Rock royalty Frijid Pink.
The group is valued for their high intensity live performances, cross-genre instrumentation, and desire to make genuine friendships with every individual that they encounter.
