Buffalo's - self-styled 'Supergroup' - The Pillagers rolled into the Mad Ferret in Preston, last night and thrilled the small exclusive audience with a blinding set of classic American rock and roll. 28/1/2010. Preston, UK.
The rock veterns led by lead singer Gary Zoldos and the guitar brilliance of Patrick J. Kane rocked the crowd with a great set of classic American rock.
With 10,000 Maniacs Jerry Augustyniak playing brilliantly on the drum kit, 'The Pillagers' found a new set of fans with the songs 'Shameless' and 'Thrilled To Death'.
