The Possum Posse found mild success with their popular viral video series, "Guy On A Buffalo," in which the 1978 film, "Buffalo Rider" was re-edited and set to a new and original soundtrack. Their debut album, "Let's Ride, Boys! (On the Importance of Commas)" is the result of their meager "Buffalo" success. After earning over a million YouTube views in the first month, the band successfully converted the videos' popularity into a successful Kickstarter campaign - raising enough money to produce the album.
Recorded at Ray Benson's Bismeaux studio in Austin, and produced by Reckless Kelly founder Cody Braun, the album takes seriously the business of making music - even if some of the songs' subject matter is less than serious.
The nationwide fan base that has grown from "Guy On A Buffalo" is largely unaware that the band has been making music since 2002. The band's catalog consists of offbeat, primarily humor-laden songs that defy the hokey, country-"comedy" genre. The band is currently based in Austin, Texas, but was originally formed near Abilene, Texas as the result of a house party's lack of, and need for (cheap) entertainment.
