ABOUT THE BAND
An eccentric bunch of Buffalo musicians, The Skiffle Minstrels have become dancers’ favorites throughout western and central New York—and are quickly making waves from Boston to Lafayette, LA. The band plays country-western and Cajun standards as well as upbeat originals with a swinging beat that gets ’em on the floor. But don’t take our word for it . . .
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“The Skiffle Minstrels play classic songwriters and songs, and originals that merit being played in the same sets as Hank Williams. It’s listening music, it’s dancing music played with energy and joy. I’ve also had the privilege of hosting them live on my radio show twice. They are great in the small radio studio, but the dance hall is their domain.”—Scott Regan (WRUR Radio, Rochester, NY)
“Dancers love The Skiffle Minstrels! They play music that’s just perfect for all kinds of dancing—country and Cajun two-step, swing, waltz, zydeco, blues—in one fun-filled, high-energy package!”—Esther Brill and RJ Ruble (Partner-Dance Teachers)
“The Skiffle Minstrels infuse this old-time music with so much exuberance and heart that their joy radiates from the stage.”—Erie Times-News
“The Skiffle Minstrels are a hard-working and crowd-pleasing bunch.”—Buffalo News Gusto
“Playing a joyous set of fiddle, accordion, guitar, bass, drums, and plenty of vocals, the Skiffle Minstrels have an infectious good time on stage.”—ArtVoice TV
