Singer/Songwriter The White Buffalo comes to Hard Rock Cafe on the Strip Saturday, March 2nd.
Special guest Jack EVan Johnson, frontman for local Vegas favorites DUDE CITY, will be opening the show.
Jake Smith's "White Buffalo" consists of Matt Lynott on drums and Tommy Andrews on bass. Alone or with his band, The White Buffalo incorporates blues, old time country, folk and rock into a stripped down unmistakable sound.
The White Buffalo is a reference to a big powerful kind of American Symbol, which is a perfect moniker for Jake. Everything about him is big, from his physical size to his amazing vocal range. The White Buffalo represents an authentic homage to hard life on the road, when artists truly lived what they sang about.
The White Buffalo's first full-length album, Hogtied Like a Rodeo, debuted in 2002, followed by The White Buffalo EP. Off the grid for a while, The White Buffalo returned in 2010 with the release of his second EP, Prepare for Black and Blue.
Being a great lyrical storyteller and singing with honesty and thoughtful reflection is something that comes naturally to Jake. His recently released, Once Upon a Time in The West, is his second full length album. With a more varied subject matter which includes more feel good songs, he is hoping to reach a broader range of people.
