ROMEN BUFFALO AND THE LOYAL ORDER
Romen Buffalo & The Loyal Order hails from the Sonoran Desert (Phoenix, AZ). The pack consists of “Romen Buffalo” on guitar and vocals, “Paddy Bison” picking’ on banjo, “Marconias the Bull” on mandolin and “Shane Beef Master” keeping the bottom end on upright bass. Collectively they are five bovines that enjoy playing stringed instruments and combining their talents to collaborate on roots-based music. Some may think it odd to see musically inclined Buffalos in the southwest desert but to the people (aka “The Herd”) who have experienced a show they tend to believe. Their music is a mix of bluegrass, folk, and Americana – making The Herd tap their toes, kick up their heels and/or dance. The bovine’s influences include Bill Monroe, Flat & Scruggs, Hank Williams, Tony Rice, J.D. Crowe, Bella Fleck, Steve Earle, Elvis Costello, Grateful Dead, and the Allman Brothers. Currently, they are performing shows in and around AZ. Their first CD dropped in April 2016 and they continue to release original music on a regular basis.
