Float Like A Buffalo
Denver-based Float Like a Buffalo is horn-driven Ska-funk-reggae-rock with nods to the funk of Lettuce, jam of Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, rock of Red Hot Chili Peppers and Chicago Transit Authority, soul of James Brown, & high-energy guitar licks of Jimi Hendrix that all combine to make a sound impossible not to dance to. They have become a regional funk sensation over the past five years, playing sold out shows at major Colorado venues like Red Rocks, Jazz Aspen Snowmass, The Bluebird Theater, & The Gothic Theatre – and taking the crown for Best Funk Band in Westword’s 2019 Music Awards. Float has opened for major artists like Face Vocal Band, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Dumpstaphunk, Galactic, Sting, Turkuaz, HER, Magic Beans, and MarchFourth, and has recently branched out regionally, selling out shows in Wyoming and Nebraska. The band features seven members: Cory Pearman (Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar), James Steinbach (Lead Guitar), Jason Clukies (Bass), Luke Story (Trumpet, Saxophone), Cory “Beef” Meier (Keys, Trombone), Phil Pleckham (Drums, Backup Vocals), and Garrett Achten (Percussion).
