No sitars, French horns or harpsichords will be used or harmed, the Whiskey Daredevils assure, when they make their Buffalo debut Saturday night in Mohawk Place, 47 E. Mohawk St.
The Cleveland-based Daredevils include three members of the late, lamented Cowslingers, including singer Greg Miller. If you ever saw those flamethrowers at one of their numerous local gigs, you know what to expect.
If not, here's from the Daredevils' press release: "All the best songs are garage rock, surf, country, blues and rockabilly anyway. Songs that combine some or all of these elements are what is commonly called rock 'n' roll. That's what we're going with here, folks."
Buffalo's alternative country ambassadors, the Steam Donkeys, will open the show at 11 p.m. It will be a busy night for them.
Before stepping on the Mohawk stage, the Steam Donkeys have an 8 p.m. gig in the newly reopened Icon, 391 Ellicott St. There, they will open for BR549, who will remind you of the Everly Brothers with their harmonies and Buck Owens and the Buckaroos with their honky-tonkin' music.
At both shows, longtime Steam Donkey Doug Moody returns from the greater Saratoga area with his fiddle and impressive voice.
