Bruce Wojick has been an integral part of the area music scene for nearly two decades now, playing with such popular rock acts as God's Children, Klear and Strictly Hip. He's been a part of some great music through the years and taken home a few awards, too, including multiple "best guitarist" honors at the Buffalo Music Awards.
But tonight he celebrates a musical first for himself -- the release of his first solo EP (the second is coming in the fall), called "99 With A Bullet," referencing an old radio term where songs were counted down "with a bullet." The sound is different from what we've heard from him before, Wojick says. "It's country-tinged and it rocks," he says. Still, he's been told by those who have heard the music, that it still sounds "just like him." High praise indeed.
"I want to get it out there and see what people think," Wojick says. "It's the old approach with music -- get it to people and see who digs it."
Doors open at 7 tonight in the Tralf Music Hall (622 Main St.); music starts at 8 p.m. with a set by Jamie Holka. Wojick will be joined on stage by Holka on guitar, Leo McDonald on bass, Denny Pelczynski on drums, Will Holton on saxophone and Bridget Weber on vocals and violin.
