53 Days reunites for Sportsmen’s Tavern show

The list of Buffalo bands from the past few decades that belong beneath the “I can’t believe these guys never made it big” banner is a vast one. 53 Days numbers among the many on that list.

A mainstay of the bustling mid- to late-’90s alternative rock/power-pop/nascent indie scene, the group took the songs of leader John Moore and lent them melodic depth and rhythmic muscle, and became a live favorite in region on stages ranging from the small (Nietzsche’s) to the grand (the Friendship Festival in Fort Erie, Ont.).

On Jan. 15, 53 Days – original members Moore, Tom Robinson and Steve Ryder, with erstwhile Klear veterans Bruce Wojick and Denny Pelczynski, and keyboardist Joe “Mojo” Mergler – will take the stage at the Sportsmen’s Tavern (326 Amherst St.) for a rare area gig. The Farewells will kick off the evening with a 9 p.m. set.

Tickets are $8 advance, $10 at the door (Sportsmen’s Tavern, Showclix.com).
