Deep Space, Light Speed, Bluegrass!

Buffalo Galaxy is where heavy hitting psychedelia meets old timin’ bluegrass. Their songwriting, patience, and personalities prove they can go deeper than your typical bluegrass band. Banjo, Mandolin, Upright Bass, and Acoustic Guitar play off each other reaching both interstellar space and a universal familiarity. Their song catalog ranges from short and sweet Bill Monroe to here and now Lil Nas X. As well as catchy originals like “Time Machine” and long renditions of Grateful Dead classics.

Since 2019 Buffalo Galaxy has played over 250 shows around the US from Colorado to North Carolina. In 2023, they revved up their tour schedule playing further and farther from their home in Minneapolis. Noticeable spots include: Palisade Bluegrass Bash (Colorado), Blue Ox Music Festival (Wisconsin), AVL Fest (North Carolina), Summer’s End Smoke Out & Porcupine Music Festival (Michigan), and playing dozens of new markets in and beyond Montana, Ohio, Kentucky, and Missouri.

Buffalo Galaxy has always consisted of:

  • Peter Whiteman – bass / vocals
  • Johnny Kovarik – guitar / vocals
  • Jake Rohde – mandolin / vocals
  • Zach Tauer – banjo /  vocals
