The Buffalo Ryders

Social links:

The Buffalo Ryders were founded in 2009 in Green Valley, Ohio by Joe Risdon, a guitar protégé of respected Akron bluesman Mike Lenz. Today, Risdon is joined by drummer Mike Lupica and bassist Kevin McManus. In 2021, the trio released the album “Where the Liars Go.” The Devil Strip hailed it as “a heavy, methodical, lineup of grounded songs that sound best when played loudly,” while The Canton Repository said it “embodies the underground scene ethos – a lean, unrelenting sonic blast of guitar-heavy, drum-and-bass-anchored alt-rock complimented with moody, purposeful vocals.
