It only took 37 years!

Jam scene mainstays Joe Bellanti, Corey Kertzie and Dave Ruch met in 1983 as members of Buffalo NY Grateful Dead cover band “Wild Knights,” a group that still plays reunion shows to this day.

But it wasn’t until early 2020 that they wrote their first original music together, this time as three-piece instrumental organ trio/funky jam band Organ Fairchild.

“Go see these guys. Early and often!”
– The Sound Podcast

The debut gig was just a month before COVID shutdowns, but the horse was out of the barn and the response was immediate!

“An incredibly hot band”
– The Buffalo News

Highlights of the band’s short life to date include:

* Three-set booking at 2023 Summer Camp Music Festival

* Two sold out shows at Babeville’s Ninth Ward January 2023

* Voted New York’s top emerging band (out of 64 bands)

* Appeared on the mainstage at Borderland Music + Art Festival (Jason Isbell, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, TAUK, The Revivalists), Rochester’s Lilac Festival (w/ Anders Osborne and Jackie Greene), Lincoln Hill Farms (w/ Andy Frasco and the U.N.) and more

* Club dates across the northeast with Melvin Seals and JGB, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Sophistafunk and many others

* Worldwide release of the debut album “Brewed in Buffalo” (Fall 2021)

“Three long-time veterans of the jam band scene”
– Grateful Web

But since 2020, they’ve been joined together in the pursuit of groovy tunes and juicy jams in a high-powered organ trio format.
