AMERICANARAMA!
Yellow Jack plays folk and Americana songs, songs related to Western New York and Erie Canal history, original material, and occasionally amusing interpretations of contemporary rock and pop songs. 

ADMIRED ARTISTS.
We enjoy the Carter Family, Charlie Poole, Woody Guthrie, Memphis Jug Band, Jean Ritchie, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, John Prine, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Violent Femmes, Billy Bragg, Michelle Shocked, Bright Eyes, Avett Brothers, Old Crow Medicine Show, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Devil Makes Three and Asleep at the Wheel, among others. 
BUFFALOVE.
Many of our songs relate to Buffalo-Niagara history: “Buffalo (The Er-I-E is Rising),” “Low Bridge (Everybody Down!),” “Buffalo Gals,” “White House Blues” (about McKinley’s assassination), as well as lesser-known numbers can usually be heard in our set. Our own contributions to local history in song include “O! Mighty Niagara,” “The Legend of Hannah Johnson” and “The Battle of Buffalo (The Burning of the City).”
