Formed in Denton in 2014, Buffalo Ruckus came together to make Southern rock 'n' roll, Texas style, but created psychedelic Americana injected with '70s Southern soul. It's better described as experimental country-fried rock, but it's really just Texas music at its finest. The band members, admirers of Ray Wylie Hubbard, released their self-titled debut shortly after they formed and spawned two radio singles, "High Again" and "Angilee." Then they wowed critics with the release of their album Peace & Cornbread in 2016. "Soulful, wild and crazy, strong lyrics that make you listen," Brett Dylan from KHYI-FM (95.3 The Range) claimed. "Jason Lovell has the voice and spirit. Great name, great band." Lovell is joined by guitarist and mandolin slayer Brad Haefner, bassist Michael Burgess and percussionist Jerrod Ford. They've "spread the Ruckus" at places like Billy Bob's and House of Blues and opened for bands such as Foghat, Cheap Trick, The Dirty River Boys and Merle Haggard before he died in April 2016.
