In April 2019, the band performed the original composition, “Shelby Swamp Boogie”, as Part 1 of 3, for the launch of a new live performance series , The Batavian Sessions. The first of three videos for the band was shot at Center Street Smokehouse. Neighboring business, Coffee Karma, provided the band with a warm welcome of hospitality and friendship throughout and after the shoot.
Howard Owens of The Batavian, a rockabilly fan, was inspired to start the series after finding and falling in love with a YouTube series, Bopflix. The series showcases the 1940-1960s genre through music videos, live shows and documentaries.
“A” Blues Band kicked off the start of The Batavian Sessions with their live performance, whi and will soon be followed by many other local, talented bands throughout the WNY region.
