Born out of the Allentown neighborhood in Buffalo, NY, Josh Gage, Allen Greystone and Ben Perrello blended their original Folk, Indie and Americana compositions to form The Observers. With the addition of Matt Eppolito, Dan Schwach and Tyler Wescott they have established a unique sound. The Observers take you on a journey of human experience. Their shows allow you to travel through a myriad of emotions from tear in your beer ballads, to remain in your brain melodies, and even down home, foot stompin’ hootenannies.
Or as Jeff Miers, Buffalo News Pop Music Critic wrote on April 17, 2014:
“Like a homegrown hybrid of influences including Yonder Mountain String Band, the Decemberists, acoustic Jethro Tull and Bon Iver, the Observers grew out of a musical meeting of the minds between Allentown-based musicians Josh Gage, Allen Greystone and Ben Perrello. All three are songwriters, singers and multi-instrumentalists, with a common core formed from a shared love of indie folk and Americana.”
