Commander Cody & His Modern Day Airmen Sportsmen's Tavern & Music Hall326 Amherst St.Buffalo NY 14207874-7734Commander Cody and His Modern Day Airmenhttp://www.commandercody.com/Sunday Aug. 9 @ 6pm $20Commander Cody And His Lost Planet Airmen arrived in San Francisco in 1969, just in time to catch the tale end of the summer of love. They were 8 pieces strong, with the Commander himself, George Frayne, on the piano, and they represented the essence of American roots music; rock and roll, red neck country, boogie-woogie, Cajun, swing/jazz, and self-penned party anthems. Hot Rod Lincoln was a runaway hit in 1972 and Smoke Smoke Smoke That Cigarette broke through as well. They played the legendary Fillmore Auditorium with the Grateful Dead, The Doors, The Jefferson Airplane, Alice Cooper, Led Zeppelin and The Eagles. They also backed up legends Gene Vincent, Link Wray and John Lennon. Their 1974 album "Live From Deep in the Heart of Texas" was named as one of Rolling Stones 100 Greatest of all time. As always, the old Commander Cody himself is behind the piano, leading the musical mayhem and controlled chaos, and sporting his legendary antics and ability to spark up even the toughest crowds.Save
