Rum Buffalo

 Availability: Spring – Autumn 2022 + Festivals

“Surprising, perspiring, inspiring. This is everything British indie should be” – Fred Olafsson, Secret Solstice, Iceland

“Led by the magnetic Jake Stevens, Rum Buffalo creates a landscape that knows no bounds” – Glide Magazine

Rum Buffalo fornicate with rhythm and melody. Mingling many genres, they infiltrate swing and moody blues with filthy synth and epic horn lines to rock the party like no other act.


Since their formation, their jet-powered live show has stormed the UK live music scene, performing to 10,000 on the Truth stage at Glastonbury as well as Boomtown Fair, Shambala, Wilderness, Buskers Bern and dozens of other festivals. Their unique performances border on the surreal, with three-piece horn section, vaudevillian costume, and fire performance brought together by flamboyant singer, guitarist and front-man, Jake Stevens.

Their powerful sound features a unity of purpose which is impossible to resist, as the band perform Houdini-esque musical contortions in perfect unison.
The 7-piece band have toured the world, with performances in Iceland, Switzerland, France, Turkey and Malta, along with a string of gigs in New York City, which included a show at Manhattan’s Rockwood Music Hall.
