Jam scene mainstays Joe Bellanti, Corey Kertzie and Dave Ruch met in 1983 as members of Buffalo NY Grateful Dead cover band “Wild Knights,” a group that still plays reunion shows to this day.

But it wasn’t until early 2020 that they wrote their first original music together, this time as three-piece instrumental organ trio/funky jam band Organ Fairchild.

The debut gig was just a month before COVID shutdowns, but the horse was out of the barn and the response was immediate!

  • Featured on Spotify’s “Instrumental Funk” editorial playlist
