“Float Like A Buffalo embraces a celebratory, carefree spirit on “Enjoy the Ride”. Lyrically they embrace a sense of optimism in the future, as their highly articulate storytelling gives small snapshots from a life lived most fully. Elements of psychedelic rock, indie rock, with a hint of funk tying it all together making it radiate with pure joy.”

Cory Pearman (lead vocals, rhythm guitar) and Garrett Achten (backup vocals, percussion) had a budding new friendship that started over music. Together, they started The Shower Curtains in late 2014, and shortly thereafter, brought in Garrett’s childhood friends Jason Clukies (backup vocals, bass) and Evan Crabdree (backup vocals, lead guitar) to funk things up. When they added drummer Phil Pleckham (backup vocals, drums) in early 2016, they knew they had something special. The newest additions of the blazing horns are Luke Story (saxophone, trumpet) and Cory “Beef” Meier (trombone) were brought in during the Spring of 2017 to solidify their special blend of funk rock.
