Bop Shop presents: BOYD LEE DUNLOP
A RECORD STORE DAY EVENT

For nearly eighty years, Boyd Lee Dunlop has been a live musician. Then, at age eighty-five, he stepped into a recording studio in Buffalo, NY with Sabu Adeyola on bass and Virgil Day on drums and, finally, recorded an album of his own.
Boyd Lee Dunlop was born in 1926 in Winston Salem, NC. Music brought him to Buffalo, NY as a child. His family followed his aunt who had taken a job as a violinist with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. Dunlop’s first piano was found outside his house on the corner, discarded with only half the keys working. As Dunlop remembers, “I asked my mother if I could bring it into the house. I thought it would be easy for me to play. If I could see the notes, I could play. What can I say, a year later we bought a piano, and here I am.”
Dunlop gave his younger brother, Frankie Dunlop, his first drum lesson. Dunlop recalls, “We used the thin wood from the back of a chair as our sticks.” Younger brother Frankie went on to find fame as a drummer, playing with Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, Sonny Rollins, Big Jay McNeely, Lionel Hampton, and many other jazz greats, and recording nearly one hundred sides during his career.
Boyd Lee Dunlop’s trajectory followed a different course. Until now he could be found only on one record, a blowsy rhythm and blues session from the late 50’s by Big Jay McNeely. For years Dunlop worked in Buffalo’s steel mills and rail yards, yet his calling was the piano and he played in the clubs around Buffalo, including the storied Colored Musicians Club.

Bop Shop presents: WAMMO
A RECORD STORE DAY EVENT
Saturday, April 20th 2pm
Bop Shop Records
1460 Monroe Ave
FREE

Backing Wammo will the Willy O’Riley and Chris Potter of the Swooners. PLUS – On the bass, the one and only Todd Bradley!
Performer, poet, musician, visual artist: Wammo defies simple classification. He’s a singer/songwriter who can also express himself through paint on canvas, a record producer who is also a performance poet, an actor who is also at ease behind the camera, a crackerjack washboard player with comic timing to match. This multi-talented man is creative to his core.
Born in NYC but raised in the wilds of Texas, Wammo is an American original. The eldest son of Metropolitan Opera star William Walker, Wammo grew up as a musical omnivore who embraced influences ranging from Beethoven to the Beatles to Black Flag. He also began painting intense canvases drenched in contrast and color.
In 1984 he received his BFA in  Radio/TV/Film from Texas Christian University and immediately went to work as a radio DJ and musician. First coming to national attention on the MTV and Lollapalooza tours in 1994, Wammo founded the first-ever Austin Poetry Slam, took second place in the National Poetry Slam in 1995 and cut his first solo album, Fat-Headed Stranger on the Mouth Almighty/Mercury label.
As cofounder of the Asylum Street Spankers, Wammo established himself as a creative force in America’s roots music revival leading into the 21st century. By 2010, Wammo had performed on nine Spankers albums (of which he produced two), two more solo albums, two full-length concert DVDs, and had appeared on stages and in music festivals across America, Europe and Japan, including Roskilde, Austin City Limits, and SXSW. His song Stick Magnetic Ribbons on Your SUV, a parody of Tie A Yellow Ribbon, has garnered over a million hits on YouTube.
Wammo made his professional film debut in Richard Linklater’s Slackerand was also featured in the documentary Slam Nation. In 2007,  Wammo headlined the TerraNOVA SoloNOVA Festival in New York City with his one-man show, Road Dog. In 2008, he starred off-Broadway inWhat and Give Up Show Biz?, a variety show tracing the history of the Spankers.

Legendary Geneseo music store entrepreneur BUZZObrings The Buzzo All-Stars to the Bop Shop. The Buzzo All-Stars are “a few old guys” (four to five) who have a good time playing music! Led by the “lovable” front-man “Buzzo” (trumpet & vocals), the band plays songs they try to remember from the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s!
I remember going to Buzzos long before I opened the Bop Shop. Working for Rounder Records In the Mid 70s I was always dropping in hustling their latest releases. I’ve always been very fond of him and his unorthodox ways and its an honor to have him play at my store. Should be fun!
