Band/Artist Name & Pronunciation: Touch the Buffalo, Tuch tha Buff-a-lo

Story behind your band/artist name: A group of friends and I were precariously approached by a buffalo while driving through the woods. Two of us pet the buffalo, the other two in the group thought it was unsafe. This was very shortly after graduating college, and we were struggling to find employment. However, two months after that incident, that same friend and I ended up being hired by the same company, without knowledge that the other had been interviewing with that company. Touch your buffaloes kids.

Band Members: Jon - vocals/electric ukulele, Mike - drums, Manny - bass, Tyler - guitar

What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : We each live somewhere in Arlington or Alexandria.

At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: 1.) While waiting to start a gig, a bar patron taught our bassist, Manny, how to play Backgammon. He beat her twice. At backgammon.
2.) Our performance at this years First Audioteka music festival got us featured in Northern Virginia Magazine....s' instagram,
