Welcome to Soundcheck’s 1 year anniversary Summer Mixtape. This past year was crazy. We went through a pandemic, in which we needed to isolate from friends and loved ones. We saw the cancellation of events, concerts and festivals. At Buffalo Rising, we feel that music is not only important but necessary. Music helps get us through the toughest times and we use it to celebrate our happiest days. As venues closed and Buffalo became silent, we decided to start Soundcheck. We reached out to local musicians, in a variety of genres, offering them the chance to perform on our platform and share their music with our audience. We were incredibly lucky to have an amazing team that put these videos together as well as our sponsors, Evans Bank and Picasso’s Pizza, because with out them, we truly couldn’t have done this!
As we celebrate the one year anniversary of Soundcheck, we’ve compiled a mixtape featuring some of the artists that performed over the past year. We wanted to celebrate the bands we featured and thank them all for participating. We hope you enjoy this mixtape and it provides a soundtrack for your summer! We look forward to another year of Soundcheck, where we will continue to feature local musicians.
