Canal Street String Band

With three voices, fifty-five strings and a pair of cow bones, The Canal Street String Band puts a brand-new shine on some seriously fun old American music. A Buffalo “supergroup” of sorts, The Canal Street String Band is made up of Western New York area musicians Dave Ruch, Phil Banaszak and Jim Whitford. As the group started to get more serious inquiries and performance opportunities, they needed an image to match. We photographed the band during a live show and designed the band name typography. We then designed this poster, which is sent to venues in advance of shows, giving potential concert goers a small taste of the band and their collective sound and spirit.
