The Samuel Tambe Band prides itself in bringing professional quality live music to the WNY area. We play a wide range of styles, including classic rock, easy listening, country, soul, and pop. Depending on when you walk in on our set, you may find yourself listening to anything from James Taylor to Pink Floyd! We even throw in some original music, to boot! Our musical range allows us to please a wide variety of listeners as well as customize set lists for a number of different event types and occasions. No matter what we're playing, two things never change: the music is good and the positive vibes abound! (In our experience, they're quite contagious!)


Who's Samuel Tambe, anyway? Samuel is a local musician who prides himself in performing music to bring happiness and a sense of connection to his listeners. He's been part of the Western New York music scene for many years. During that time, he's worked on both solo and group music projects with many different musicians. Samuel loves to bring new life to classic hits; and writes and produces original music as well. He's known for his warm and clean guitar sound, great voice, and access to some of the area's best musicians. 

And the Samuel Tambe Band? It's a hand-picked collection of musicians gathered by Samuel and ready to bring the music love!

Instruments we play: Guitar, bass, keys, drums, mandolin, sax, miscellaneous percussion and voice (we love melody and harmony)!

Musicians we cover: James Taylor, Norah Jones, Otis Redding, The Beatles, Jim Croce, John Mayer, Bill Withers, Van Morrison, Pink Floyd, and many more.

How many people are in the band? We have six "regular" members:

But we're shape shifters! We perform in small, intimate settings in solo, duo, or trio form; and we can add members to our regular size to maximize the sound and celebration factor.
