Green Schwinn are a 2-piece acoustic band based in the Buffalo, NY area. We play music for anybody who needs it even though they don't know it. We perform an eclectic blend of unusual old-time classics, upbeat fun songs, originals and plenty of cover songs. We are an attention-getting group that is unlike anything else you have ever heard before. If you are looking for something unique and different, we are the band for you. This band delivers a high-octane entertainment knockout punch that is more likely delivered by larger bands of 4 or more people. Band members John Blake (vocals) and Andy Othman (guitar, ukulele) list their most important musical influence as Tiny Tim, who dominated the late 60's with his unique high falsetto voice and love of tulips. Another big influence on the band was Robert Crumb. He is a musician and comic book artist and old-time music aficianado. His band is called The Cheap Suit Serenaders. Green Schwinn derives their unique comic insight from past old 1930's animated cartoon icons such as Betty Boop, Popeye and Daffy Duck.
