Wild Knights

Never able to shake their high-school-era band name, Williamsville’s Wild Knights became one of the region’s top drawing bands in the 1980’s and early 90’s, packing Western NY clubs for long evenings of music by The Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers, The Band and more.

Band members Mike Bellman, Joe Bellanti, Corey Kertzie, Mark Marsack and Dave Ruch have stayed active on stages near and far since then, but performed together only occasionally.

“Their 165-minute set tickled a wall-to-wall crowd. The wide-open appeal of the Wild Knights was evident from the opening strains of ‘Memphis’ to the final ringing chords of ‘Jessica’ and ‘Blue Sky’” – Jim Santella, The Buffalo News, 1/30/1995
