In a nutshell (details throughout site), Buffalo Music Hall Of Fame band, Only Humen is a classic rock trio and WNY’s #1 party band. Playing all types of functions and catering to audiences of all ages is Only Humen’s strong point. If you are interested in booking Only Humen for an event, 716.683.1671. Not necessary but...it may be a good idea to see them in an atmosphere similar to the type of function you may have. You don't have to rely on earth shattering volumes or crazy light shows to appreciate them. It's a pro show all the way and they will keep you dancing! Here is some background:

 Only” Frank Pusateri - Bass/Vocals. Nominated Top Bassist 2005 in Peoples Choice Awards-Co-founder, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, bass & guitar teacher, engineer, producer, studio owner, bookings, blah, blah, blah. Only Frank has been a member of the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame since 1991 when he won top pop bassist honors for a solid three years in a row and is a recipient of over 25 BMA awards. The band was inducted in 1995. His former bands include Jambo, Sky, and Lions before forming Only Humen in late 1986 with co-founder Ray Wood. His musical influences vary widely, citing The Beatles, Todd Rundgren, and Mozart as the most influential.

  Rick “The Animal” McEvoy - Drums/Vocals. Nominated Top Pop Drummer 2005 Buffalo Music Awards and Peoples Choice Awards-Only Humen alumni drummer and all around good guy plays like there are seven percussionists up there. He is truly amazing (and fun) to watch. While all three members split the vocal chores, Rick brings a unique voice to the Only Humen sound. This easily provides excitement and a thrilling performance level unmatched in today’s musical market. The man is an animal! A Jim Henson Production. (On occasion, Only Humen uses drummer Jim Foti, an early drummer of 10,000 Maniacs fame).



Chris 'Koz' -Guitar/Vocals-Only Humen has replaced alumni, multi-talented, award winning, extreme showman, singer/songwriter and good friend Mick Hayes with  a new and fresh face on the WNY music scene-Chris 'Koz' Kozlowski. Chris has graced the acoustic stages of the Buffalo area with his interpretations of Dave Matthews, Paul Simon, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Jack Johnson and a host of others. After careful consideration and under the watchful eye and direction of 'Only' Frank,  he makes his headlong attack into the electric rock-n-roll dance mashing guitar riffs as his predecessors of late have all had to do. His vocal talent lends to make a special blend of the trademark three part harmonies that fans have come to expect from Only Humen. Come out and see Koz rip through dance gems by DMB, GooGooDolls, Matchbox 20 and much more!
                             THANK YOU AGAIN TO VETERAN PROFESSIONAL
                                                           MICK HAYES
                           FOR HELPING US OUT WHILE KOZ WAS IN TRAINING.

More Only Humen Biographical Information

 

Inducted in 1995, Buffalo Music Hall of Fame Band, Only Humen has been rocking WNY, PA & Ohio since late 1986. Hailing from Buffalo, NY, the greatest city on earth, they are arguably one of the tightest, polished outfits in the area and please crowds of all age groups and backgrounds. Clubs, concerts, private parties and equally comfortable with weddings, corporate, casinos, theme parks, church, fireman & police functions – you name it- Only Humen has done it all.

They have also been the chosen opening act for such notables as The Little River Band, Molly Hatchett, Marshall Tucker Band, Travis Tritt, The Kentucky Headhunters, The Sawyer Brown Band, Blake Shelton, Gary Richrath/REO Speedwagon, Rare Earth, Foghat, BTO, The Mamas and the Papas, The Byrds, The Drifters, The Platters, The Coasters, Del Shannon, The Association, The Marvelettes and Herman’s Hermits to name a few. The list goes on and on. Their ability to form fit to a crowd and work the room is uncanny, often creating the illusion of six or more people on stage to produce the full sound which has become their trademark ‘humenized’ sound and winning the band over 25 BMA competitions!

Playing hits by The Beatles, Stones, Elvis, CCR, Bob Seger, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Tom Petty, Van Morrison, Eagles, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Led Zeppelin, The Doobie Brothers, John Mellencamp and everything in between, Wild Cherry, The Commodores, Englebert Humperdinck, Neil Diamond, Head East, to more latter groups like The Tragically Hip, James, 3 Doors Down, The Cure, Kid Rock, Matchbox 20, Jimmy Eat World, Sublime, Dave Matthews Band, ACDC- keeps them in the forefront of the WNY area music scene. Coming from the city that spawned the likes of  other Buffalo Music Hall of Fame artists- The GooGoo Dolls, Billy Sheehan(Mr. Big, Talas), Spyro Gyra, Ani DiFranco, 10,000 Maniacs, Rick James, Robert Moog, Art Kubera, Harold Arlen (yes, “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” Dorothy) and a parade of others, that is quite the accomplishment.

The trio’s stage show has a blend of polished vocals and harmonies, unparalleled tight musicianship, humor and high energy that keeps the audience’s satisfied at any event.


Only Humen boasts the implementation of the all new innovative, technically advanced BOSE L1 PA System which has a remarkable sound and an easy, portable “all in one” time saving setup and tear down. A lighting show by Chauvet with a seemingly endless variation of scene programming and colors decorates the stage with brilliant colors.

While still mainly a “cover” band, Only Humen has recorded three original CD’s over their 25+ years in existence. (Four if you count the unreleased “Bluebird” album recorded at The Power Station in New York City-1995.) “Only Humen So ‘R’ U”-1989, “Six of One-A Half Dozen of the Other”-1997, and “Slightly Twisted Fiction”-2001, all for the indie label, Lionsheart Records America.
