Rosewood Bridge, with lead singer Brian Quigley on guitar and Jim Dunnigan on bass, plays your favorite Irish and Americana songs, a little country, a little rock, and a few originals too. Brian Quigley has been performing in the Western New York area for over fifteen years previously with Irish band The Dustmen. Buffalo Music Hall of Fame inductee Jim Dunnigan will be remembered by many long time Buffalo music listeners for being the bass player in one of Buffalo’s most successful 1960’s rock bands, The Tweeds. Jim, after meeting Brian in an Irish pub, eventually joined him in Rosewood Bridge to add bass lines, harmonies, and the occasional kazoo. Zoe Buck, a wonderful young fiddle player, has been joining us for shows when available the last several years always adding a truly Irish sound to the mix.  She also played on Brian’s last album. These days you can find Brian, Jim, and Zoe bringing the fun of Rosewood Bridge to pubs and parties all over Western NY. Rosewood Bridge is folk, acoustic, and a little bit more. You’ll likely know most of the lyrics, but if you don’t you will by the time the song is over!

Accordion player Ray Szpylman also sits in with us on occasion.  Ray’s a staple in the Irish music scene having played in Eire Road as well as serving several stints with Brian in The Dustmen. He’s also a great blues keyboard player playing for many years with The Dan Harper Band.

Pete DiGioia, one the busiest and most talented keyboard players in Buffalo, is known for many bands including Transition, The Peter Dee Band, and Forgotten Dreams. A good friend of the band, Pete joins us when needed.

A fantastic player of long neck banjo and guitar, as well as a huge Kingston Trio fan, Russ Scinta started both The Dustmen and Rosewood Bridge with Brian.  Now retired from music, he’s enjoying spending time with his grandkids.
