The Name Game

Local guitarist, singer, songwriter, Buffalo Music Hall of Fame member and neighbor Jim Whitford plays bass and sings backup vocals in the Alison Pipitone Band, or at least I think he does.
The first time the band was introduced by WBFO On the Border host Bert Gambini Wednesday night, he was called Jim Whitford; the second time Gambini introduced the band, he was called Jim Whitfield. As we were talking to him and Holly Christiano just before we left, a couple of kids about age 10-12 at the merchandise table said simultaneously, "hello, Mr. Whitman."
Ah, the ever-changing identity of the mysterious guitar/bass player.
