Buffalo Jill of The Week Holly

This week, we take a look at one of our rookie dancers as our Jill of The Week. Outgoing Holly can be found on gamedays on Nicole's line between Kristin B and Ayeshia and even when she's not in uniform, she's usually dancing. Anyone who knows her knows that she's pretty much the life of every party and loves to make people laugh. Beyond that, she's fiercely loyal to her friends and sticks by them through thick and thin. In fact, when asked about Holly's best qualities, close friend and former squadmate Dana said that her best qualities are that she is caring, friendly, outgoing, and always ready to help out a friend. She has a huge heart which may be part of why she made the career choice she did. She currently is an X-ray tech and is working towards a career as a heart surgeon! We already have one doctor on the squad in veterinarian Dr. Amanda and in a few years, assuming she sticks around on the squad (hopefully), we'll have Dr. Holly as well! But cutting people open isn't her only focus. Prior to joining the Jills, she cheered all throughout her school years and even won 5 National titles in 9 years as part of an all-star cheerleading squad.

Chiefs game at Rhino's

With the recent 4-game losing streak that the Bills went on, attendance at the 103.3 The Edge Away game party at Rhino's waned a bit this week and the regulars who missed the event are probably kicking themselves after the Bills woke up and clobbered their old AFL rivals, the Kansas City Chiefs by a score of 54-31. The crowd was louder at Rhino's for this game than it had been the previous 2 away games with only about half the people. Of course 10 scores by the Bills may have had something to do with that. Well, not to kick someone when they're down, but there are some other reasons that the regulars who missed should be kicking themselves. Part of the promotion includes a squares contest in which winners take home prizes like t-shirts and the like for having the correct score at the end of a quarter. Well, this week, there were a few added bonuses. At the end of the first half, one lucky person walked around with a brand new snowboard from Yuengling, one of the sponsors of the away game parties. The final score even got a grill. And of course, with 10 Bills scores in the game (6 TDs and 4 FGs), there were increased chances to sign up for the 42" LCD TV that is to be won at the end of the season.

Another reason for a person to kick himself for missing the party...the Buffalo Jills were, as usual, on hand for the 1st half of the game. 3rd year vet and 1st year co-captain Christina made her first appearance at Rhino's this season and rookie Ambassador Brandi made her 2nd appearance at Rhino's this season.
Next up, you can meet some of the Jills as part of Operation Rock Out Hunger as a few of them will be appearing with 97Rock's DJ Jickster at Rosa's in Cheektowaga as he collects for the Food Bank of Western NY.
Then, if anyone is truly dedicated on getting an early jump on their Black Friday shopping, the place to be is the Fashion Outlets of Niagara from 10pm to midnight on Thanksgiving night. The stores don't open until midnight but Jickster and the Jills will be hosting a tailgate party beforehand.
Saturday night, the focus turns to the Bandettes for an evening as they make their first public appearance as the new 2009 squad. The World's Largest Disco is the place to be if you want to meet 8 of last year's squad returning along with a pair of returnees from the past as well as 5 new rookies. Tickets are sold out for this Buffalo Convention Center event but they can be had from scalpers and places such as eBay and StubHub.
Sunday, the Buffalo Jills return to the Ralph for a post-Thanksgiving matchup between the Bills and the San Francisco 49ers. Meet members of the Ambassador Squad inside the Fieldhouse and at tailgate parties thrown by 97Rock and 103.3 The Edge before watching the dancers on the field and on the sidelines throughout the game cheering on the Bills and showing why the Jills dance routines are almong the hottest in the NFL.

Buffalo Jill of The Week Ashley

On gamedays, you'll find a stunning redhead on Omarlla's line between Omarlla and Lisa dancing up a storm, something she's been doing for the last 18 years. Ashley is in her rookie season with the Jills and her outgoing and friendly nature has made her a perfect fit on the squad, like she was made for the Jills. You can almost never find Ashley without a smile and she finds a way to make the best of any situation or, in the case of Buffalo, any weather. If it's summer, she'll spend her free time in the water swimming and tanning on the beach. If it's winter, she'll spend her time on the slopes snowboarding. Also, don't let her small size fool you...she's no pushover as she's spent some time working to master the art of judo. You can read more about Ashley at

Monday Night Football pics

After a game on National TV in which the Bills' passing game and coaching were putrid to say the least, we won't waste time talking about the game on the field. Instead, all the comments on this will be about the ladies who performed like World Champions from the pregame through the end of the night, the Buffalo Jills.

Prior to the game, as usual, we could find the Jills Ambassadors at the big tailgate parties thrown by their chief sponsors from Citadel Broadcasting. Brandi, Liz, Katherine, and Sarah handled the crowds at the 103.3 The Edge Tailgate party while Danielle, Keisha, Amanda F, and Vincenza were pretty swamped at the 97Rock Tailgate party selling calendars and pictures with the fans. With Monday Night Football going on, the Fieldhouse was closed and while the official Bills pregame show was being broadcast right next to them, Laura and Alison posed for pictures with some of the fans at the Molson Ultimate Tailgate Party. But the Jills were far from done as the dancers got into the tailgate party as well with a couple of rousing dance performances an hour prior to kickoff of the game over on the far end of Lot C from Laura and Alison. Prior to taking the stage, they even posed with a few of the fans who were nearby waiting to see them perform.

After wrapping up at the tailgate parties, the Jills went back inside the stadium for the game where Laura and Alison spent the evening accompanying the Bills' mascot, Billy Buffalo.

After Eileen took the field to deliver the game ball, the dancers joined her onfield for a pregame performance before heading to the sidelines to help keep the crowd pumped up when the team faltered on the field.

Next up for the Jills, we have the 103.3 The Edge Away game party at Rhino's on the 23rd where we'll have a few of the Jills on hand to cheer on the Bills against the Chiefs alongside a good-sized group of diehard fans. Drink specials, free wings at halftime, and lots of prizes.
After that, Western NY gets to tailgate with 97Rock's Jickster at the Niagara Fashion Outlets on Thanksgiving Night from 10-midnight before the stores open for Black Friday. And anyone who knows Jickster knows that he doesn't do an on-location appearance like this without some of the Jills. Only in Buffalo will people tailgate for shopping!
The Jills next take the field at Ralph Wilson Stadium on November 30th to cheer on the Bills against the San Francisco 49ers.

Buffalo Jill of The Week Brandi

This week, we take a look at one of the rookie members of the Jills Ambassador Squad with the lovely Brandi. Now, long-time readers may be confused about her being a rookie because they've seen her in photos before this season. Well, there's a few reasons for that. She is one of those girls who doesn't give up. She has tried out before, something that many notable Buffalo Jills have done over the years...missed a cut one year but came back and made it on the squad. Even Jills director Stephanie M missed the cut before making the squad. Another reason we've seen her pretty smile before this season is the fact that she's had close friendships with many of the girls who have been on the squad the past few years. Unfortunately, we're still waiting for Brandi to get a completed bio submitted but beyond telling you about her history, I can tell you she's kind of a quiet girl whose time on the Ambassador Squad this season is starting to make her a more outgoing and confidant young lady. You can check out Brandi's official page at and don't forget her 97Rock Photo Album at

Pats Away game at Hearthstone Manor

Bill Parker from was on hand at Hearthstone Manor on Sunday for the 104.1 Away Game party benefiting the American Cancer Society and posted these photos. On hand for the event were Nicole, Valerie, Dr. Amanda, Liz, and Jackie!

Bandettes tryouts

The Buffalo Bandettes held open tryouts recently for the 2009 squad.
Hopefuls met at Gold's gym for the chance to become a member of one of Buffalo's elite dance teams, and cheer on their favorite lacrosse stars.
Bandettes captains taught a dance to those trying out in the two-day audition. The girls then performed the dance in front of a panel of judges, as well as completed an interview section of the tryout.
To see a video of tryouts, featuring Erin Y, Meghan, and Melissa demonstrating a routine, as well as short interviews with a pair of hopefuls as well as 2nd year vet Amanda Z, go to

MNF Tailgate Activities to kickoff Bills-Browns game

Pats game at Rhino's Rock Bar

After a 5-1 start, the Bills dropped from first to worst in the AFC East with three straight division losses, the latest being at the hands of the hated Patriots in Foxboro, Massachusetts. Back home in Buffalo or, more accurately, Orchard Park, the 103.3 The Edge Away game party at Rhino's Rock Bar was high for the good moments but until late in the game, never too low for the bad. Part of that was because the Bills have been known for slow starts as well as some late comebacks this season and part of it was the company. The Away Game crew at Rhino's is a pretty close-knit group and there are 50-50 raffles for charity on a regular basis there. The first half of each away game is also blessed with the presence of a pair of Buffalo Jills cheerleaders and when you're in the presence of a pair of beyond stunning beauties like Lisa and Alison, it's hard for a mood to go too sour, no matter how lethargic the Bills played. Lisa and Alison spent the first part of the game posing and watching the game with the fans, cheering when the team made plays, covering their eyes when they made bad, and collecting tickets for a year-end drawing for a 42" TV when the Bills put points on the board.

Next up for the Jills is Monday Night Football on November 17th at the Ralph as the Bills host their Lake Erie rivals, the Cleveland Browns. Prior to the game, Alison and the rest of the Ambassador Squad will be at the 97Rock and 103.3 The Edge Tailgate parties as well as at the Molson Ultimate Tailgate Party in Lot C in front of the stadium. The Fieldhouse will be closed for that game. Lisa and some of the other members of the dance squad will be taking to the stage for a pregame performance in that same area as well. Stay tuned for further details on that.

Pics from the Bayou...nightclub

The nightlife in Buffalo is well-known to be of high quality as the Chippewa party district boasts bars and clubs of practically all kinds for whatever your interest. One of the newest clubs, opened back in February and called Bayou, is the largest club on the strip with no cover charge for ladies and 2 full floors with bars and patios. One of their unique promotions is a "guest bartender night" every Friday and this past Friday, those guest bartenders were some of the Buffalo Jills! The usually hot staff of Bayou got even hotter than usual with the addition of Danielle, Valerie, Lisa, Lynn, and Alecia for the evening. In addition to partying at Bayou with gorgeous bartenders, patrons of Bayou helped the 2009 Jills Calendar Trip Fund as half the cover charge for the night went towards that fund.

Buffalo Jill of The Week Jessica

If you could only use one word to describe Jessica, that word would have to be adorable. Jess has that great smile that just makes everyone around her smile. She has an infectious personality that puts everyone at ease and can brighten the darkest day. It's actually been rather helpful to her to have such a positive outlook on everything as she seems to be always working. It's amazing that she can fit the Jills in with college and 2 jobs but we're obviously ecstatic that she finds a way. Before her 2 years so far with the Jills, she's spent 7 years in cheerleading and 16 years in dance, including a stint with the Russian Moscow Ballet in the Nutcracker. Nowadays, she's foregone her ballet shoes and been spending her Sundays dancing on Jamie's line between Jamie and Eileen. You can read more about Jessica at

Jets game pics

During the 1st quarter of the season, Bills QB Trent Edwards, played, for the most part, like an established veteran even with the lack of a complimentary running game. Over the 2nd quarter of the season, however, that lack helped expose the 2nd year passer, especially in the divisional games against Miami and the Jets. The lack of the running game has allowed the opposing defenses to tee off on the young QB and force him into making turnovers bad decisions with the ball. This Sunday, for the 1st time in his career, Brett Favre left Buffalo in a good mood because he didn't come out on the losing end of the game despite the fact that the crowd was in a frenzy most of the day.

But this site is less about the games than it is about the beauties who cheer on the Buffalo sports teams. Prior to the game, you could find members of the Ambassador Squad at tailgate parties put on by 97Rock and 103.3 The Edge selling and signing calendars as well as posing for pictures with the fans. You could even purchase prints of yourself posing with Keisha, Laura, Vincenza, and Brandi at the 103.3 The Edge tailgate party. Inside the Fieldhouse, while the official pregame show was being broadcast, Danielle and Liz took photos with dozens of fans as well before spending the day escorting Billy Buffalo around the field. Following a rousing pregame performance that followed the game ball delivery by 3rd year vet Christina, the dance squads, led by captains Omarlla, Jamie, and Nicole then took to the sidelines to help keep the crowd going loud from the opening kickoff until late in the game.

Next up for the Jills, Danielle, Valerie, Lisa, Lynn, and Alecia will be guest bartending at Bayou on Chippewa on Friday night. Half of all the money taken at the door goes to help fund the 2009 Calendar shoot trip. Bayou is one of the hottest clubs in Buffalo and it will be even hotter with Buffalo Jills as guest bartenders.

On Sunday, you can find some of the Jills at a pair of away game parties. A pair of them will be at Rhino's in Orchard Park for the 1st half of the Bills-Patriots game with the 103.3 The Edge Away game party while Mix 104.1 is sponsoring an away game party at Hearthstone Manor in Depew as a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.

The Jills next return to the Ralph on November 17th as the Bills play host to their Lake Erie rivals, the Cleveland Browns on Monday Night Football.

Also, clear your calendars for the night of January 16th as the Jills will be invading Club Paradise for their Adult Comedy Show. More details will become available in the next few months.
