Best of 2015 – JULY 16th ( Critt’s Juke Joint, The BPO and Turkuaz )

One of our favorite musical nights of the Summer happened on July 16th 2015.It was one of those Buffalo night’s where everything came together to create a memorable evening that won’t soon be forgotten

The weather was marvelous,  the crowds were in great spirits, and the caliber of music was just ridiculously outstanding.

It started with a packed Canalside for a tribute to Stevie Wonder featuring the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and Critt’s Juke Joint

“The orchestra was on fire under the baton of Bradley Thachuk and EVERY musician brought a 1000% to the delight of the crowd. Eric T. Crittenden, Toney Rhodes, Emilio Trumpetman Virella, Deshawn D Ray Jackson, Vinnie DeRosa, Ronald Williams, Drea DNur, Zuri Elise Appleby, Michael DiSanto, Vince Fossitt! ‪#‎OneLove‬

But this is Buffalo, and you know the party didn’t stop there.

The music continued just down the street where Brooklyn based Funk group Turkuaz played an inspired two set sold out show that almost tore the roof off of Buffalo Iron Works, including a special sit ins with Eric Crittenden on Sax and Mike from Aqueous on Guitar:
