If Slyfest missed your radar in 2015, you will want to pencil in this great laid back local festival for early September 2016.

This small festival hosted by Griffin Brady and the Slyboots School of Music & Art  nestled on a hill at the glorious Griffis Sculpture Park celebrated its 10th year in pure fashion.

The highlight for us was the Buffalo Afrobeat Orchestra:

 

As always, Eric T. Crittenden and Critt’s Juke Joint featuring Toney Rhodes, Declan Miers, deshawn Jackson and an appearance from Jim Bohm left the crowd wanting more:
