RT Live

This is just RT Live (Rod Tucker guitar and vocals) with his Thursday night partner (and human drum machine) Freddie Joseph, kicking it up a notch (yes, Woody) when they can play past midnight. Their usual set list, which is always changing, is augmented with more experimental and/or new songs, sometimes performed for the first time live. Come check out a great time.


Balloons, 7 p.m.

Harvey & the Hurricanes

I first met Harvey Murello about 30 years ago when he owned Muchachos taco shop in Olean and his rockin› blues band carries on that tasty tradition. Along with the two Pauls (Iannello and  Siwula), their blues and classic rock repertoire can be mellow or rockin› and always at a comfortable volume level — one of my all-time favorites, so give them a listen.

Gin Mill, 9 p.m.


Always a Gin Mill favorite, Zephyr puts out great, classic party music. This regional favorite is quite popular in these parts and has quite an extensive song list of classic rock favorites to keep you on that dance floor. Their followers are known as “Zephyrheads.”

Balloons, 6 p.m.

Black Widow

A Buffalo-area quartet, they are always high up on fans lists as one of the top rock bands, and that rock category covers a lot of ground — hard and not-so-hard to classic favorites. This band is definitely not for the faint of heart, so rock on!

Joe Wagner & Friends

Every Wednesday night (with very few exceptions), Joe has been playing here for 29 YEARS! I’m checking with the “Guinness Book of World Records” to see where Joe’s tenure ranks him. Along with his eclectic blend of pop, rock and folk favorites, the chicken wings have been featured here for that time as well. You haven’t experienced EVL until you’ve seen Joe.

Freddie n’ Tuck

For your dining and dancing pleasure, these two guys will get you in the mood to start your EVL weekend off with a musical bang with a wide variety of classic hits mixed in with new stuff as well. This two-man show sounds like a larger ensemble, occasionally helped out by world percussion section. Enjoy!

The Pub, 9 p.m.

DJ Felony and his alter-ego Keith pride themselves with being a totally open format DJ, spinning all kinds of music. He does it all, and loves every minute of it!
