These two guys have more names than an English Earl, but a rose by any other name plays just as well as Fred & Tuck on Thursday nights, but they kick it up a notch when they’re allowed to play past midnight. They also pull out more songs you normally don’t hear, along with some new ones as well, so listen and learn … just for the fun of it.

The Joe Wagner Band

Most soloists will “upsize” to a three- or four-piece group on special occasions, and Joe is no exception. His mercurial lineup keeps his repertoire sounding interesting, which includes a wide range of folk, rock and blues favorites, with Joe switching between guitar and bass. Stop in and see another side of Joe.

The Pub, 4 p.m.

Toucan Jam

This local area duo loves to rock and plays a diverse selection of music from the ‘60s to today, including some instrumentals as well.

Balloons, 6 p.m.

The Boneshakers

This tight six-piece group from the Buffalo area plays a wide variety of blues, classic rock, rhythm & blues, country and country-rock “with crowd pleasing assurance.” Boasting a sax man and a keyboardist who plays a real Hammond B3 with a Leslie speaker, their show sounds very authentic and masterful.
