Gin Mill, 9 p.m.

Dan Bennet Duo

New to the Gin Mill, but not to this area›s music scene, we have the Dan Bennett Duo. A very capable guitarist and vocalist (I›ve played with Dan many times over the years), his readings of classic rock, rockabilly and country will keep you entertained all night long. Good luck, Dan!

Balloons, 7 p.m.

Only Humen

This award-winning classic rock trio from Buffalo has been an Ellicottville mainstay for as long as I can remember. Frank, Rick and Chris (the newest member) put on a stage show with polished vocals and harmonies, tight musicianship, humor and high energy that keeps audiences happy everywhere they play.

3 Easy Pieces

I guess you could call this band “Fred & Tuck” with a big bottom … bass, that is. Jeff Johnson from Nashville Express provides the extra bass and vocals that give this trio and their wide assortment of tunes that extra rhythmical something for a musically enjoyable Saturday night here at the start of the EVL “mud season.”


Balloons, 6 p.m.

Tas Cru

I like to call Tas Cru a bluesman extraordinaire with the soul of a poet. He has a knack for playing great blues and writing quirky, humorous lyrics. His last appearance here was during EVL’s Blues Weekend last January, and his latest album “Tired Of Bluesmen Cryin’” has been charting well in national rankings … a must-see act if you are into “da blues!”

The Pub (Great Valley), 

9 p.m.

Big Boogie Band

Another premier act this week is Big Boogie Band, a seasoned quintet from Randolph, N.Y. Their leader Butch told me their specialty is Southern rock and blues — covers of the Allman Bros., Lynyrd Skynyrd, etc., plus other rock and blues classics. This music always sounds best with keyboards (which they have), so come on down and give them a listen.

Gin Mill, 8 p.m.

Joe Wagner & Friends

Joe and his “acoustic comfort music” are always ready to make your Wednesday night in EVL a comfortable one. Rumor has it Joe›s longtime partner John Winston will be back next month, but for now, his «friends» are usually Freddie on percussion or Gary on guitar. Joe›s smooth, laid-back renditions of pop, Rock, folk and country favorites have made him an EVL mainstay for 29 years!

Gin Mill, 8 p.m.

Freddie n’ Tuck

Freddie Joseph, percussion and vocals, teamed with Rod Tucker, guitar and vocals, entertains every Thursday at the Gin Mill, with an exciting mix of new and old songs from pop, rock, country and even reggae, usually sweetened with the saucy spoons of  Joey D. Stop in and get ready for a great night.


The Pub, 9 p.m.

DJ Felony (alias Keith) prides himself on putting on the best sound and light show in the area. Open format karaoke and top tunes keeps the action going all night long in Great Valley.
