2 Guys Drinkin’ Beer

Back again this week, Ron and Terry, and possibly a percussionist, have a high-energy show featuring all your favorite classic rock & pop favorites, and will always try to play any requests thrown at them. They are always “up” for a good time, with or without the beer.

This quintet plays both originals & covers with a sound & feel of the original artists from any era. A must-see act from the Buffalo area, they play Classic Rock…that COUNTS!

Gin Mill, 9:00 pm


Returning again for some great party music, this regional favorite is quite popular around here, love to play from a huge playlist of Classic Rock favorites, and might even bring some of their fans, known as “Zephyrheads” to help them celebrate a snowy Saturday night in EVL.

The Rockaz

If you’re one of those fans of hot weather “island” music, these Buffalo area masters of the genre’ will bring it on back to ya’. Their music is a blend of Roots Reggae, Funk, Ska, Rockin’ Soul, Dub (I had to look this up…it’s instrumental reggae), Hip Hop, and down-home goodness.

A Touch Of Gray

My apologies to Red Gray for last week’s not-so-accurate description of Touch Of Gray’s personnel…his partner is R.P.Jones on harmonica ( billed on his card as the “hardcore troubadour”), and together these two blow out some fine acoustic Country, Blues, Folk & Rock, and Red will even ask you for suggestions and requests, so come on in and take him up on it !

Joe Wagner & Friends

Around here, “Wings & Wagner” is as popular a pairing as bacon & eggs or peanut butter & jelly…and even more so every Wednesday night, singin’ great classic Folk & Rock to an appreciative audience who love his harmonica and laid-back acoustic stylings.

Preston Shannon

A native of Memphis, Preston is a powerful guitarist also blessed with a compelling and soulful voice who sounds like a cross between Otis Redding and Bobby Womack. He’s a big attraction on Beale Street, and I’m sure he’ll be just as popular on Monroe Street, too.

Freddie N’ Tuck

Start your weekend early with your friends Freddie & Rod, a dynamic duo you can really dance to with acoustic guitar, drums & bongos ( and maybe Jay and Joey D…the rhythm devils ), their show sounds like a bigger group. They play new stuff, old stuff, and always GOOD stuff !


Madigans, 9:30 pm

Party Squad

Buffalo’s premier party/cover band, Party Squad has been a ski season staple here for 21 years – one visit and you’ll see why.

DJ Felony

DJ Felony ( AKA Keith Barmore) prides himself on being a totally open format DJ, spinning all types of tunes. He does it all, and loves every second of it !
