Ray D. O’Flyer

Local returning favorite here at the Mill, this quartet plays what they call “Southern-Fried Boogie-Billy,” which sounds like high-energy classic Southern rock and blues, but it also sounds like a great time !

The Stevie Project

This blues trio from the Buffalo area returns with their Stevie Ray Vaughan-inspired Texas blues, performed with that special something you blues fans will love.

Just two guys (drinking pop), who do down-home, laid-back versions of pop, rock and country favorites better than anyone I know … even without a campfire.

Wagner & Winston

What better way to celebrate hump day than with Joe & John, Ellicottville’s kings of the “acoustic comfort” style that has made them an EVL institution for over 30 years! They play and sing while the kitchen cooks your wings.

Fred n’ Tuck

Part mellow, part rockin’. Not too many acoustic duos include a drum set and bongos, but that’s what makes Freddie & Rod sound unique, doing a wider range of songs with that bigger sound.
