A performance of the song “Lancefication,” co-produced by the late Lance Diamond and Robby Takac of the Goo Goo Dolls, is a highlight of the BuffaLove Fest taking place from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. Friday at the Buffalo Zoo.
The song will be performed by the BuffaLoveBird band featuring seasoned local musicians Ali Critelli, Eric Crittenden, Vinne DeRosa, Rob Lynch and Mike Wagner. The tribute to Diamond honors his past performances at BuffaLove Fest.
Also scheduled to perform are Blackrock Zydeco and the Albrights, with DJ sets by Camaican Sensation.
Locally operated food trucks – 18 this year – and a selection of regional craft beers will also be part of the BuffaLove mix.
Tickets for the 21-and-over event are $20 advance, through buffalozoo.org. Admission at the zoo gates on the day of the event will be $30.
