Letter: Change should offer local musicians a shot

Change should offer local musicians a shot

It recently was announced that an out-of-town entity has been chosen to schedule and hire music entertainment for Western New York’s finest outdoor location at Buffalo’s Canalside for the upcoming year.

What a perfect opportunity to finally showcase the rich treasure trove of homegrown Buffalo musicians, something that has been amiss in recent years at our waterfront location. One only has to peruse the long list of Buffalo Hall of Fame musicians – past and present – to realize that one of our greatest assets lies right under our noses. It’s time to expose a greater audience to this amazing talent base right here in our fair city.

“Pure Buffalo,” an evening celebrating and listening to the great talent pool of Buffalo and Western New York musicians would fill Canalside, and just as important, springboard our locally grown artists to the bigger stage. Not many cities have the homegrown A-list choices that we see in many of our clubs and music venues. It’s time to let these cats out of the bag.

Bring the best to Canalside. We want to hear pure Buffalo.
