Hosted by Buffalo music historian and Buffalo Music Hall of Fame founder Rick Falkowski, the afternoon will see the dial turned back on the city's rich musical history to tell the stories of early rock musicians, radio stations and venues that helped to shape the scene during the 1950s and 1960s.
Musical entertainment will be provided by throwback acts the Heenan Brothers (playing music of the Erie Canal), the Joe Giambra Jazz Quartet (1940s and '50s) and Big Wheelie (1950s and '60s).
