January 23, 2015 will find the perennial classic-rock favorite, America, filling the Seneca Allegany Events Center with their melodic sound that became a mainstay of pop rock music of the 1970’s.  I had the pleasure to catch up with Dewey Bunnell by phone; we talked about 2015 marking their 45th year in the business, a future project, how the band got its name, and what keeps him and Gerry Beckley on their game four and a half decades later.

CHRISTMAS IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER
 
November 28, 2014

A visit to the outskirts of Elllicottville or 20 minutes down the road to Randolph will prove that one day is just not enough to explore the many unique gift items and holiday events that the season offers.

As the days become shorter and the nights become colder, every falling snowflake is a reminder that the Christmas season is now upon us! While the retail craze of “Black Friday” has become a holiday tradition in and of itself, there’s another shopping day that is becoming more recognized and celebrated every year: “Small Business Saturday.” That’s right - instead of heading to the malls and giant retailers for Christmas gifts, more and more shoppers choose to patronize locally-owned stores in their own towns on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

Late fall into early winter can evoke more terror than a skeleton on Halloween to some, but don't stress ... come chill out in Cattaraugus County!  The “in between” season still offers much to do here with celebrations of Halloween, holiday shopping (it’s time to start thinking Christmas!), and plenty of ways to enjoy the outdoors, regardless of the weather!

As the saying goes … “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”  The Osmond family has been proving that for over five decades.  Three of the Osmond Brothers - Merrill, Jay and Jimmy - will be bringing the songs and memories of the past 50 years to the Seneca Allegany Casino Events Center in Salamanca, NY for five shows in May.

   It was on the Andy Williams Show in 1962 that the world got their first real glimpse of the Osmond Brothers doing their harmonizing barbershop routine, and from there they skyrocketed to success creating “Osmondmania” by 1970, when they could barely make it to their dressing rooms through the droves of wild adoring teenage girls.

If you’re a fan of classic rock music, then you’re a fan of Grand Funk Railroad.  The five-piece band that made it big in the 1970’s is a staple on any classic rock radio station you listen to.  I had the chance to catch up with original member and singer/drummer, Don Brewer, from his home in Florida on a very snowy day here in Western New York.

The title of 50’s and 60’s rockers Sha-Na-Na’s first album, released in 1969, was a premonition of sorts that “Rock and Roll Is Here To Stay.” Well into their fourth decade of recording and performing around the world, these “greasers” have built a bridge that connects three generations of families to good old rock and roll music.  Starting Wednesday, Dec. 4, Sha Na Na will be bringing their Rockin’ Christmas Show to Seneca Allegany Casino’s Events Center in Salamanca, NY for five shows, including matinee and evening shows.
