Niagara Gazette — Tickets for Joe Bonamassa at Shea’s start at $69 and are available through Ticketmaster.
On Saturday, Matchbox Twenty frontman Rob Thomas returns to Seneca Niagara’s Events Center for an intimate evening of music. The show has long since sold-out, and I imagine anyone that was fortunate enough to see him the last time he was in town probably snatched up these tickets quickly, the previous show was phenomenal, one of the best I have ever seen at Seneca Niagara.
Thomas and his wife Marisol founded a charitable foundation based in New York City called Sidewalk Angels. The foundation supports a number of worthwhile causes including no-kill animal shelters and help for the homeless.
On Monday over at the UB Center for The Arts they will be hosting the return of Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter and guitarist Boz Scaggs. His professional recording career started with the Steve Miller Band, Scaggs received songwriting credits and contributed lead vocals on the Steve Miller Band’s first two albums in the late 1960s. Just last week I heard “Lido Shuffle” on a Canadian rock station, and it is a song that has not lost any of its magic.
Speaking of magic, my show on a tank of gas this week is Duke Jupiter’s free show at the Lilac Festival in Rochester on Friday. Having grown up in Rochester, Duke Jupiter was an important part of my youth. They were recently inducted into the Rochester Music Hall of Fame, a well-deserved honor.
