C O Jones to perform at the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame 2008 Reunion Benefit at the Lafayette Tap Room.
The Class of 2008 is back. If you missed them at the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame (BMHOF) 25th Anniversary Induction Gala at the Tralf this past October, you get to see them perform again at the Lafayette Tap Room this Sunday at 4:00 PM.
C O Jones last performed at an electric performance at the Mohawk Place in October. You will have another chance to see them on one of the slowest entertainment days of the year, the Sunday after Christmas. The show starts just after the Buffalo Bills game at Ralph Wilson Stadium lets out. Presale donations of $10 are available at the BMHOF website, or in person at the Lafayette Tap Room, $15 day of show.

The Buffalo Music Hall of Fame (BMHOF) mission is to showcase the talents of its inductees, and to create a physical museum in downtown Buffalo, and not just a virtual one. This kicks off the 2008-2009 Spotlight Concert Series, a collaboration with the Lafayette Tap Room. The next event in the series is tentatively scheduled for March 2009.
Whether you are a fan of the Buffalo Sound, a groupie, a budding Hendrix, in the business, and autograph hound, or a dancer, there is something for everybody here, a music lover’s delight.
