Hi, I have a ticket available for this sold-out show. Call Trinity at 716-753-2800 to buy it. Thanks!
I love that we have this venue in Jamestown. Listening to great musicians, and taking photos of them. It was a good night. Great job to all those who performed. Thanks again, Bill for having me.
This two-in-one show was extraordinary, the instrumentals and vocals were superb. Thanks Bill! We are fortunate and blessed to have your "Backroom Radio Hour" vision.
