Buffalo Blues musicians helping homeless veterans

Aug 31, 2016

A brand new Western New York music campaign recently kicked off on-line called BuffaloBlues.ORG. It’s too help homeless veterans and is building fast. WBFO's Eileen Buckley met with two musicians who are participating. 

Recordings are underway by a number of well-known regional musicians to create a benefit CD to be released November 16, 2016 that will feature a multi-band event at the Sportsmen's Tavern and a series of other benefit efforts. Buffalo Blues for the Homeless will support returning war veterans who are in need of housing and other services those services are provided by the Western New York Housing Coalition.
