Our music plans for the Totally Buffalo 716MAS Festival

We are super excited about this amazing two-day event that will be one huge shop-local extravaganza!

We loved the bands that we had at our first ever Totally Buffalo Festival in May – they were great and really rocked it out of the park. For this festival, however, we are doing something a little different. We would like to focus more on choirs and singing groups. We feel it would really add to the Christmas spirit at this family-friendly event. It will also give our talented youth the opportunity to perform live in front of a big crowd!

If you know of a remarkable group, please let us know. It could be a church group, school group, or independent group of musicians.

So, far – we can tell you that we will have The Queen City Sweethearts! Wait until you hear these ladies – they are AMAZING!!!

If you would like to recommend a group – please email ScottCelanimusic@gmail.com.

Thank you and we hope to see you there! More details very soon – but here is the event info for the festival!!  CLICK HERE.

    Hello Mary,
    A former Barbershop quartet of mine sang for your birthday party a few years back. Or perhaps it was a baby shower now that I think about it. You were expecting a baby….that part I remember. That performance was a lot of fun.

    My current quartet Harmonic Edge would love to participate in the 716mas festival. We do have a Facebook page and I will go to the festival page and sign up to be considered. I just wanted to say hello here. Thank you for the possible opportunity. We have about 45 minutes worth of Christmas music in our repertoire.

    We would love to bring our “Lock City Sound” to this event, UNFORTUNATELY, those two dates are the dates of our Lewiston and Lockport Christmas concerts. We love to participate in diverse events so please feel free to contact us if something else comes up in the future.
