You’ve heard the saying – if it’s not broken, don’t fix it!

That is how we feel about the live music for our 2nd annual Totally Buffalo Festival! Last year, everyone seemed to LOVE the bands – so we figured – let’s bring everyone back!!

So we are. The 2nd annual Totally Buffalo Festival will be held at Buffalo Riverworks, 359 Ganson Street, Buffalo – on May 26, 2018 from 12-8 p.m.




This is so amazing because again – we’ve made a point of it to include several different genres of music to reflect WNY’s vibrant and multicultural music heritage. Here’s the lineup along with a bit of info about each great act:

Growlers Blues Band (BLUES)

The Growlers Blues Band delivers a powerful and unique blend of gutbucket blues tempered with rock ‘n’ roll sensibility. A combination that’s winning over crowds nightly throughout WNY and beyond, the band lays down grooves so deep that you can’t help but dance!

Son Boricua (LATIN)

Son Boricua specializes in music from the Caribbean including Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Dominican Republic and South America. The band’s styles include Rumba, Salsa, Cha-Cha, Bolero, Merengue and Mariachi. To add that extra spice, try Son Boricua!

 90 West (COUNTRY)

The 90 WEST Band is a high-energy country band playing all of your favorites from today’s country, as well as your country classics! From current artists like Luke Bryan and Miranda Lambert, to the outlaws Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, there’s a little something for everyone. 90 WEST has been entertaining Western New York and the surrounding areas since the year 2000 and is made up of some of WNY’s top musicians.

White Chocolate (R & B)

For over 15 years, White Chocolate has playing some of the most popular events in the Buffalo-Niagara region with music that speaks to your feet and your soul! From formal to funky, White Chocolate can lay it down or pick it up with the best R & B dance music. From Motown to modern day along with some hip hop and rock n’ roll, the band appeals to every generation.

Dale Toliver Band (JAZZ)

The Dale Toliver Band is founded by Buffalo’s very own jazz guitarist Dale Toliver. Dale is known for his seasoned innovative style and performs classic jazz standards, smooth jazz mixed with blues, R&B, funk, as well as original music he composed and arranged. Dale works with a set of professional and dedicated musicians. They play it all and are sure to please.

 Scott Celani Band (ROCK/POP)

Singer-songwriter Scott Celani and his supporting players are hitting venues all over WNY and all over the U.S. At a typical show, audience members are treated to Celani’s well-crafted, melodic pop songs. Whether with the full band or in acoustic format, Celani offers a powerhouse of rhythm and melody.

Having toured throughout the U.S. and Canada, Scott’s music has been played or is being played on radio stations all over North America. Celani has shared the stage with the likes of The Goo Goo Dolls, Darius Rucker, Blues Traveler, Ben Folds and REO Speedwagon (among many others), and his 6 original releases have received rave reviews, extensive commercial radio play as well as television and film placement.


We will let you know what time each band will play once we get that all sorted out!

We will be putting out a list of the 90 vendors who are taking place – once it is finalized. (We are full – with a waiting list of about 75)

We hope to see you there!
