Music Foundation in Buffalo, NY

The SAM Foundation and its members would not disagree with U2’s Bono who said of music, “It can change the world because it can change people.” And so since its formation just over three years ago, along with celebrating, supporting and promoting the tremendous talent we have in Western NY, the Sportsmen’s Americana Music Foundation has been committed to getting music into ears and instruments into the hands of as many kids as possible.

Focusing on under-served communities, the Foundation has provided musical lessons on all types of instruments, vocal, and performance training to hundreds of young western New Yorkers to date. Working in collaboration with great community resources such as The Valley Community Association, The Old First Ward Community Center, Child and Adolescent Treatment Centers, Boys and Girls Clubs, our educational advisory staff structures programs that are as entertaining as they are educational.





To foster, promote and expand community appreciation for Americana music from Buffalo and Western New York through the production and sponsorship of performance and broadcast events and presentation of seminars and workshops on Americana music.
