Live Music Benefit for SAMF Members

The Sportsmen’s Americana Music Foundation, the Sportsmen’s Tavern, Babeville, Buffalo Ironworks and The Big Easy in Buffalo are all making it a little easier for some lucky SAM Foundation members to get out and enjoy some live music this month.  Pairs of free tickets are being offered to active members of the Foundation.

Here’s what you do; look at the list and see what you’d like to attend and are available to attend and send me an email at by Friday night December 8th at 9 pm and tell me what you would like to win. Pretty simple to get in on this member benefit – you just gotta move quickly. With shows coming up on December 12th and 13th, we shortened the time frame to enter your name, just a bit.

The Last Waltz 2023 and Beyond

I’ve written a lot about it before, and I’m sure I will again, but right now I just want to thank everyone who attended Buffalo’s The Last Waltz on November 17th at Babeville.

This was our 6th sold-out show, and it was a fantastic night of music, performance, collaboration, friendship and camaraderie. The cast of the show is extraordinary; sometimes I can’t believe we managed to put together such an amazing group of characters! The enthusiasm of the cast and the audience is a huge part of what makes this show so special.  Mark your calendar for our next edition of Buffalo’s The Last Waltz on November 22, 2024.
