The last time we saw Orleans was at the Riviera Theatre in March. At that time the band were forced to perform as a four piece unit due to circumstances that arose. Thursday night the band was at full throttle with guitarist Fly Amero back in the mix to compliment Tom Lane. The Hoppen Brothers with Lance on bass and Lane on keyboards were also accompanied by the solid drumming of Brady Spencer. The band sounded refreshed and with the venue’s immaculate acoustics simply made it top notch. Continue reading

We got together to discuss the catalog off Rainbow. Oddly enough this band never had a gold record and only reached the top 40 with one song. An interesting band to say the least. They had many talented vocalists and musicians but never seemed to get over that hump. Check it out and please leave some feedback.

Everyone’s favorite hometown band, Buffalo’s own Goo Goo Dolls came home to Keybank Center Saturday evening to close out their 2022 summer tour.
Oddly enough the last time the band played the arena was in 2003 as a special guest to headliner Bon Jovi that particular evening. The band seems to have played every major venue in town between that time. Let’s hope they just keep future shows at the arena as the atmosphere is so much better than any other venue in town.
