Critt's Juke Joint Unlocks the Music of Stevie Wonder with Keys of Love

Critt's Juke Joint Unlocks the Music of Stevie Wonder with Keys of Love

BUFFALO, NY- September 26, 2015- CRITT'S JUKE JOINT UNLOCKS STEVIE WONDER WITH KEYS OF LOVE

What happens when a Buffalo-based musical mega-talent takes on the tunes of a legendary virtuoso?

A genre-bending, funkalicious super-event that is sure to fill the dance floor.

Nothing brings out the love, in this case Buffalove, like a Stevie Wonder melody, and there is no one more suited to guide an audience through that spiritual, funky and feel-good soul than jazz frontman Eric Crittenden.

After drawing one of the largest crowds of the summer to Canalside with his collaborative Wonder tribute featuring the BPO, Eric Crittenden, a Buffalo funk and soul pincipal for almost two decades, knew he had something special.

"Covering Stevie Wonder this summer with the BPO taught me that mastery is in the simplicity of the listener. We all shoot for that in our songwriting and whatever in life we are trying to accomplish," says Crittenden.

First Annual Erie County Fair Held in Buffalo Courthouse

First Annual Erie County Fair Held in Buffalo Courthouse

The Ladies were a bit reluctant to attend the first Erie County Fair, in 1841, so officials announced: "Constables will be on grounds to preserve order and the visits of the ladies will be welcomed to the exhibition."

Thus reassured, the ladies tied on there bonnets, and sallied forth. They even attended the plowing matches, one of the main attractions of early fairs, and it was reported "more than 2,000 people gathered in carriages and on horseback. A great many ladies, lured by delicious weather and the interest of the occasion, graced the attendance, adding interest and brilliancy to the scene." Even in those days the ladies did not like to miss any of the fun.
