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.

Enjoy the Journey Art Gallery invites the public to the opening reception of the Evans Art Guild’s new “Gateways” exhibit taking place Friday, Sept. 11 at the gallery, located at 1168 Orchard Park Road in West Seneca. Gateways are openings or entrances that guide us to someplace else, which entice us to explore somewhere different. Artists have always been fascinated with gateways and have interpreted them literally, as well as metaphorically.
