Canal Fest of the Tonawandas, Inc. with 55 Main

Update 7/22/16: The wife and I made it out to see 55 Main last night on our anniversary. The band sounded great and we were able to see a great version of Feeling Alright with Justin Leach on guitar.
Dan was friendly enough to let me sit in on one with Tom Leach who also sat in on guitar, for a rockin' ZZ Top medley. Thank You Dave! Party Time USA!

The 34th Annual Canal Fest of the Tonawandas is being held on July 17 - 24, 2016.
Included in the Canal Fest Event lineup is a special musical performance by the popular band 55 Main. The 55 Main band will be performing on Friday, July 22nd @ the Elk's Lodge #860 from 8pm - 12am. The Elk's Lodge is located on 55 Main St. in Tonawanda.

55 Main covers Classic Rock, Southern Rock, and much more!! The 55 Main band is comprised of Randy Barnard (lead guitar, vocals), Tony Chimera (percussion), Danny Manzella (vocals), Dan Gore (drums) and Dave Neumann (bass). 55 Main is a great rock band of very talented musicians who have been entertaining the WNY area for the last 3 years. They formed after meeting at Open Mic night at the old Club 55. That's why they decided on the name 55 Main.
Check out 55 Main when they return to where their rockin' journey began @ the Elk's Lodge on July 22nd starting at 8pm.  I promise you will enjoy yourself. Hope to see everyone out!!

Very special thanks goes out to Dave Neumann. Thank You Dave!
