2018 Blues Lineup:
Hayden Fogle Band
Hayden Fogle is a young star in the blues world and he’s excited to be back at BBQ & Blues for a fourth straight year. This 17-year-old’s talent continues to grow. He and his band are a fan favorite around Buffalo and WNY.
Currently Freightrain is back on the local Buffalo music scene! Featuring Robert “Freightrain” Parker on lead vocals and bass guitar, Grace Lougen on lead guitar, Damone Jackson on drums and Greg Leech on keys. Inspired by many well-known blues rock artists, Parker’s booming rapid fire licks earned him the name “Freightrain from New York” by musicians as he always leaps into the depths of the rhythm section with the strength of a Train.
That Gateway Band
Comprised of Gateway Longview staff members, this talented band has been preparing their whole lives to showcase their skills at the 10th annual BBQ & Blues Bash!
Mom Said No
Buffalo, NY-based alternative band Mom Said No has sprinted out of the garage and set its sights on the national stage. While some of the group’s members are still in their teens, Mom Said No has already perfected its own brand of high-energy, dramatic, and tuneful pop. With the vocal harmonic influences from The Beach Boys to the high energetic performances of James Brown and the pop sensibilities of The Cars, Mom Said No is truly an experience of its own.
